You don’t think the BBC are running scared, do you?

Here’s an Official Statement from John Barrowman:

“I was joining in the light-hearted and fun banter of the show and went too far,” he said. “I was wrong to do this and it will never happen again.”

Oh noes. Another controversy is just what the BBC need! What did he do? Insult the Pope? Look askance at John Sergeant? Take Andrew Sachs’ name in vain?

Torchwood star John Barrowman has apologised for exposing his genitals during a live BBC Radio 1 broadcast.

On the radio? He exposed his genitals on the radio?

The BBC has also apologised for the incident on Sunday’s Switch show, which prompted one listener to complain.

The Switch show is on from 1900-2100. On Radio 1.

The show has now been taken off the BBC’s iPlayer service.

So, just to sum up: someone exposed their genitals on the radio, one person complained, and the BBC surrendered while violently flagellating themselves. I think the BBC should grow a pair. They can probably get a cast of John Barrowman’s.
