DAME SHEILA HANCOCK has claimed that Channel 4 gave her the boot from Celebrity Gogglebox.

The outspoken actress left after just one series – surprising fans who had loved her stunned reactions and no-nonsense views alongside pal Gyles Brandreth in the 2019 six-parter.

Sheila told Radio 2: “I loved every minute of it. I got the sack from that actually.

“They didn’t ask me back for some reason, I suppose because I was too rude about some of the things I saw.

“I, honest to God, had not seen most of the programmes they showed us – like all those where everyone was showing off their private parts.

“And I was deeply shocked, quite genuinely overwhelmed by the whole thing.”

Dame Sheila revealed in June that she saved a woman from an assault when the attacker recognised her from TV.

The 89-year-old said there was “a bit of a struggle” before the assailant fled.

Writing in her autobiography Old Rage, she added: “I am far from sure that I would have intervened had he been wielding a gun or knife.

“In the latest type of war, manifesting as terrorism, it is not clear how the power of persuasion can be effective.”
