Keith Lemon: Beavers, Celebrity Juice and how Hugh Jackman inspired him

10 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Keith Lemon is a very busy man at the moment - but somehow he still managed to find the time to write not one, but two books! Not only has he released his childhood memoir Little Keith Lemon, but he's also penned a safe-for-little-ones kids' book, The Beaver and the Elephant. To celebrate, we caught up with Keith ("I look worse than Kelly Brook in the morning," he complained) to chat about his books (and how Hugh Jackman inspired them), his new sketch show, why he regrets choosing a beaver for his book, Celebrity Juice and much, much, much more...

1. Keith on... why he wanted to write a childhood memoir

"Well, it's a prequel to the last book I did called Being Keith which is more about the TV years. This one's more about growing up in Leeds rather than telly gossip, whereas the last one was telly gossip. This »

30 August 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Keith Lemon has admitted that he would like Simon Cowell's house to feature on Through the Keyhole.

The second series kicks off tonight (August 30) with panel guests including Alan Carr, Ruth Langsford and Jonathan Ross.

"I'm blowing my own trumpet, but I think this series is better than the last," Lemon told Press Association. "We went to Los Angeles to do a few houses – they were really Hollywood-style houses."

However, Lemon said that there is still one person whose home he wants to visit on the show. "Simon Cowell's would be amazing. We come on straight after The X Factor, so it would be great to do an X Factor Through The Keyhole special."

Meanwhile, the Celebrity Juice star revealed that his revamped version had received the seal of approval by previous host Loyd Grossman, who had attended a studio recording.

Through the Keyhole with Keith Lemon: Black toilet paper and breakages

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's not just The X Factor that's back tonight - if you stick around afterwards, you'll get to watch Keith Lemon snooping his way through a bunch of celebrities' houses in a brand new series of Through The Keyhole. We caught up with Keith recently to find out what we can expect - and it involves black toilet paper, angry celebrities and much, much more...

Keith reckons the second series is better than the first.

"I think this series is better than last series because I was just finding my feet in the first one, and this one I know where they are, they're on the end of my legs. But it's quite loosey goosey, this one. I said, get rid of the autocue because I feel like I'm not doing anything if I'm just reading. So we got rid of the autocue and it has more of a Celebrity Juice flavour to it, »
