Toasted TV presenter Ollie McCormack has apologised for a social media comment with a derisive comment directed at Ian Thorpe and model Ryan Channing.
“I wish I was thirsty, desperate and hookerish enough to date Thorpie,” he wrote.
A spokesperson for TEN told News Corp: “The comments made by Ollie McCormack are inappropriate and these have been removed. Network TEN has discussed this with Ollie.”
McCormack has since apologised. “There is no excuse for my behaviour and I am sorry,” he said.
News Corp speculates that McCormack and Channing know one another.
Toasted TV is ELEVEN’s morning brand with cartoons & kid’s titles airing at 6am.
