Journalist Ava Evans responds to Laurence Fox’s ‘vile’ GB News rant

Journalist Ava Evans said she is “speechless” and “hurt” as she responded to Laurence Fox’s “vile” rant.

GB News has suspended Fox following his comments about Evans, in a segment broadcast during Dan Wootton’s show on Tuesday night (26 September).

“I’m a bit speechless, I don’t really know what to say, to be honest,” Evans said, speaking on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show.

“I’m really hurt by it, I’m shocked that it went out. This is the sort of talk that you worry that men have about you when you’re not in the room.

“There’s always a worry in the back of your mind.”

Scottish National Party leader Stephen Flynn urged Ofcom to “step up” as he slammed Wootton and Fox over the “vile” discussion, as other media and political figures shared their support for Evans.
