In its first ruling since announcing a crackdown on cruel and humliating comedy, the BBC Trust said there was no justification for making such a remark about Miss Adlington's appearance. It ruled that the comment was both "humiliating" and "offensive".
Personally, me, myself, I, found the joke to be hilarious. The PC monkeys at BBC Trust have upheld the complaint, says it all really.
However, I would like Rebecca to get her own back so it would have been funny if she had been allowed to walk on to the next show FB was on and stick a custard pie in his face, without him being pre-warned. Now that would have been great TV.
