Calvin Robinson has become the third GB News presenter to be suspended from the channel following comments made by Laurence Fox on air.

This development comes after channel executive Angelos Frangopoulos stated that Fox had exceeded the bounds of acceptability with his “appalling” remarks about journalist Ava Evans on GB News. The actor-turned-political-activist, Fox, made a series of comments about Ms. Evans, a journalist for the PoliticsJOE website, including asking show host Dan Wootton, “Who would want to shag that?” Both Fox and Wootton were suspended by GB News pending an internal inquiry and an investigation by the broadcast regulator Ofcom, which received approximately 7,300 complaints.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Robinson stated, “I have been suspended from GB News.” This followed an earlier post expressing support for Wootton and declaring that he would not appear on “Dan Wootton Tonight” without his suspended colleague. Robinson also criticised “careerist ambitious” colleagues who are actively seeking his job, branding them as worse than the woke mob, as they were providing ammunition to the mob and essentially accelerating the channel’s decline.

Previously, Mr. Frangopoulos stated that Fox’s broadcast “should not have happened” and issued a personal apology to the political correspondent at the center of the controversy. Both Wootton and Fox have since apologised for the incident, with Fox acknowledging that his comments were “demeaning” and “not representative of who I am.” He also anticipated being dismissed by GB News over the incident. Additionally, Wootton’s MailOnline column was terminated due to the controversy. His regular column had initially been suspended in August while the publication investigated allegations that he had used a pseudonym and offered colleagues money for explicit content.

In an interview with the BBC, Mr. Frangopoulos stated that GB News had a “process to follow” but expected the internal investigation to be concluded promptly. The former head of Sky News Australia also expressed his dismay at the comments, emphasising that they did not align with the company’s values and its commitment to appropriate discourse in the media. He stressed that while GB News championed free speech, it should be conducted in a respectful manner.

Mr. Frangopoulos further noted that Laurence Fox had a tendency to push boundaries, but his recent comments had crossed the line of acceptability. He indicated that GB News was scrutinising the production process of the programme, the handling of the interview, and the comments themselves, all of which were deemed appalling.
