PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Leigh Francis has reignited his feud with Craig David over Bo Selecta. The comedian, known for playing Keith Lemon, has hit back at Craig after his comments about his portrayal on the Channel 4 sketch show. He told the Sun: “Most people are happy with their portrayal on Bo’ Selecta!. Apart from someone we know who wasn’t. The only way it’s ever going to go away from him, if he feels people are going on about it, is to stop talking about it. “It’s ages ago, isn’t it? It is, 20 years ago. I wish he wasn’t upset. I bumped into him at Fearne’s wedding and we hugged it out and everything was all nice.” READ MOREMatt Hancock's lover 'not mixing' with rest of I'm A Celebrity families It comes after Craig blasted Leigh's apology, branding it "insincere". The Rewind singer added: “It comes at a time when George Floyd has been killed. “To then have the Black Lives Matter movement, protests around the world . . . and then it comes at a time as a reaction — ‘I should say my piece’ for something that should never have gone there.

. He said: "[Leigh] was highlighting characteristics he felt would trigger us personally. Every sketch felt personal. "It felt like a vendetta and when it got a following, it became something that affected me. People would shout at me on the street and I felt the same feeling I had when I was bullied at school. Leigh Francis had normalised bullying by making it comedy.” He added: "We can all apologise when on the back foot. The moment of expressing his apology seemed very coincidentally timed. Has he reached out to any of the people he did on his show? He hasn’t reached out to me. Has he gone to communities to talk about bullying? Racism? And to be educated? You can only ask him. “All I’ve seen since his apology is people still tweeting him thinking Bo’ Selecta! is fun and the tone of his response being very much still, ‘I’m the funny guy here’. That he still plays it like a joke after his apology tells me everything.” READ NEXT Olivia Attwood says I'm A Celeb is 'boring' viewers after her sudden exit I'm A Celeb's Chris Moyles sends coded message as girlfriend flies to Oz Phil addresses Holly error as they miss start of ITV This Morning I'm A Celeb fans thrilled over Ant and Dec announcement at end of episode Strictly Come Dancing star Ellie Simmonds dubbed 'an inspiration' over new role Stay up to date with all the latest news from across Birmingham and yo ur area with our daily newsletter.
