I'm A Celebrity's Seann Walsh risks wrath of jungle bosses after vile sex joke about Phillip Schofield | The Sun

I’M A Celebrity star Sean Walsh has risked the wrath of ITV bosses by laying into their most famous stars – Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

Seann made a vile and explicit gag about This Morning star Phil on stage during his new stand-up tour and poked fun at the pair over the “Queuegate” row.


Seann’s comments come after Phil and Holly appeared to previously wade into the backlash after the comic’s snog with Strictly’s Katya Jones.

The pair were caught snogging when they were paired together on the show in 2018.

It ended Katya’s marriage to Neil Jones and Seann’s own relationship.

On stage at the Quay Theatre in Suffolk, Seann shocked as he compared Phil coming out as gay in February 2020 to his snog with Katya.

His joke, which is too rude to repeat, saw Seann calling out what he said were double standards surrounding the reaction to Phil coming out and the reaction to his kiss with Katya.

He added: “What are the rules? I don’t get it!”

A jungle insider told The Sun Seann’s jokes were a bit close to home.

They added: “Seann has been offered a huge opportunity by ITV to appear on the jungle.

“It isn’t a great look now he is making shocking jokes about one of the broadcaster’s biggest stars.

“Seann should not be biting the hand that feeds him – even if it is through the guise of a joke.”

During his set on Tuesday evening, Seann, 36, also mocked the scandal which engulfed Holly and Phil when the Queen was lying in state.

He told the crowds: “I don't like leaving the house but my girlfriend sends me to Tesco's to do the shopping.

“I hate self-service checkouts as it is not self-service is it when you have to wait for assistance?

“Suddenly at the back of Tesco out comes a Tesco tornado helper, they pass the queue quicker than Phil and Holly.”
