Shane Richie: One In Seven

The EastEnders star, who plays loveable rogue Alfie Moon on the Walford soap, offended several members of reunited band S Club 7 in a lift.

Waiting for people to enter the lift, Shane reportedly said: "Hurry up! Last person in is a gay!"

The three members of S Club 7 who were in the lift - Tina Barrett, Jo O’Meara and Hannah Spearritt - clearly didn't appreciate the quip.

Jon Lee, one of the seven, came out as gay to the Gay Times in 2010. A representative for S Club 7 told BBC bosses they weren't prepared to take part in the CHildren in Need quiz alongside Shane, resulting in him being culled.

The Sun have reported a 'source' close to Shane has confirmed he made the comment, but denied it was meant to be offensive.

The source said: "The comments were clearly meant as a joke."

Daily Express.

Can't believe I'm 'earing this!

It was a joke FFS!

  1. Alfie Moon should've got his 'representative' to issue a statement saying he wouldn't take part in any charity stunt involving outspoken racist Jo O'Meara.
