Laurence Fox suspended by GB News
Chloe Madeley has hit out at Laurence Fox and Dan Wootton following their car crash interview on GB News.
Both Laurence and Dan have been suspended from the channel after the former made a series of misogynistic comments about journalist Ava Evans live on the latter’s show.
Reacting to the moment, Chloe, 36, took to her Instagram Story to slam the pair.
She wrote: “Laurence Fox tho… Dan Wootton tho… free speech lol. F**k off.”(sic)
The fitness fanatic also took aim at presenter Connor Tomlinson, who claimed Ava had said “man-hating remarks” from a previous interview.

Chloe told Connor his views weren’t “remotely valid or important because none of us women would s**g you anyway”, in reference to Laurence’s misogynistic remarks about Ava on the show.
Hitting back, he wrote on his page: “I appreciate my point being proven for me.
“It’s okay to use insult men as sexually undesirable, but never women.
“They don’t care about Laurence being rude, or principles, or consistency.
“This is just looking an excuse to destroy a political enemy. Also: untrue, not to brag.”

On Tuesday night, Laurence called journalist Ava a “little woman” and went on to say: “Show me a single self-respecting man that would like to climb into bed with that woman ever, ever, who wasn’t an incel.”
He continued: “We need powerful, strong amazing women who make great points for themselves.”
Laurence has since re-addressed his comments, telling fans he won’t be apologising and still stuck to his opinion of having his right to “free speech”.
Dan has apologised after he was accused of smirking throughout the exchange.
He told fans he should’ve “intervened immediately to challenge offensive and misogynistic remarks”, adding: “I know I should have done better.”
“I’m devastated that I let down the team and our supportive GBN family.”
GB News has said the comments are “totally unacceptable” and have taken both off air.
Most recently, the channel tweeted: “GB News has suspended Dan Wootton following comments made on his programme by Laurence Fox last night.
“This follows our decision earlier today to formally suspend Mr Fox. We are conducting a full investigation.”
