Bradford-born presenter Natalia Kills and her husband Willy Moon took to Twitter last night to issue statements following comments they made to contestant Joe Irvine during a live programme.

Last night, Natalia wrote on Twitter: “At last! I am relieved that I’m finally able to break the silence… xoxo”.

Attached was a personal image that read: “A lot goes on behind-the-scenes of a reality show and what you see isn’t always the whole story. The show brought me on to bring my passion, dramatic expression and perspective. I was encouraged to be outspoken and things out of hand. Joe, I hope you can forgive me and I wish you all the best! Be natural, unconventional and be you!”.

Natalia’s husband, Willy Moon, also issued a similar message on his Twitter account.

It read: “The reality of “reality” TV that there’s a lot the viewer doesn’t see. The show encourages judges to be forthright and highly opinionated. It went too far and I never intended to single anyone out. I wish the contestants, crew, and particularly Joe, all the best.”

Two new judges are taking over their positions.
