His remarks came as many Brits are still struggling to pay their bills amid the cost-of-living crisis.

Palmer, 39, said he doesn’t like giving tips to lowly paid staff in restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries.

He fumed: “Today’s pet hate, tipping of staff

“Have to do it everywhere you go now

“Order a coffee, go to the bakery

“Flip that little screen over, 15, 20, 25%

“They stand there right where you press it

“You always have to press 20%

“What the f*ck for? Ordering a drink.”

He added: “How on earth have we bought into that?

“It used to be that you used to get good service.

“Now the service is pretty much sIt everywhere you go.”

He claimed: “And if you don’t pay it they chase you out the restaurant like you are some sort of a leper

“F*ck off.”

But Palmer split opinions about whether it was right or wrong to tip staff, as reported by Need To Know.
