Lemon: People will start hating me

Leigh Francis (aka Keith Lemon) fears viewers will get sick of him

Keith Lemon has expressed fears over his looming "shelf life".

The revelations came shortly before the launch of Through The Keyhole, a revamp of the TV classic in which Keith will play host alongside a panel of famous names.

The comedian told The Sun: "I've only got a year left until everyone starts hating me.

"People will be saying you're on telly too much like Holly and Davina, Or Phillip Schofield. You get those tweets from people going 'you're always on telly'"

But the TV funnyman hit back at potential critics of his upcoming stint as host, explaining "It's cos it's me job and it's going well. If it's something good, I want to do it."

Through The Keyhole, which starts on Saturday at 9.20pm on ITV, will feature stars such as Jonathan Ross, Cilla Black and Emma Bunton. Lemon has revealed some of the items he stumbled across during filming included a stripper's pole, a samurai sword and several gold animals.
