Joel Dommet breaks silence after Christine McGuinness bullied on TV claim

Joel Dommett has reportedly broken his silence following claims by Christine McGuinness that she felt being bullied during an appearance on one of his comedy panel TV shows.

It comes after the Real Housewives of Cheshire star alleged in her new memoir, A Beautiful Nightmare, that she ended an appearance of an ITV show in floods of tears.

The 33-year-old recalled feeling “upset” and “mortified” following comments made by someone on the show which are thought to have been said while the cameras were rolling.

She claimed that they told her: “I’ve got no f***ing idea who you are. I don’t care who you are, I don’t know who you think you are, and I don’t know what you’re even doing here.”

It is understood that the mum-of-three refused to name the show in question, though it was later reported that it is thought to be Hey Tracey! which was hosted by Joel alongside his virtual assistant Donna Preson.

And now, the presenter of the show – which debuted in 2019 – is said to have broken his silence on the claims put forward by the reality star.

According to The Sun, the 36-year-old has responded to the allegations and confessed he was upset to think anyone left the studio feeling hurt.

He reportedly told the publication: “At the end of the day it is a comedy show. It was made in jest.

“I don’t like anyone to feel like they went away from the show unhappy. I would never like anyone to feel like they are sad after a show of mine.”

The comedian suggested he was blissfully unaware of any concerns while working on set but confirmed he sent a text to Christine’s husband, Paddy McGuinness, after the show to say she did “really well” on air.

The Daily Star have approached the representatives of Joel Dommett, Christine McGuinness and Donna Preston for a comment.

It comes after Christine and her husband Paddy aired their documentary which focused on what life is like for them with three children who are all on the Autistic Spectrum.

The programme Our Family and Autism was wildly praised by viewers up and down the country as it opened up the realities of Autism and helped to fight some of the stigmas attached to the mental condition.
