Ross attracts more complaints

Radio 2's Jonathan Ross is back in the headlines after Ofcom confirmed that complaints had been received about recent comments on his radio show.

He has been accused of homophobia after he suggested parents should put their sons up for adoption if they wanted a Hannah Montana MP3 player last weekend.

A BBC spokeswoman said: "The BBC has received four complaints about Jonathan’s comments on Saturday’s show. However, these off-the-cuff remarks were made purely in jest and were not intended to be offensive.

"Jonathan is not homophobic in any sense and never meant for his comments to be taken seriously."

On his [link=]Twitter[/link] account last night, Jonathan said: "Am mortified to hear some people thought I was being homophobic on Radio show. Nothing could be further from truth, as I am sure most know."
