Jack Whitehall’s parents have hinted at the comedian being a casanova in his younger years while chatting in their latest podcast.
Hilary and Michael Whitehall discussed some hilarious anecdotes from their eldest son, now 34 on their The Wittering Podcast.
His mother admitted to sneaking ‘a lot of girls’ out the house for Jack – and also divulged that some of the very girls he brought back home years ago are now ‘quite well known’.

Speaking to her husband, Hilary begins by saying: ‘Right. Let’s cut to the chase of activities at home that took place under your roof.
‘I remember one particular occasion when you walked into Jack’s room of a morning, right?
‘When I say ‘walked’, probably threw the door open. He relays the story himself; you would always wander in with a paper to read him something.
‘On this particular occasion, you barged into his room, drew the curtains and said “Corbyn’s back” and you then proceeded to read an article about Jeremy Corbyn.’

Michael quips: ‘Yeah, that was when Jeremy Corbyn got in as leader of the Labour Party. Which was absolutely -‘, Hilary cuts him off: ‘This is a politics free zone.’
‘Anyway, you actually said “Livingston’s back”. Now that slightly dates it and I don’t mean David Livingstone, I mean Ken Livingstone.
‘You actually went in and said, “Livingston’s back”, and you said, “let me read you this article”.
‘What you didn’t know was that, besides Jack, who pulled the duvet over her head, was a young lady.
‘So, she then had to listen to this diatribe about Ken Livingstone from you, with the duvet over her head, probably suffocating.’
Divulging: Hilary told The Wittering Podcast about a time when Michael (pictured together in July 2021) had gone into Jack’s room to speak about politics – but there was a girl under the covers without his knowledge
Uncertain, Michael asks: ‘So what is your point then? That I shouldn’t go into my son’s bedroom and have a political conversation with him?’
Hilary replies: ‘First thing in the morning. You should not be going into your son’s bedroom without a proper knock, first thing in the morning.’
But Michael is sure that Jack wanted to have that conversation: ‘I’d given it a *knocks*, and then he welcomed me in his bedroom. He loved having chats about politics, he’s interested in politics himself.’
Hilary agreed: ‘He is. I mean, the number of times I had to sneak girls down the stairs out of that house, and there were a lot of stairs, and they went past our bedroom.’
Michael confirms: ‘And a lot of girls too.’ Hilary adds: ‘A lot of girls that I had to sneak past.’
Jokingly, Michael said he was glad that there was no more than one girl at a time which he had to sneak past.’
Divulging even more about Jack’s past, Hilary said: ‘I mean, I never did multiple sneaking out, no. Some of them have actually become quite well known, but we’re not going to go there.’
Jack has been dating model Roxy Horner for over two years.
