Dan Wootton has been suspended from GB News following comments made on his show by Laurence Fox, who asked what "self-respecting man" would "climb into bed" with female reporter Ava Evans.

Earlier, the broadcaster announced it suspended Fox over his comments during a live show about PoliticsJOE's Evans.

GB News also said it was conducting a full investigation.

It added: "GB News has suspended Dan Wootton following comments made on his programme by Laurence Fox last night."

The news channel distanced itself from Fox's comments shortly after they were broadcast, with a statement describing the remarks as "totally unacceptable".

Before his suspension, Wootton had apologised for the remarks saying he "regretted" the interview.
