Keith Lemon on The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and Through The Keyhole

Keith gives us the lowdown on this weekend’s TV

by Ellie Henman |

Keith Lemon returns to our TV screens tomorrow evening with Through The Keyhole – the amazing show where he goes and noses around celebrity houses. But he thinks ITV are on to something, as his show starts directly after The X Factor.

Chatting with our lovely Jo Parkerson, Keith revealed how much he loved The X Factor but admitted he has a bit of trouble with Simon Cowell.

“What’s funny about Simon, I always thought he didn’t like me,” Keith explained. “Every time he see’s me he says ‘it’s nice to meet you’ but we’ve met loads of times.”

Luckily, Keith revealed Simon did finally remember his face and even invited him backstage to have a drink in his dressing room. Jammy.

Jo also quizzed Keith on what he though of this year’s* Strictly Come Dancing* line up and, we think it’s fair to say, he’s not that impressed.

“Peter Andre – that’s good, Kirsty Gallacher – that’s good, the end.”

Fair enough, Keith.
