Al Porter has spoken out for the first time since allegations were made about him.

The comedian left a number of jobs in November after claims were made about him groping a number of men.

He left Today FM, was replaced in the Polly and the Beanstalk by Rory Cowan, and some of his filmed episodes of Blind Date on TV3 did not air.

He has been keeping a low profile since the controversy but has spoken out for the first time in relation to his replacement on Today FM.

Al previously hosted a lunchtime show on the channel, but it was announced this week that Muireann O’Connell would be taking his place.

He explained that there were ‘no hard feelings’ about Muireann stepping in.

“The minute I saw the news I texted Today FM’s station manager Adele Nolan to tell Muireann I think she’ll be great and wish her all the best,” he told The Irish Daily Star.

He added: “I wasn’t asked to resign from any of my jobs. I took that step away myself facing very serious claims made. There are no hard feelings.”

Muireann will host a new two-hour music and listener-driven show, which kicks off on Monday, January 22nd.
