An actor on English soap opera Eastenders was reportedly cut from a quiz segment on the BBC telethon ‘Children In Need’ following a gay joke, according to Yahoo!

Shane RitchieShane Ritchie is alleged to have said “Hurry up! Last person in is gay” while he and members of reformed 90s pop band S Club 7 were trying to fit into an elevator together.

S Club 7 band member Jon Lee came out in 2010.

Following the remark, three members of the band are thought to have refused to appear alongside Ritchie.
