STARSTRUCK judge Jason Manford sparked uproar on the show last night – with a dig at Prince Harry.
The comedian prompted gasps from his co-stars Sheridan Smith and Beverley Knight after they watched three Harry Styles impersonators perform.
Jason, 40, told them: “Wow. Three Harrys – it’s like the royal family’s worst nightmare.”
Beverley was seen with her mouth open in shock while Sheridan, also 40, told him off, yelling: “You can’t say that.”
Starstruck host Olly Murs was seen silently laughing at the side of the stage beside the contestants.
The quip was a reference to the headaches the Prince is thought to have caused the Royals since stepping down as one.
Harry moved to California with wife Meghan and their children, buying a nine-bed, 13-bathroom home for around £11.5million in 2020.
This week it emerged Harry would not be returning to the UK to attend his grandfather Prince Phillip‘s memorial service.
Senior aides revealed that Her Majesty was informed of his snub a quarter of an hour before his statement about Prince Philip’s service was issued.
It read: “The Duke will not be returning to the UK in late March, but hopes to visit his grandmother as soon as possible.”
