Jim's jokes fall flatter than a warmed-over celebrity soufflé
Sunday 16 September 2007
In a reality TV shocker about as surprising as the sun coming up in the morning, comedy throwback Jim Davidson has put his foot in it again.
He has been chucked off ITV's Hell's Kitchen for hilariously calling contestant Brian Dowling a "shirt-lifter" and for suggesting that all gay men "pull the same face".
Davidson, divorced four times, once refused to play to an audience with people in wheelchairs in the front row, and won't perform in Great Yarmouth because it's "full of overweight people in flip-flops and fat children of all colours and no class". Poor Great Yarmouth.
He said he is "not homophobic" and only said what he did out of shyness. "I don't really have experience of such people on a day-to-day level", he said. That's all right, then.
