Jim Davidson has slammed Netflix and claims his new streaming service is for people "who want to laugh like they used to".

Mr Davidson launched the Ustreme service and claims to have signed up 10,000 subscribers in the first year.

This comes as Netflix reveal they lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, while also warning that a further two million customers were expected to leave during the second three months of the year.

Speaking on Dan Wootton Tonight, Mr Davidson said: "People are getting sick of it and it’s people listening to what you say make them think hang on, we’re being duped here, we’re being taken down the river by people saying you can’t do this, you can’t do that.

"And Netflix scratch their heads and wonder why they’re losing hundreds and hundreds of thousands of subscribers because they’re piling stuff on hoping there is something for everybody.

"My channel is something for the people I know, who want to laugh like they used to and it’s great.

"Year one we’ve had 10,000 subscribers through the door, we’ve signed up Jethro’s old stuff, Freddie Starr’s old stuff, all the things that we used to laugh at.

"But you don’t have to laugh at them behind closed doors, you don’t have to say here I’ve got a little something under the counter for you my son, here’s Chubby Brown. No that’s all gone."

Mr Davidson told GB News earlier this month that he’s looking forward to watching women footballers lift their tops up in celebration.

Mr Davidson made the comments during a debate on Dan Wootton Tonight regarding whether Northern Ireland women’s manager Kenny Shiels was right to be criticised for saying "women are more emotional than men" after his team lost 5-0 to England earlier this week.

During the conversation, comedian and actor Mr Davidson said: “This is woke creeping in everywhere, let them girls get on. They’ve just been hammered 5-0.

“Talking of emotions, when someone scores a goal these guys run round like headless chickens and they whip their shirt off.

“Well, I’m looking forward to seeing that in women’s football to tell you the truth.”

The comments were slammed by journalist Ella Whelan.

Ms Whelan said: “My fellow panellists have been joking about women lifting their tops which isn’t very funny."
