Chris Evans Breakfast Show to be investigated

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 is under Ofcom investigation for the content of a particular show last month.

But whilst the nature of the investigation has not been revealed, the regulator is concentrating on what happened during the show on March 18th – when Jeremy Irons was on as a guest.

It’s the day Jeremy dropped the F word into the conversation, when he was promoting the new Ben Wheatley film High-Rise.

He said: “You know what I do when I find a good actor? I say to him, ‘You have a wonderful voice. Have you ever listened to it?’ And the actor is f**ked”.

“You can’t say that on the BBC!” Chris then replied. “So not only is the actor, but so it the programme,” he continued.

Chris and Jeremy both said sorry but some of the guests made light of the situation.
