Former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Danny Baker is facing calls to be sacked from BBC Radio 5 after sharing a vile image following the birth Meghan Markle  and Prince Harry’s son Archie. 

The presenter, 61, has apologised after sharing an image a monkey in a suit outside hospital after the Duke and Duchess Sussex welcome their first child together earlier this week.

The image shows a man standing alongside a woman who is holding hands with a monkey. Danny captioned the image: “Royal baby leaves hospital.”

A second added: “Incredibly fensive. This is disgusting.”

The comedy writer then issued an apology, which read: “Sorry my gag pic the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up.
