The 54-year-old comedian returns to screens tonight as part of a Stand Up To Cancer special on The Great British Bake Off He will join Nadine Coyle, Ade Adepitan and Anneka Rice to compete to find out top house candy maker Bishop, who has appeared on countless TV shows over the past decade, weighed in on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to leave the cabinet in a brutal speech

The funnyman Liverpudlian is known to take a lighter look at life, but in a discussion of the royal family

He believed that the monarchy should not exist and believed that if a new country was created “there was no way” it would be brought back

Bishop said: “We have a love for the monarchy in this country, which no one can deny because we do

“[But] if you were to create a country now… where we all contribute to our new country, we pay taxes, we vote… there is no way

“There’s no way someone is going, ‘Uh, can we have a royal family? I think it would be a good idea, let’s have a family separate from everyone ”

“So if you created a country you wouldn’t have a monarchy, but we have one here”

He used the rant to explain his thoughts on Meghan and Harry, who left senior roles within the Royal Family a year ago

Bishop explained, “Usually everyone looks at them and says, ‘If that’s what you want to do, that’s fine’ and we have a love for the monarchy”

Her remarks came ahead of Meghan and Harry’s revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey, who some say ‘risked a constitutional crisis’

After their conversation with the US megastar last month, the Queen noted that memories of certain events “may vary” depending on the accounts presented

It has since emerged that several of the couple’s claims may not be 100% true

They have included Meghan’s remark that she and Prince Harry got married three days before their official ceremony at St George’s Chapel in 2018

The Archbishop of Canterbury performed a service but it was not a legally recognized marriage service

Bishop’s remarks about Megxit came before the revelations, during an episode of Channel 4’s The Last Leg With Adam Hills last year

During their short exchange, the presenter explained that he had vowed to keep growing a beard “until Brexit is settled”

Hills described his facial hair as “the Geoff of Byker Grove” – ​​a reference to the teen drama that ran from 1989 to 2006, starring Ant and Dec

The host claimed to have initially received tweets from a number of viewers who were ‘upset’ by Meghan and Harry ‘leaving the country’

He said that has changed since the Byker Grove reveal and some have tweeted: “Now I heard he didn’t know Byker Grove, he could fuck”

Later, the comedian added, “I think for them it absolutely makes sense for them to leave – of course yes, why wouldn’t they?”

Labor MP Jess Phillips, who was also a guest on the show, revealed her husband was less sympathetic to the royal family, contrary to Bishop’s claim

Ms Phillips said: “My husband always said, ‘If you don’t like it’ – when the royals complain about something… – ‘If you don’t like it, go’ ‘

She noted that her husband was not part of the “majority” Bishop claimed to respect the monarchy

However, Ms Phillips explained that in a rare move after Meghan and Harry’s announcement her husband said: ‘Fair play with them you know

He said: “Not everyone likes them, but as a country we could have had a revolution many times
