Mr Jeremy Vine and former Brexit Party MEP Ann Widdecombe got into a heated debate regarding the use of apostrophes. Mr Vine ended up finishing the debate with a stern slap down claiming that Ms Widdecombe was wrong. Mr Vine said: “If we took about the Wells’ house, but is there another s on it?”
Ms Widdecome replied: “No, no, a plural is an apostrophe outside, an apostrophe outside of the word.”
Mr Vine hit back: “Okay, let us say it is him in the house.
“It is Adrian Wells’ house, you are saying it is an apostrophe s.
“Nobody ever does that, look at the bible, Jesus’ disciples, J-E-S-U-S apostrophe.

“No S on the end.”
Ms Widdecome piped up, insisting it was either or in that scenario.
Mr Vine reiterated that it was not to which Ms Widdecombe repeated herself.
She then said: “I am saying that it is either or, I was taught that when you are making a plural with a name that is ending in an S, when it is singular, you can put the apostrophe with an S or you can leave off the S.”

She said: “I go mad with the complete muddle between your which means something you possess and you’re as you are.
“And you are is abbreviated with an apostrophe.”
