David Gest has slammed ITV over allegations he was fired, claiming he quit the channel to concentrate on other projects.
Liza Minnelli’s ex-husband signed a one-year contract with ITV after impressing producers with his appearance on British reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here last year.
Earlier this month Gest was reportedly dropped after The David Gest Show and Grease Is The Word struggled to attract viewers – but the star claims he severed ties with ITV due to other work commitments.
“My lawyers negotiated an early release so I could host The Friday Night Project on Channel Four,” he says.
