Keith Lemon and his career
Keith is recognized for his show Celebrity Juice which he started in 2008. But he was tempted to quit when his close friend Fearne Cotton had stepped down from it. He revealed that he, Fearne, and Holly had earlier decided that they would all leave the show together. Keith disclosed:
“Initially I said, ‘That’s it, I’m leaving too. It’s been ten years and Holly, Fearne and I don’t see each other all the time, but we’re a close group of mates. Ages ago we said to each other if one goes, we all go. After I found out Fearne was leaving, I went to bed and slept on it and woke up the next day thinking that I can’t leave the show because I still enjoy it so much.”
“I thought, ‘If Holly leaves because Fearne is then that really is the end, I’m not doing it without them both’. But then I spoke to Holly and the first thing she said was, ‘Who are we going to get then?’ I said, ‘So you’re still up for it then?’ and she said, ‘Of course!’ She did say she thought she would be the first to leave though. I thought so too!”
But he has also worked as a caricaturist in the past. He is also famous for Bo’ Selecta on channel 4.
