Hound hinted that he didn't consider himself as funny as others who had appeared on the show, and was looking for a different project.

"I've never had a cross word with Leigh," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"But if you can't play as part of a team, you shouldn't be there. I think how hard people laugh at Terry Alderton, Michael McIntyre and Milton Jones and I'm aware of how far I am from that."

He added: "Funny is funny. And if the act makes you laugh, they've earned the money. But I lost my way and needed to do something I could find more joy in."

Hound will next be seen on stage in Utopia at the Soho Theatre in London.

He recently described Digital Spy forum users as "f**king morons".
