Vernon Kay has launched an extraordinary attack on Jack Black, branding the star a pig-faced 'c**k' who behaved like an 'absolute d**k' in interviews.

The 45-year-old TV personality has revealed that he met and interviewed the star, 50, on numerous occasions during his stint on the show T4 in the early 2000s, and found their interactions left a lot to be desired.

In an interview published by The Sun, Vernon is quoted as saying: 'I don’t know whether he’d had a hangover or whether it was because I was either the first or last interview of the day but he was horrible. He was an absolute d**k, an a******e.'

The Manchester native continued in his rant: 'When you’re so rude, arrogant, and pig-faced to a young TV presenter, who’s so nervous and trying to hone his skills, and you’re so arrogant to dismiss that, it’s just not on.

'He was just a c**k. I interviewed him three or four times for various films. I interviewed him for Gulliver’s Travels, for School of Rock, for Shallow Hal and a couple of others and he was just the same every time.'

And, according to The Sun, Vernon is hopeful his cutting words capture the attention of Jack, as he added: 'I hope he reads it, and let this be a lesson to Jack Black.'
