A TV host has claimed Pamela Anderson stormed off his set after he showed an old photo of her as a child.

Keith Lemon, who hosts Celebrity Juice, said he initially assumed the model’s impromptu departure was triggered by the fact she did not want to take part in a game which involved her sticking chips up her nose.

“She just suddenly picked up her fur stole and stormed off home!” Lemon told The Sun.

“At first I thought it might be because she didn’t want to play a game that involved putting chips up her nose, but it wasn’t, it was because we showed an old school picture of her and she didn’t like it.”

He continued: “She didn’t tell me, but she said to one of the producers, ‘I’m not happy, I have clearance on all my pictures, I’m not happy you showed that.’

“She could’ve just said, ‘Keith I have to go, I’m meeting a friend’, but no, she just stormed without even saying sorry.”

Lemon, whose real name is Leigh Francis, said fellow panellists were “shocked” by the former Playboy model and Baywatch star’s exit but simply laughed and waved as she left.

“There’s so much worse we do to people on Juice so I’m really surprised that’s what made her walk,” he said.

“I might make it a new thing from now on, though, have someone pick up a fur stole and walk off each week.”

He added: “She’s a lovely woman, she’s been on three times, I’m sure I’ll see her again and she’ll explain everything.”

Anderson did not immediately respond to request for comment.
