Robert Webb has blasted his own reality show, branding its stars "t***s" and "feckless idiots".

The British comic - who narrates BBC Three's 'Young, Dumb and Living Off Mum, which sees lazy youths trying to look after themselves - claims he only agreed to appear on the show because he needed money, and was so ashamed of it he didn't tell his friends or family.

Robert raged: "It's a reality show where t***s aged 17 to 25 live in a house together and have big, stupid rows which I narrate.

"And then, amazingly, the feckless idiot parents get to vote for the least annoying one and whoever is left, by default, wins the show.

"I think I injected a sufficient amount of disdain into that voice-over. I did it for the money, of course - the money. And I spent that disdainfully too."

But Robert - who is best known for his starring role in comedy series 'Peep Show' - defended his decision to put cash ahead of his pride.

He said: "When someone asks, 'Do you want to do some funny ads for not many days in the year and be paid more than you would be for an entire series of 'Peep Show'?' the answer, obviously, is, 'Yeah, that's fine.' "
