I jokingly tweeted him in jest about Celebrity Juice recently to which he responded by blocking me. As a fan of Bo' Selecta! growing up I was quite astonished to find he can't take a tad bit of banter. Pathetic.

Glad the film flopped.

Apparently he is nothing like he is on tv, meant to be real miserable. The film was awful, total crap

So, what exactly happened? What did you say? The thread falls flat on it's arse if we don't know what he overreacted to.

I've never tweeted him or followed him but when I looked at his account a while ago, I noticed that he doesn't take criticism or 'banter' very well.

I basically asked how necessary was a certain accessory of Keith Lemon's clothing was to the character given he has never shown any sign of feigning injury.

And was it a simple question or did you use 'flowery' language in the name of attempted humour ?

It was a rather simple yet bland question with no crude undertones. I was asking him out of interest.

I don't think I've ever seen Leigh Francis as himself, he seems to always go everywhere in public dressed as Keith Lemon.

He sounds like a bit of a prat to me. Lots of these comedians can dish it out but can't take it back. Your request sounds low key compared with some of the crap that flies about on Twitter, OP.

Lol, would you mind re-posting your query here in the exact way you phrased it pretty please.

I think he appeared once as himself on The Frank Skinner Show and had Davina McCall there holding his hand for support.

Also sure i've seen a youtube clip of him on the red carpet where he wasn't in character.

Apart from that when i've seen him he's always been seen in character.

From what I've seen of his replies to questions I think he tends to get asked a lot of the same questions over and over again-mad fans of crappy pop bands asking if/when they will be on the show when he has nothing to do with the booking process (obviously) and never knows who is on until he gets to the weekly recordings, why Keith Lemon wears a bandage etc. So I imagine he just blocks anyone who asks those kind of questions in case they keep spamming him with them.

I've seen the Loose Women interview with him out of character and he comes across as a nice guy.

i presume that's why he wears the bandage so that it shows when he is in character as Lemon (who I really dislike)...I doubt he wears the bandage when on twitter....but I could be wrong

Credit where due I've heard many instances where he has posed for photos etc but to block me for posting a rather polite tweet is absurd.

Yeah, he's become a bit of a prat in the last few months.

I mean, blocking Katie Price from his show because she called Kelly Brook a heffer? I don't like Katie Price by any stretch of the imagination, but banning her from the show because she said a bad word about someone he doesn't like just smacks of immaturity.
