Ex-GB News star blasts ‘viewers aren’t stupid’ as he slams Wootton suspension

Patrick Christys Introduces His Show On Gb News

Dan Wootton’s GB News slot has been taken over by his co-star Patrick Christys “until further notice”, according to a statement released by the channel last night.

However, since the news of Dan’s continued suspension, his former co-star Calvin Robinson, who was previously sacked from GB News, has claimed the announcement was “cold”.

Taking to his X account, formerly known as Twitter, Calvin fumed: “To announce ‘Patrick Christys Tonight’ in the 9pm slot before letting Dan know what’s happening is cold.

“Dan has been suspended for what, seven weeks? That’s one hell of an investigation into not challenging a guest strongly enough.

“The viewers are not stupid, even though management seem to think so. Ratings have been dropping consistently and rapidly for the last 6/7 weeks.”

He added: “The people’s channel, with little to no regard for the people… viewers have been wanting to know when their favourite show is returning. Seems it isn’t.

“As for the other newly announced show, pairing Tom and Emily up together shows the direction the channel is heading in.

“Liberal establishment. Just another mainstream media channel. Such a shame. It had so much potential.” (sic)

Express.co.uk has reached out to GB News for comment.

GB News’ announcement was made hours before Patrick’s new show was set to air, as the Head Of Programming Ben Briscoe commented: “Patrick is the ultimate people’s champion for The People’s Channel.
