Bob Geldof was booted off stage at a corporate gig by Gabby Logan after ranting about Brexit.
The multimillionaire told his City worker audience that the ‘public hated’ them and did not trust them, forcing an embarrassed Logan to cut him off.
She told the former Boomtown Rat: ‘Thankyou Bob. I think we’ll end it there.’

Sir Bob’s bizarre performance at the Intrinsic Financial Services conference, at the Sofitel London Heathrow, even caused some furious guests to storm out.
He had been booked alongside a host of other celebrities to keep the audience entertained, with comedian Kevin Bridges, former England rugby star Lawrence Dallaglio and businesswoman and Apprentice judge Karen Brady all taking to the stage.
Alan Lazenby, a planning consultant from from Leeds, fumed on Facebook: ‘Just left the Intrinsic conference after listening to Sir Bob Geldoff talk s*** about Brexit.’
Other guests said that his antics were ‘nauseating’ and ‘cringeworthy’.
One told the Sunday Mirror: ‘He was ranting that nobody had faith in financial advisers or other City people.
‘Apparently city execs are all paid too much. The hypocrisy is nauseating – he’s worth about £30million.’
Live Aid star Sir Bob courted controversy in 2012, when it was revealed that his ‘non-dom’ status protected him from paying a certain amount of tax.
