Keith Lemon confirms that his Channel 4 show has been scrapped

Keith Lemon has revealed that his Channel 4 show has been rejected.

The 48-year-old TV star, real name Leigh Francis, stood in front of The Fantastic Factory of Curious Craft alongside Naked Attraction host Anna Richardson.

In the whimsical craft competition, participants competed to secure commissions from famous guests.

Among those looking for unique designs to take home were Eamonn Holmes, Martin Kemp, Spencer Matthews and Nick Grimshaw.

However, Keith has since confirmed that the show has now been renewed.

When the Celebrity Juice star spoke during a live Q&A on Instagram earlier this week, Celebrity Juice shared: “No, it’s not coming back.

“I really enjoyed doing it, but I think it was too expensive.”

Keith’s role was Factory Controller, and he was forced to make decisions about who to send home in the competition.

He told The Sun ahead of the show’s launch in 2020: “I thought it would be easy.

“When I saw Simon Cowell in The X Factor, I thought, what an easy job that shattered dreams.

“It’s terribly hard. It’s awful sometimes when you’ve seen them spend four or six hours on something and it’s ace. But you still have to send someone home.

“I have to think about tax bills to stop myself tearing up.”

Keith recently joked that Holly Willoughby’s husband Dan Baldwin made him say “bad” things to her at Celebrity Juice.

Holly was one of the original team captains alongside Fearne Cotton before leaving the ITV show.

Keith performed at Lorraine last month and talked to Christine Lampard about her TV favorites.

At one point, the naughty guy asked Christine if she was asking her own questions, or if a producer was telling her what to say through her earplug.

The brunette beauty Christine said the questions were her own and that no one told her what to say – unless it was time to end it to go for a commercial break.

Keith went on to admit that he had often produced that told him to say things on the crazy ITV2 show, and went so far as to say that Dan – who is a TV producer on the show – told him that be “bad” to Holly.

He said, “When I make Juice, there’s often someone in my ear who says, ‘Say this.’

“Usually it’s Holly’s husband who says, ‘Say this bad thing to my wife,’ and I say, ‘Now! I’m not saying that!'”
