Joel Dommett breaks silence after Christine McGuinness felt ‘bullied’ on his ITV show

Joel Dommett has broken his silence on Christine McGuinness' claims that she felt bullied during an appearance on his comedy panel show, Hey Tracey!.

Real Housewives of Cheshire's Christine alleged in her new memoir, A Beautiful Nightmare, that someone on the show 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."

Now 36 year old Joel has responded to the alleged incident detailed by Christine, which is understood to have occurred during the filming of his show.

"At the end of the day, it is a comedy show. It was made in jest," Joel said.

He added to The Sun: "I don't like anyone to feel like they went away from the show unhappy. No one expressed their concerns to me but I do like to make sure everyone is happy if they are on a show with me.

"I hope she is ok. I am sure she is fine," he continued.

Joel went on to add that he even texted Christine's husband Paddy McGuinness after to tell her that she did "really well" during filming.

Christine didn't mention the name of the show but it was later reported it was Hey Tracey!.

She wrote in the book: "One of the directors came to check on me afterwards. I guess, as much as I tried to hide my devastation, I was mortified. I rang my husband, sobbing. I was so upset."

The mum of three added that her agent and the show's production team agreed the scene in question should not air.

This comes after Christine opened up on the personal reasons she took part in Strictly the Real Full Monty this series, as she shared the heartbreaking memories of cancer in her family and the toll it took on her mum.

Speaking on Monday's instalment of This Morning, she said: "I've had four aunties that have had cancer, one sadly passed away, three of them are doing brilliant.

"And then my mum last year, found a lump during the pandemic. She was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer.

"She had to have the most intense treatment that you can get, and she had to have it on her own during lockdown, so that's why I've done it, for my mum."

Josie Gibson mentioned that she knew Christine's mum helps her "a lot" with her three children, so it must have been a "really stressful" time for her.

"Yeah, she's the best nan ever," the blonde beauty replied. "Honestly, this cancer tore our family apart.

"You know, cancer's cruel. It was just an awful time."
