Ver­non stunned by ‘gay’ ver­dict

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TELLY host Ver­non Kay was told by bosses he looked too GAY to be a suc­cess in the States.

Ver­non ( above), 37, donned his best suit for a meet­ing with telly ex­ecs in the U.S.

But he was gut­ted when he was told it made him look like he bat­ted for the other team.

He said: “I wore a stun­ning Sav­ile Row suit for one meet­ing.

“I walked in, quite ner­vous, did the screen test and I got the gig.

“But at the end one ex­ec­u­tive told me, ‘By the way, don’t wear that suit. Ev­ery­one in mid­dle Amer­ica is go­ing to think you’re gay’.”

Ver­non re­vealed he didn’t lis­ten to the pro­ducer and wore the suit any­way.

“In the end I walked on stage wear­ing it and no­body bat­ted an eye­lid.”

He ad­mits he en­joyed his stint in Amer­ica host­ing Skat­ing with the

Stars and wants to do more work State­side.
