Everyone's favourite Chaser, Anne Hegerty, has revealed she was nearly suspended by ITV bosses after sharing an expletive-filled post on Twitter.

During an appearance on Lorraine with Christine Lampard – who was filling in for Lorraine Kelly – the 60-year-old opened up about the threat.

"I tweeted a tweet last month, it got 25,000 likes, before ITV ordered me to take it down and threatened me with suspension," Anne said.

She continued: "So I took it down. Sometimes you don’t always know what’s appropriate or what people will find appropriate or not."

"One is not actually trying to upset the source of one’s bread and butter."

The tweet in question was in response to someone telling Anne's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! co-star Emily Atack she wasn't' "pretty enough" to be playing Blondie icon Debbie Harry in the Sky Arts show Urban Myths.

 

During the appearance, Anne also discussed her active battle against online trolls.

"I will answer back. I have been known to get in trouble for doing that," she said.
