Joe Lycett walks off C4 programme
The comedian left many people baffled after he stormed off the Channel 4 daytime show on Thursday, July 1st.
During one of the segments, Steph showed a picture of the comedian in his garden when she noticed a plastic bottle next to him. Earlier, Joe mentioned that he had stopped using white plastic to help the environment.
“You’re well into this, aren’t you Joe, because you’ve pimped up your garden and made it look more Love Island,” Steph said before she asked: “Isn’t that one of the bottles you said you’d stopped using, in that picture?”
“I didn’t realise I was on Newsnight, Steph,” Joe said in response, which left people in the studio laughing.
Steph got back to presenting while Joe was seen taking off his microphone and walking off the studio.
He didn’t return after the commercial break, with Steph telling viewers: “Joe Lycett was going to stick with us but he’s had to leave”.
