He kept warm in a navy jacket over his white T-shirt and black trousers, teaming the look with sneakers and a knitted beanie over his long hair.

She still has a private school attitude, making the coronavirus pandemic all about her after her European summer holiday was cancelled.

The revived character will see Lilley parodying performative activism, as Ja’mie – who is hardly known for being politically correct – tells listeners she’s ‘really woke now’.

In June last year, four of Lilley’s shows – Jonah from Tonga, Angry Boys, Summer Heights High and We Can Be Heroes – were removed from Netflix in Australia and New Zealand.

The programs raised questions about racial discrimination as several of the characters were portrayed with Lilley in blackface and brownface.

On Angry Boys, he portrayed African-American rapper S.mouse and performed a song called Squashed N****.

In Jonah from Tonga, he painted his face brown and wore a curly wig to portray troubled teen Jonah Takalua.

The award-winning comedian went on to say he would continue making ‘clever, layered’ characters.

Defending his controversial portrayals, he added: ‘When you meet them, you think “I know that type of person”, but then there is a twist, something crazy.

‘[In] the end you think, “Actually, I kind of relate to this, she just did that thing that I do every day.”‘
