He said: "No support about what? What do you need support for?

""What the f**k do you need support for on f****g Gogglebox for f**ks sake."

Shaun continued: "There is really nothing to be supported for is there.

"You f****g turn on the telly and watch f****g five minutes of something and have a laugh. It’s f****g not dramatic is it?"

Paige announced her decision to quit the show on the day the new season was set to premiere on September 17.

The 25-year-old tweeted : "I have made the decision to walk away from Gogglebox.

She continued: "It’s been an experience but one I cannot continue with due to long hours of filming, restrictiveness, control of our actions and opinions & zero aftercare support but hey who cares about ex cast, their NTA winners".

In response to Paige's accusations, a Channel 4 spokesperson said: “The welfare of contributors – past and present – is of paramount importance and robust protocols are in place to support contributors before, during and after taking part in the series.”

Shaun is currently promoting his new book, How To Be a RockStar, that was released on October 7.
