John Cleese joins GB News for new show as he details why he'd turn down BBC 'Be cancelled'

“It's a free speech channel and I am working with a young fellow, Andrew Doyle, who's a stand-up comic. 

“Well, the nice thing about talking to the GB News audience is that they may not be used to hearing the sort of things I'll be saying.”

Despite two of his most popular shows being homed on the BBC, John added that the broadcaster hasn’t given him the same offer GB News has.
