So at the time we where all wondering why Rufus Hound quit Celebrity Juice because he was great on there and seemed happy.
Now we have learnt that Kim Woodburn had something to do with him quitting the show after she appeared on the panel show and got into a blazing row with the comedian.
Yesterday if you where watching Kim’s interview on ITV’s This Morning you will have heard Phillip Schofield mention to Kim that she had caused trouble on the funny show to what she denied.
Now a podcast has came to light of Rufus talking to Richard Herring what was broadcasted back in 2013 and he says that he had a ‘personal’ row which spiralled out of control while filming the show which was edited out.
Hound admitted that after the row he never received the support he needed so decided to end his contract with ITV2.
‘She was chatting away to Keith Lemon and he asked her: “Have you got much coming up?”
‘She said, “I don’t think the people who make TV would want me anymore”. And I said, genuinely, honestly, “Don’t do yourself down. People will always need a cleaner”.
‘She looked at me and said something on the lines of, “When I want an opinion of a fat man, I’ll stand outside Gregg’s”.
‘It was a proper f*** you, an old-fashioned f*** you, and I just sort of laughed to myself that here she was having a dig because I genuinely hadn’t meant it as an insult. It really f***ing spiralled out of control.’
Then giving a little more info he said:
‘It ended up really horrible. She was trying to be deliberately personal, and by the point it got to that place, I was like, “OK, because I’m a stand-up comedian and if you want to start heckling, I’m good at this”. And so I was personal back.
‘She basically kept saying I was fat. But I did end up saying, “That’s a bit rich coming from a woman who looks like a face drawn on a deflating party balloon”.’
Rufas then said that Kim refused to leave the studio unto he said sorry to her causing the producers of the show to ask him if he could apologize to her.
He then continued to say:
‘She started with the personal stuff. I asked, “Why are you insisting I go and apologise to her? You should say, sorry, it didn’t work out, but it won’t be in the final edit” – and it was not. If you watch it back, we get on famously.
‘But they made me go and apologise, and I was like, “I will do it because you’re my friends. Here’s one thing, though, right?
He followed with:
‘”If I do it, you have to give me a copy of the tape. I know it will never go out. It will never be seen. I will sign whatever it is you need me to sign that says I will never put it on YouTube and I will never show it to people, but I’m sure she started that – by being horrible.
‘”I want to be able to watch it back, because I want to know for my own peace of mind what happened is how I remember it happened”.
‘They said, “Absolutely”. So I was like, okay.’
She would cause a row in a empty room she really would.
We have ti say we liked Rufas on the show and thought he was really good and funny such a shame that eh decided to leave just though Kim.
What do you think?
