The pair were discussing Davidson branding Diversity’s 2020 Britain’s Got Talent performance, which narrated the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests, ‘ridiculous’ and ‘indulgent’.
Speaking to presenter Miles Crawford during a Ustreme video, the 67-year-old said he ‘stormed out’ of the interview.

He said: “I was there to fill in the gaps and they were going to make me the bad guy. So what I did, apart from leaving after 30 minutes, was I said ‘You’ve made your mind up, I’m off’.
“[I] took my mic off and did a Piers Morgan. I stormed out, instead of going out the front door, I went in the toilet.’”
He continued: “During the interview, [Ashley] was very, very passionate about things. But the disturbing thing was, I told him I thought that [the Britain’s Got Talent dance] was quite amazing.
“It achieved what you want to set out, I would imagine. [I asked him] what did you want to achieve with that? Notoriety? Fame? They’ve certainly got both.
“I divided the audience’s opinion. But I said ‘You’ve captured the hearts of people, and you’ve angered people’.”
Davidson explained what his issue with the dance was, explaining that it was ‘on a light entertainment show on a Saturday night’.
During the sit-down chat, Banjo said: “As far as I’m concerned, that video you made about Diversity [about the performance] it was… it was racist in every way. Every single way.”
Davidson responded: “If I was talking about you it would be personal rather than be racist.”
Banjo then said: “It was both. It was personal and racist. I’m from this country, I love this country, I’m from a mixed-race background.”
When things eventually go heated and Davidson stormed off, Banjo said it was because he was asking him the ‘difficult questions’.
