Fun Lovin’ Criminals frontman and BBC 6 Music DJ Huey Morgan has reacted to footage of him storming off the music quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks being broadcast this week.
In an episode which was broadcast on Monday (November 4) on BBC2, the singer smashed a mug next to team captain Phill Jupitus and teammate Laura Whitmore after turning against the programme’s hosts for the evening, hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks.
Morgan appeared annoyed during the ‘next lines’ segment of the show, after being asked to complete lines from songs by his own band. “I just thought you guys might do something different for a change,” he commented.
Now, in his first public statement since the episode was aired, Morgan has responded with good humour. Posting on his official Twitter page, Morgan shared a picture of a cat in a tea cup along with the caption “Oh shit! Huey’s here?” View the tweet here.
Morgan isn’t the first contestant to walk off the gameshow. Ordinary Boys frontman Preston walked off the show in 2007, after host Simon Amstell repeatedly ridiculed his then-wife Chantelle Houghton’s personal life and recently-published autobiography.
