ITV Bans Clary from Innuendo

Julian Clary has been banned by ITV bosses from making what he termed, “saucy innuendo” on Your Face Sounds Familiar. It’s not surprising because ITV is very concerned that it doesn’t offend family audiences at the time the show is running.  It’s always good to see a major broadcasting company doing its best to follow rules that are meant to keep our society respectable.


Julian Clary has admitted he made TV executives nervous when he joined the judging panel of Your Face Sounds Familiar.

The comic told The Sun he was banned from making saucy innuendos by the ITV celebrity singing contest’s bosses in case he offended the family audience.

He said: “It’s rather daring of them to hire me. I understand the executive nervousness. They were wandering around in the first week telling me I can’t say any innuendos whatsoever.

“I said that the whole point of a double meaning is that for those that are easily offended, it can mean another thing. It’s all calming down now. I do have that sort of reputation – that I could say something frightful and frighten the horses. But I don’t intend to. The fear in their eyes is diminishing week by week.”

Julian, 54, said he’d love to take part as a contestant in the show and thinks the format is great.

He said: “I’d like to be someone from Status Quo and sing Down Down. It gets more bizarre each week. I really love the end of the show when we learn who is doing what next week.”

The judge said he’d love to take on a chat show for his next project.

So ITV has banned Clary from making innuendo on Your Face Sounds Familiar.  A judge position carries a certain amount of responsibility to it, would you agree? Or would you rather have the show moved down to a later time period when Clary can say what he wants?
