It was Channel 5 that kicked Lewis out. The producers fought for him to stay.Removed a couple of pages of posts - the phrase "don't feed the trolls" seems appropriate here. It's means you only have to scroll past the post talking absolute rubbish rather than scan through pages of posts refering to it.
As for punishment - well, you're watching BBUK on C5 - that's punishment enough!
Pissed off producers have removed Lewis - no coincidence it happened a couple of days after C5 only gave them a 75 minute slot for the final so they need to get numbers down, and yet again they've done it without giving the reason leaving him open to all sorts of accusations rather than just giving the facts. Most of all though it's robbed me of £500 - got him at ridiculously long odds in the first week and by all accounts was set to make a decent payback on him.
