RYLAN CLARK-NEAL DEFENDS POLITICAL TWITTER POSTS AFTER 'SNOBBY' COMMENTS

He will be co-hosting on Election Night on Channel 4

Rylan Clark-Neal has defended himself against critics who say he should not talk about politics on Twitter, saying that he is informing his followers who "might not necessarily understand Brexit".

The TV presenter said that he received "a few snobby-arsed comments from a few snobby-arsed people who were like, what the f*** do you know?" after he tweeted about the latest political goings-on earlier this year.

Clark-Neal said he feels "no pressure to fit in a box others want to put (him) in", telling The Big Issue magazine: "Politics is something I've been interested in for a long time.

"More now than ever because of Brexit."

The Strictly: It Takes Two presenter, who will co-host Channel 4's Alternative Election Night show, said that, after putting a tweet out earlier this year "that went a little bit viral" on the subject of Brexit, he received negative comments.
