F-bomb dropped on BBC Radio 2 Drivetime

Simon Mayo’s live programmes from the Big Blue Tent at the Edinburgh Festival have resulted in one or two swear words this week.

One particular incident on Tuesday heard special guest Sofie Gråbøl, who was talking about filming a television show scene said: “Give me my f***ing jumper”, to the amazement and amusement of the audience. Simon interrupted and said “It’s my job to say at this point..” Sofie then apologised and said “I meant bloody”

John Lloyd, producer of BBC Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity, was also on the show as a guest, and came up with excuses for the swear words saying they were types of food in Danish.

Sofie again apologised later in the show saying “I won’t even swear in Danish now”.

Simon then turned to John Lloyd to talk about his show, who joked he was going to talk about Jeremy Hunt, former Culture Secretary.

A BBC Spokesperson told RadioToday: “The guests were all briefed ahead of the programme to remind them that this is was a live broadcast. But after Sophie accidentally swore Simon, of course, immediately apologised to listeners.”

Simon is live from the Edinburgh Festival all this week on BBC Radio 2 from 5pm till 7pm.
