Keith Lemon is well known as the hilarious persona of comedian Leigh Francis, and the presenter often pushes boundaries with his dirty jokes.

The TV personality recently appeared on Good Morning Britain and was quizzed about having the reputation of “being the naughtiest man on television”.

Despite having a reputation for telling controversial jokes, Keith revealed that he no longer enjoys that part of his character since becoming a father.

He said: “I don’t like it now if I’m honest. I did like it because I was young and I was edgy but now I’m old and a bit tired, especially now. And I’m a bit more pure now because I’ve got children.

“So when you do the school run and parents look at you with filthy eyes like ‘you bad man’ it’s sort of embarrassing.”

Keith has two daughters Matilda, 12 and Dolly, 10 with his wife Jill Carter.

The comedian is relatively private about his personal life, but has spoken of his adoration for his wife.

“She holds it together in the family, Jill is an amazing woman.
