It seems that comedienne Jenny Éclair has failed to amuse the bosses over at ITV, and her fellow panellists apparently as it’s been reported today that she’s been fired from the show.
The Daily Mirror reports that Loose Women’s producers have declined to renew Jenny’s contract with the show, and she will subsequently film her last edition next month.
Show insiders have revealed that there have been “two distinct camps” behind the scenes of the hit daytime chat show, with Carol McGiffin, Carol Vorderman, Denise Welch, Andrea McLean and former Corrie star Sally Lindsay in one group, while Jenny and Janet Street-Porter are in the other.
That divide apparently came about as a result of an incident around eight months ago which saw Jenny and Janet apologizing for drawing “moustaches and devil horns” on framed photographs of singers Myleene Klass and Katherine Jenkins at the ITV studios in South London… Read more & comment »
As we reported last week, Loose Women panelists Janet Street-Porter and Jenny Éclair “defaced” photographs of Myleene Klass and Katherine Jenkins at ITV’s studios.
The prank – which saw the new Loose Women stars drawing and scribbling on the pictures – came after Myleene and Katherine appeared as guests on the show.
It was also reported that just minutes before the show aired, Janet made a “snide remark” about Katherine, having previously labeled her a “self-centred diva.”
However, it seems that ITV bosses have sent a written apology for the “mean spirited” prank to both Myleene and Katherine, as well as a bouquet of flowers. Read more & comment »
It’s been reported by the Daily Mirror today that Loose Women stars Janet Street Porter and Jenny Éclair – who are two of the latest additions to the hit show’s panel – defaced framed photographs of Katherine Jenkins and Myleene Klass.
The paper states that the two were caught out when they were overheard “bragging” about having damaged the portraits, however, both insist there was no malicious intent and it was done only for a laugh.
However, it seems not everyone on the ITV daytime show was impressed at the prank, especially given that Janet allegedly insulted Katherine Jenkins when she appeared on the show recently.
A show insider told the paper, “For some reason Janet didn’t seem to take to Katherine when she was on the show…
“And before going live whispered a slightly snide comment.
“Luckily it wasn’t picked up by Katherine but Janet was openly joshing about it afterwards.” Read more & comment »
