Graham Norton Snubs Home Credit

Following Debt on our Doorstep's intervention, TV presenter Graham Norton has confirmed that he will refuse to make an award to home credit lenders at tomorrow's Credit Today Magazine Awards Ceremony, due to take place in London's Grosvenor Hotel.

Today Graham's agent, Dylan Hearn, said that having been made aware of the issues, Norton did not wish to be associated with such an award - although he will continue to host the overall event.

Damon Gibbons, Chair of Debt on our Doorstep said: "We're delighted that Graham has agreed to sit out that part of the ceremony, and send out such a message. These lenders crave recognition as part of the mainstream credit industry but they only further reduce the incomes of low income borrowers. They cannot be part of the solution to poverty in the U.K."
