Laurence Fox latest: GB News boss “horrified” by sexist comments as former actor faces axe

The chief executive of GB News says he was “appalled” by comments made by Laurence Fox on Dan Wootton’s show.

In his first interview since the incident, Angelos Frangopoulos told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the broadcaster has a “process to follow”, but expects the internal investigation to be “resolved very quickly”.

The former Sky News Australia chief executive added: “I was appalled by those comments they are not in keeping with the values with us as a business and obviously we took action immediately.

“…I was horrified by what was said….that comment should not have gone to air.”

On Thursday night, Fox admitted he expects GB News bosses to sack him and Dan Wootton on Friday morning.

After more than 48 hours of public uproar over his offensive, sexist comments to female journalist Ava Evans, he finally issued an apology to her, admitting he had been “demeaning” towards her.

Both Fox and Wootton, who could be heard laughing during the segment, were suspended by GB News amid an internal investigation and a probe by regulator Ofcom, who received around 7,300 complaints about the episode.
