Craig David Wasn’t Pleased With Keith Lemon Loose Women


They said you coming on to Justin Timberlake’s, so dance! [crosstalk 00:00:09] Well, it’s like talking to Fleur East when she saying “You better ply that sax!”. Jesus she loves the sax so much, don’t she? [crosstalk 00:00:19] And apparently, it’s not even a sax in that song, it’s a trumpet.

Is it a trumpet?

They just doesn’t flow as lovely. “You better play that trumpet.” [crosstalk 00:00:23] when I was working and stuff I used to be the best breakdancer in Leeds.

[crosstalk 00:00:32] Did you?


Would you do “Strictly”?

No, it’s too much work. [crosstalk 00:00:36] It is.

You don’t like working like that.

Have you done “Strictly”?


Are you dancing icicles?


[crosstalk 00:00:42] Would you do that?

That’s too much work and dangerous.

Yes it is.

What about the jump?[crosstalk 00:00:48] Did you see the

[crosstalk 00:00:52] Have you ever hurt your [inaudible 00:00:52]? Rebecca…

Which one’s Rebecca?

She was the Olympic…

Oh yeah! Did she?

Addington, Rebecca Addington… [crosstalk 00:01:00]


[crosstalk 00:01:03] Yeah I wouldn’t do that…

Did you see the gymnast girl? She was straight down there, hands behind her back down that slide thing.

Would you do that jump?


Why am I promoting the jump? Keith Lemon’s scared ya’ll. Watch tonight on ITV2 10 o’clock… Jump…

[crosstalk 00:01:23] Do you want to tell us about your sketches show?

Well, we did a series. We did alright, so they said “You can have another one.” So we’ve done another one that’s slightly better than the first one I think. We’ve lampooned lots of people and some middle people such as Denzel Raw who is a sculptor at Madame Tussauds, but doesn’t know who he’s sculpting, because he’s not too au fait with the world of celebrity. And yes so he asks him sort of naughty questions of which I won’t repeat…

Have you done Ronald McDonald or something like that?

Ronald McDonald, now that’s the actual name… Donald McRonald for copyright reasons.

We do Captain. Job Settler from all the cartoon characters that aren’t working anymore. So we did the Care Bears that rob an old lady… [crosstalk 00:00:41] They’re horrible!

Was it you that consult with all these really [crosstalk 00:00:41]

I went on over there and the kid is very self-indulgent although they keep telling me not to, to stop saying these self-indulgent stuff, not good for promotion, but it is. I went on holiday, came back and it’s wrote on Post-It notes who I want it to be and what I want it to be, then we stuck it up.. I want to pull on[inaudible 00:00:41] Faith, so she said “Why haven’t you done one on me?”, so I’ve got to do her.

Anybody ever got annoyed with your impersonations of them?


Have they?

But you are quite rude…

I know this guy Avid Merrion who did a show called Bo’ Selecta. Craig David apparently got wound up, but then I hear it was false, he didn’t get wound up and anyway I apologized on behalf of Avid Merrion and now we’re friends. I think we’re friends.

I’m glad that’s sorted now.

We were friends at [inaudible 00:02:50] Cotton’s wedding.

I heard a rumor that Mark Wright got particularly salty about your impersonation about him. Is that true?

I don’t know if he’s salty, but he did say “I know what happened to Craig David and it ain’t gonna happen to me”. So I said to Mark, “Mark, everything that’s happened to you has happened”…


If you married Michelle Keegan, you’ve won the game of life. But I’ve got to say “Wow!” You’re a keeper![crosstalk 00:03:32]

You’re just saying that to butter me up because I’m doing your show next week.

Well, I’ll butter you up now!

In more ways than one…

What ways June? I discovered June.

You did.

She was lost and then I found her in a cupboard eating some bread and she came on to my show and you know what. She didn’t get a [inaudible 00:03:49], she got a [inaudible 00:03:51].

You will find I was on the hill before sweetheart.

I don’t think you was.[crosstalk 00:04:03] A worldly jungle getting a job [inaudible 00:04:06]. [crosstalk 00:04:06] I’m glad you exist in television.

I tell you what, we’ve run out of time for this little bit, but would you like to come on a little bit later on the show?

No chance! Of course I will, because it took me about 3 days to get here, because me driver didn’t turn up, so I’m not going anywhere. Look at me watch to see what time it is, but its run out of juice. [crosstalk 00:04:33]
