ROLY-POLY comedian Johnny Vegas has made a documentary about religion in order to reconcile himself with his Catholic upbringing.
The comedian, who went to St Joseph's seminary in Upholland, near Wigan, Lancashire, at the age of 11, Was commissioned by Channel 4 to explore America's Bible Belt.
Mr Vegas told the Guardian: "I've lost touch with my faith, which is something that now concerns me.
"I mean, I've not lost it," he clarified. "It's not God that I have any beef with, I think it's sometimes how religion is administrated."
He said St Joseph's was not so much a place to develop faith but an organisation "that was about restricting the amount of questions you could ask". He left the seminary after four terms.
When asked what he would do if his son announced a wish to enter the priesthood, he replied: "I'd want it to be his decision. I've been far more worried that he might come home and say he wants to be in Hollyoaks."
