I believe 'bollocks' was uttered five times within less than five minutes, since Piers said it thrice before the interview, forced the interviewee to say it, and then reiterated it afterwards. Some people have been having a go about it on Twitter, but then again, you could say that about everything that ever happens.
Guess who's big in the back time.

The magic 15 minutes or whatever it's called is now more than half an hour most days. I found 15 minutes of 'banter' or really just 'potential click bait' or actually 'Daily Mail copy and paste job' just about palatable, now I just don't turn on until at least 6:30. They have taken it too far now.

If it's been 'legaled' then as it's a fact as to what was on the T Shirt, would OFCOM jump on it?


OFCOM's research describes bollocks as

Quote:
Medium language,potentially unacceptable pre-watershed. Not generally offensive but somewhat vulgar when used to refer to testicles. Less problematic when used to mean ‘nonsense’.


I suspect that they will say it's editorially justified in the context.

Write that down in your copybook now.

This past week a few times they've gone to the news, or somehow into while discussing related topic at around 6.20.

Hating it originally, I've come to like it although it will eventually (or to some maybe now) end up becoming a parody of itself.
