Keith Lemon has revealed he no longer enjoys the risque material, which he’s known for expressing on Celebrity Juice anymore as he finds it ’embarrassing’.
The comedian, real name Leigh Francis, was notorious for his hilarious and close-to-the-edge humour to both men and women during his hosting duties on the uncensored ITV2 programme.
However, it looks as though the star wants to leave that all in the past.
The star, 48, appeared on Monday’s Good Morning Britain and it seemed as though he didn’t know how to feel after presenter Adil Ray labelled him ‘the naughtiest man in television’.
‘I don’t like it now if I’m honest’, he explained.
‘I did like it because I was young and I was edgy but now I’m old and a bit tired, especially now. And I’m a bit more pure now because I’ve got children.’
Keith, who has two daughters Matilda and Dolly with wife Jill Carter, suggested that his children were the main reason for wanting to tone down his notable wild antics.
‘So when you do the school run and parents look at you with filthy eyes like “you bad man” it’s sort of embarrassing.’
Celebrity Juice has aired 25 series since it began in 2008 and sees Keith and team captains Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore play games with a number of celebrity guests.
In March, Maya Jama joined the programme as a regular panelist.
The future of the show was questioned after ITV2 boss Pail Mortimer suggested panel shows have become ‘old fashioned’.
She said: ‘They are as old as television if you think about it, we reinvent them, from ‘Shooting Stars’ through to ‘Celebrity Juice’, they’re nothing like the panel show of old.
‘It’s one of those where the host greets you, you know what you’re going to get, you’re introduced to this week’s panel and at the end of the episode they wave goodbye and it’s, “see you next week”.’
Celebrity Juice is avilable to stream on ITV Hub.
