Gemma Chan on her boyfriend, Jack Whitehall's jokes

Thursday May 9, 2013

Gemma Chan has revealed she has the final say on any jokes boyfriend Jack Whitehall wants to make about her and their relationship.

The 30-year-old actress - who has starred in Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, Doctor Who, Sherlock and Channel 4 comedy Fresh Meat, where she met Jack - opened up to ES magazine and said it can be hard dating a comedian.

Gemma said: "It's a persona he plays on stage; it's a heightened, exaggerated version of him.

"As a comedian you use your own life but I think people know it's not a literal telling of the truth. You appropriate stories and present them as something that happened to you.

“If he wants to draw on my life, it's on a case-by-case basis. He knows he has to run everything by me first."
