Keith Lemon has joked about appearing as a guest on his own shows, Through the Keyhole and Celebrity Juice, and admitted that he would never go on the show himself. Chatting about the games played on the comedy panel show on the Jonathan Ross Show, he said: "I don't do the things, the guests do the things. I always say, 'I wouldn't come on this show!' I always get fun out of people… I wouldn't go on Celebrity Juice and I wouldn’t let anyone in my house."

The presenter, whose real name is Leigh Francis, also opened up about how things can go wrong on Through the Keyhole, admitting: "We were in Su Pollard's house and we accidentally set fire to her curtains and that wasn't for the show, it was because we put the lights too close to the curtains then we had to tell her we'd burnt the curtains down. She was a lovely woman. She got some new curtains." He added that he would love to visit Jonathan himself to star on the show, telling him: "A lot of people ask me whose house would I like to do and I always say your name. I like seeing all your magic tricks. You collect such interesting things."

Keith also invited Jonathan to take Holly Willoughby's place on Celebrity Juice, as she will be missing four episodes while in Australia filming I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! He asked the host: "What are you doing on Wednesdays? We could put a wig on you?" Keith spoke to Holly about her stint in the jungle on This Morning earlier this week, asking her: "Are you getting paid the same as Dec? Equal rights and stuff!" Laughing, the presenter replied: "Oh god, instant sweat. I don't know. I don't know. I should hope so."
