She has hit out at the line of questioning (Picture: Getty/ITV)Katherine Ryan has hit back at sexist comments and questions around whether she will be cancelling her upcoming tour now that she’s pregnant.
The acclaimed comedian reveals she got a mix of nice and unpleasant messages but wasn’t going to sit back and watch the sexist narrative continue.
Addressing the situation on an Instagram Stories, Katherine told her followers: ‘I’m just gonna let that sexism wash over me. I’m not gonna let it affect my zen. No, I’m not cancelling my tour.
‘I’ve received a lot of really touching nice messages and a lot of rude messages and a lot of messages – A LOT of messages – asking if I’m gonna cancel my tour. No I’m not cancelling my tour.’
She added in her witty way: ‘Your dad is cancelling his tour.’
Katherine is expecting her second child after reuniting with her sweetheart Bobby after 20 years apart.
She told MailOnline: ‘I loved him so much – I still have all of our letters that we wrote to each other when we were 15/16 and I had them made into a blanket for our one-year anniversary because I’m such a nerd.
‘But then I was glad that we weren’t together for 20 years as well because I went off and I did all of these interesting things and he went off and did all these interesting things.
‘I don’t think most men are really ready to be married until they’ve been divorced. I never really wanted to get married, it’s when I became totally satisfied with the idea of being alone that he magically walked into my life.
‘I did everything I could not to marry him. I thought, this is not my plan but when it’s meant to be it’s just so easy and I wish I had known that all along.’
