Dr Ranj Singh said he believes raising concerns about This Morning promoting a 'toxic' workplace impacted his career.

The 44 year old man made several bombshell claims about the ITV show having a 'toxic' culture and suggested that he was 'managed' after reporting.

ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall later said in a letter that she 'was very saddened' to read Dr Ranj's complaints and added that an external review 'found no evidence of bullying or discrimination'.

Reflecting on his decision to inform ITV executives about the alleged toxicity, Dr Ranj said: “It's my job to say something and say, look, things aren't right and now we need to do something about it.”

Asked if he would change his approach, Dr Ranj replied: 'The only real difference is when I think to myself should I have shut up? Should I have shut up and gotten on with it like everyone else?'

BBC journalist Rob Adcock also asked Dr Ranj in his upcoming six-part series, Imposter Syndrome, whether this conversation had an impact on his career.

“I think so,” Dr. Ranj replied.

Speaking about his time on This Morning, Dr Ranj recalled that he was “invested” in the program and would often work the night shift and go straight back to the studio in the morning because he “loved it so much”.

He continued: 'And then I was also doing things behind the scenes because I felt passionate about a lot of the values ​​that we were doing across the Channel. So diversity and pride stuff, you know, anti-bullying stuff. When it passed it was very painful.

'When you lose something you really care about, you grieve for it, right? So I think there will always be that feeling of sadness for a while.

'For me it was the culture that developed in many ways about how people were treated and how they felt, and that wasn't good for people's mental health.

'Yes, I felt intimidated at times.'

A further review led by lawyer Jane Mulcahy has been commissioned to establish the facts surrounding presenter Phillip Schofield's resignation after he admitted lying about an affair with a This Morning runner.

The report also investigated the culture of the daytime program, with Mulcahy stating that for the period under review no 'toxic' culture was found.

Since leaving This MOrning in 2021, Dr Ranj has appeared in a one-off West End musical based on his own life called Scrubs to Sparkles, after performing on the TV show All Star Musicals.

From August to November 2021, he presented the TV series Extreme Food Phobics, in which candidates came to cure their food phobias.

Dr Ranj also appeared in an episode of Taskmaster's Alex Horne's TV show The Horne Section and appears regularly on the BBC's Morning Live.

Imposter Syndrome is a six-part series from BBC News and will be available on BBC iPlayer from 15th December.
