Steve Royle’s Rishi Sunak joke

The variety performer took a swipe at Chancellor Rishi Sunak, following his suggestion that workers from the hardest hit industries during the coronavirus pandemic should retrain for a new profession.

He joked, sparking howls of laughter from the judges: “Can I just say, if Rishi Sunak the chancellor is watching this… some of us can’t possibly be retrained!

“This is what I do. It’s comedy, isn’t it!”
