Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Jim Davidson Life Story Interview – Homophobic?……
Jim Davidson is one of Belfield’s favourite comics. He might not be PC but in the 90’s he was one of the biggest Stars in the UK.
Davidson was the biggest name at the BBC in the late 80’s and 90’s. He was the Star of ‘Big Break’ and ‘Jim’s Generation Game’.
Since leaving prime-time TV he’s focused on touring his Live show across the UK. He also moved to Dubai in 2005. He told Belfield “I want to be a foreigner in someone else’s country”.
In 2007 Jim appeared on Hell’s Kitchen @ ITV. Jim made front page news after making alleged ‘homophobic’ comments on about Brian Dowling.
Was it clever editing or homophobia….here’s Jim’s story, you decide:
In May 2010, Davidson was found guilty at Newton Abbot magistrates’ court of a driving offence.
On 2 January 2013, as Davidson was set to become a housemate in the elveventh series of Celebrity Big Brother, he was arrested at Heathrow Airport by police officers working on Operation Yewtree.
On 20 March, he was arrested again over new allegations of sexual offenses. On 21 August, however, it was announced that no further action would be taken in relation to the allegations of historic sex abuse, due to insufficient evidence.
In March 2004, Davidson, a self-professed Conservative, publicly left the United Kingdom for the tax-free haven of Dubai in protest at the Labour government. At the time, he declared that “I may as well go to Dubai and be an ethnic minority there than wait five years till I become one here.” He moved back to the UK after living in Dubai for five years.
Davidson is a supporter of Charlton Athletic, the local club in the area where he grew up.Formerly, in the 1980s, he was formerly a Director at AFC Bournemouth.
