Whitehall caught snorting coke

News Of The World shames comic

Jack Whitehall's growing TV career is in jeopardy after the News Of The World pictured him snorting a line of cocaine.

The 21-year-old was photographed taking the Class A drug in a busy street outside a nightclub in Manchester, where he was attending the indie music festival Parklife.

Earlier on Friday night he had watched England’s World Cup draw, and was still wearing a team shirt as he used a rolled-up £20 note to snort the coke from a BlackBerry balanced on his knee.

The picture comes in the week he starts a regular stint on new Channel 4 show Stand Up For The Week. However, the News Of The World says the broadcaster will stick by him after he issued an apology.

Whitehall told the newspaper: ‘My behaviour recently has not been up to the standard of what those who know me well would expect.

‘I know I have let myself and my family down. I am committed to putting it right, and I hope people will not pass judgment on me too readily in the meantime.’
