More celebrity sackings were announced today, in the wake of what social commentators are calling â€˜a new puritanical ageâ€™. Following comedian Jason Manford being asked to stand down from The One Show last year for â€˜inappropriate behaviourâ€™, ITV has today sacked some of its best loved presenters.
Mancunian, Manford, was requested to leave the BBC after confessing to being alone in a hotel bedroom, late at night and â€˜achieving solo sexual satisfactionâ€™, whilst on tour. These new rigorous standards exacted on the behaviour of media celebrities, even behind closed doors, has brought yet more casualties.
Ant and Dec today resigned from â€˜Iâ€™m a Celebrityâ€™
after confessing to regular bouts of â€˜cheeky banterâ€™ with their office secretary, while Dermot Oâ€™Leary has been sacked from the X Factor after he admitted to â€˜inappropriate and prolonged eye contactâ€™ with his PA.
Speculation is rife over who will replace them although the ex-prime minister and currently unemployed Gordon Brown is hotly tipped for â€˜Celebrityâ€™ while former Fulham and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is the bookiesâ€™ favourite to join Simon Cowell et al.
