In public, Keith is known by his alter-ego Keith Lemon. But he has previously revealed that he was convinced by Jill to collect the Best Digital Programme award for Celebrity Juice as himself.

"I promised her Keith wouldn't be there so we could just have a bit of time on our own being normal," he told The Sun. "You can tell it's me instead of Keith because I've got my hair tied back into a tiny bun." He added: "My executive producer, Leon Wilson, said it feels like I'm coming out! But I won't be doing it again. I don't want anyone to know who I really am – I prefer being Keith. Everyone goes a bit weird when it's just me."
