Roman Kemp apologises for posting offensive tweets ahead of I’m A Celeb stint

The radio host wants to clear his name before entering the jungle


Roman Kemp has apologised for posting offensive tweets in the past, ahead of his stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The radio DJ trawled through his Twitter account to see if he had ever “posted anything that could cause harm or offence to someone”.

Back in 2017, Jack Maynard was famously kicked off I’m A Celeb after old racist and homophobic social media posts he shared resurfaced online.

Speaking candidly on his Instagram Story, Roman said: “Being totally honest, I’m shocked and appalled and ashamed to say I did find things.”

“I did find things I’m not at all proud of. I don’t associate myself with that. I know the person who wrote those things is not the man I am now, but they were there.”

“I made the conscious decision to get those things, I have deleted those things, I don’t want that negativity in the world,” he explained.

“I don’t want the legacy I have on the internet to be a place where there is negativity, or something that can cause offence.

“For anyone that has ever been offended by something I have said online, I am truly, deeply and utterly sorry.”

“Going forward, I want to be that good social media user that spreads happiness about humans, not negativity. I hope that you watching this want to do the same. Together, let’s make the internet a bit of a better place,” he added.

According to The Sun, Roman has signed up for this year’s series of I’m A Celeb, which returns on November 17.

The presenter will reportedly join the likes of Caitlyn Jenner, Nadine Coyle, and Kate Garraway.
