Ed Balls forced to apologise

Susanna first said: “We do love Danny Dyer on this programme. He caused quite a stir didn’t he when he was talking about Brexit.”

Ed then asked: “I was here, he used the T word, are we allowed to say that this early?,” to which Susanna replied: “No we can’t! It’s on the Ofcom list.”

I apologise, then, I didn’t mean to say that.

However, Ed then added: “So you can’t say [bleep] then? Just checking!,” resulting in Susanna saying: “You do know we are on air don’t you?”

“I apologise, then, I didn’t mean to say that,” Ed replied. “I am sorry I didn’t know.”

Ed Balls speaks about his stammer

Speaking on GMB, Ed recently opened up about his stammer and its impact on his work.

He said: “I didn’t think that you could have therapy if you’re a politician, and certainly not admit to it. But I did when I was a cabinet minister.

“And actually, all the advice was you have to go and talk about it publicly because that is the thing that will make the difference and that is true, but I don’t think I believed that.”
