Rick Edwards slams Sinitta

Rick Edwards has responded to Sinitta and defended his new ITV2 show, Safeword. The So Macho singer previously hit out at the new programme and called it "vile".

The Mirror, 23rd July 2015

Controversial new series in which celebrities have their social media accounts scrutinised for embarrassing facts, before being humiliated until they use their safe word. Rick Edwards hosts and Katherine Ryan and David Morgan are among the comedians who roast. The first victims are lovable loon Joey Essex and boxer David Haye, who go in for a verbal joust. It's the show that Sinitta called "vile" and she may be on to something as Joey's Twitter account is hacked to make a spoof announcement that he's going to be a dad. Cheap lolz.
