‘Incredibly right wing’ Joe Lycett throws his name into the hat to replace suspended GB News presenters

Joe Lycett is jumping on a career opportunity in light of the recent GB News controversy, which saw two of its presenters suspended.

Full Story: Right wing Joe Lycett applies to GB News

On Dan Wootton’s GB News show on Tuesday evening, former actor Laurence Fox made a series of vile remarks about female reporter Ava Evans, known as Ava Santina on X, formerly Twitter, including asking: ‘Who would want to shag that?’

Ofcom received over 7,000 complaints, and have launched an investigation into the episode which has resulted in both parties being suspended from the broadcaster.

Spotting a vacancy, 35-year-old comedian Joe appears to have leapt at the chance to present to the nation (he is joking, obviously).

‘I have instructed my management to inform @GBNEWS bosses that I am available to replace any of their suspended presenters,’ he quipped on X this evening.

We have a sneaky suspicion the comedian might not be quite be serious about his application, given his past live TV appearances.
