He said: ‘I have had people who had “you are the only gay in the village” said to them and to us it was meant to be a celebration.’ 

‘But people were labelled “the only gay in the village” at school. It was meant as entertainment, not to make young gay people sad.’

He went on: ‘I remember thinking there was a greediness to Little Britain and we just wanted to show off as many characters as possible so we played black, white, straight, gay, male, female, tall, short, whatever.

‘I am much more sympatico with contemporary approach so I would not play characters of other races now.

‘I would say if anyone is listening and is offended, I would happily discuss anything, individual cases.’
