Katherine Ryan has been left livid after her 14-year-old daughter was sexually harassed while on a day trip. The comedian hit out after her daughter, and a pal, were sexually harrassed by grown men “everywhere” during a trip to the capital city London.
Katherine vented her anger over the unnerving incident which took place in London, as a stranger began filming 14-year-old Violet without her consent. Speaking on her Telling Everybody Everything podcast, Katherine was “p***ed off” after Violet and her cousin Lily, 16, had their sweet day trip ruined.
Katherine says the pair’s wholesome day full of cute activities was ruined – by a “gross” man on public transport. The comedian was left livid and went on to explain how they had been “sexually harassed by grown men everywhere they went” during their day trip out to London.

“I’m p***ed off this week because Violet and her cousin Lily have been out in London. They’ve been out in the day; they’ve been out on the train just doing very wholesome activities. Shopping, going to a theme park, doing this and that,” Katherine fumed. “And everywhere they go, every day, they have been sexually harassed by grown men.”
The ITV The Masked Singer star said there was “no mistaking” her daughter’s age. “She’s 14, she has braces on her teeth. Anyone looking at these girls, no one is mistaking them for being adult women,” Katherine – who is a talk show and comedy show regular – went on to add.
“There was a man in the middle of the day filming them on the underground. Just a man on his own who got his phone out and started filming these girls sat opposite them,” Katherine went on. “I won’t go into all the incidents because I want to talk about Violet less and less publicly because I do think she’s entitled to privacy,” Katherine added.
