What did Eamonn Holmes say about cancel culture?

He said: “It’s a minefield, it’s a total worry all the time. I don’t wake up in the morning and say: ‘I’m going to say something ­offensive to somebody.’

“I know I’m the most tolerant, caring, open-minded person but that doesn’t stop me saying that something is wrong or right, or having a joke.

“But there are people who wake up wanting to be offended. They literally want you sacked. You said this banned word,” Eamonn said.

Woke culture controls TV, Eamonn claims

Eamonn – who regularly presents with wife Ruth Langsford – also claimed that woke culture controls broadcasters because of advertising revenue.

He added that “they” have a “very strong ­influence” and broadcasters “jump” when advertisers are “annoyed”.

The Irish star also said that he admires Piers Morgan for taking a stand against snowflake culture.

He added: “I do think we need him to stand up to woke. I’m not saying I agree with ­everything he says, but I think that everybody just rolls over for woke.”

Eamonn – who hosts new BBC show Farm To Feast – also claimed British TV is full of “patronising posh blokes.”

He called them “the Oxbridge lot” and said they’re “so awful”.
