Jack Whitehall expects 'vitriol'

Jack Whitehall has said he's already prepared himself for a backlash following his rise to fame.

The 23-year-old comedian and Fresh Meat star says viewers will soon tire of him.

"I know I do too much, I guess," he said.

"I'm very conscious of the fact that I'm due what people will call a backlash, some real vitriol.

"It will happen eventually, so I just need to make the best of it."

Jack, who recently performed at the Secret Policeman's Ball in New York, said: "I know John Bishop and James Corden well, and I've seen their progression and the bumps they've had along the journey, which has been helpful."

The privately-educated comic, who plays undergraduate JP in the sitcom Fresh Meat, added: "People seem to find it a horrible thing, that I'm posh. And it's annoying, because there is nothing I can do about it."
