Jack Whitehall Embarrassed As Olivia Colman Insults His Acting On The Graham Norton Show

Oscar winner Olivia Colman unintentionally and hilariously insulted Jack Whitehall's acting on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night (10 December). Watch below:


Whitehall is playing a character called Uncle Casey in the upcoming animation Clifford the Big Red Dog and after a clip of the film was shown to the guests, Colman made a comment about the comedian's American accent.

It's safe to say that Jack was completely embarrassed.


Norton told Whitehall: “This is a breakthrough role for you Jack, because you have an American accent."

“Yes, I was doing an American accent,” replied Whitehall.

To which Colman brutally responded: “What, in that clip?”

“Yes Olivia!” Whitehall shouted, before putting his head in his hands.

He followed up with: “I feel the Oscars buzz fizzling away!”

The comedian then joked about how, instead of sticking to an accent from one specific part of America, he opted to try and use all 50 states in one scene.

As one might expect, social media were absolutely loving the insult and took to social media to voice their opinions.


"OMG, I was laughing so hard at this last night," one wrote.

A second commented: "She’s hilarious. I love Olivia so much."

A third wrote: "I was actually gonna say when I was watching and that clip showed up and I swear Jack was just using his normal accent.

"I was confused as well as Olivia was."

A fourth added: "HAHA only she could be so savage in such a polite manner."

Someone else commented: "She really enjoyed doing that.

"You can see the sparkle in her eye.


"Brilliant comedy."

The synopsis for Jack's new film role reads: "When Emily Elizabeth meets a magical animal rescuer who gives her a little red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant, 10-foot hound in her small New York City apartment.

"With her single mother away on business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle set out on an adventure that takes a bite out of the Big Apple."
