GB News suspends THIRD presenter Calvin Robinson for defending Dan Wootton over Laurence Fox row | The Sun

GB NEWS has suspended a THIRD presenter for defending Dan Wootton over the Laurence Fox row.

Reverend Calvin Robinson told Twitter followers on Friday: "I have been suspended from GB News."

He previously said he would not appear on Dan Wootton's show without the suspended presenter, saying: "If he falls, we all fall."

Wootton and actor-turned-politician Fox were suspended from the channel on Wednesday after Fox made a series of remarks about journalist Ava Evans.

He said of the political correspondent "who would want to shag that?" during a discussion on Dan Wootton Tonight on Tuesday.

Ofcom have since launched a probe after receiving around 7,300 complaints over the episode.

On Friday morning, GB News boss Angelos Frangopoulos apologised to Ms Evans for the comments, stating they "should not have gone to air".

He said Fox should have been "properly challenged" by Wootton.

Wootton and Fox have since apologised and GB News is undertaking an internal investigation.

Addressing the row on X, formerly known as Twitter, Rev Robinson earlier wrote: "I will not be appearing on Dan Wootton Tonight without Dan Wootton.

"Dan Wootton had a significant part to play in building GB News.

"He invited me along pre-launch, he also brought so many people onboard. Behind the cameras as well as on-screen talent.

"Including the careerist ambitious ones who are currently gunning for his job.

"These people are worse than the woke mob, because these vultures are giving the mob ammunition and essentially escalating the channel's demise."

MailOnline announced on Thursday that it had terminated its contract with Wootton, who was a columnist for the site.

GB News has been approached for comment.
