COMEDIAN Sean Walsh has spoken in the I'm A Celebrity jungle about a huge blunder which saw him end up in Hereford.

During Wednesday night's episode of the popular ITV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! England footballer Jill Scott, who was part of the side that won the UEFA Women's Euro 2022, had a question for comedian Seann Walsh.

While sitting in the camp in the Australian jungle, she wanted to know if he had ever missed one of his own shows.


And that's when Walsh, 36, shocked campmates when he told of a blunder in 2014 which saw him end up in Hereford.

The comedian, who appeared on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, said he had stepped out of a taxi, looked at the venue and saw it was closed.

That's when the comedian, who has also appeared on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats, realised he had arrived in Hereford when he was supposed to be in Hertford!

Matters were made worse by the fact he was cutting it fine time-wise.

It meant he was more than 140 miles away from the town to the north of London where he was meant to be performing.

It left campmates Charlene White, an ITV News presenter, and former professional footballer Scott in laughter.

Appearing to be shocked after Walsh's revelation, Scott said that it was "mad" and she had never turned up to the wrong stadium for a game.


The gig in Hertford had to be cancelled, and Walsh tweeted at the time: "Hertford! I regret to inform you that tonight's show is cancelled due to me arriving at Hereford, near Wales.

"I am so sorry, please feel free to tweet me abuse."

He added: "It is now taking me over four hours to get home. The gig was 45 mins away. I deserve this," before adding: "If it makes you feel any better my train home is cancelled."

Comedian Seann Walsh admits he nearly turned down an offer to take part in this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! because he was scared about what people would think of him. But he says his partner, Grace, made him realise going on the hit ITV programme would finally be a chance to show viewers what he is like.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here can be watched on ITV X.
