Will Young thanks Spencer Matthews for ‘respectful’ response after ‘offensive’ gay joke
Will Young has thanked Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews for reaching out to him after making an “offensive” gay joke on a BBC One show.
The singer, 42, slammed Matthews for a remark he made on BBC gameshow This Is My House, which sees celebrities guess which one of four contenders owns the house they’re being shown around.
As panellists debated which of the potential homeowners uses the most hairspray, Matthews quipped: “Who’s the least gay?”
Watching the show on Sunday night (18 April) Will Young immediately took to Instagram to slam Spencer Matthews for “reaffirming offensive and harmful stereotypes” about gay people.
While Young said that while the BBC has yet to respond to his concerns, Matthews has.
Though he did not go into any detail about the message,
