BBC sorry after John Barrowman exposed himself
Dec 1 2008 WalesOnline

The BBC has apologised and admitted today that a live radio show during which TV star John Barrowman exposed himself “overstepped the mark”.

Barrowman, who lives in Cardiff Bay, performed the act during an interview on Radio 1’s Switch show yesterday evening, after being prompted on the subject.

(snip)

During yesterday’s show, presented by Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac, Grimshaw asked Barrowman, who has starred in Doctor Who and its spin-off Torchwood: “You’re famous, we’re told for getting your willy out in interviews.

“Is this going to happen today?”

Barrowman responded by saying he was going to “get it out”, amid shouting and laughter.

He was later heard to say: “I didn’t take the whole thing out, but I got my fruit and nuts out.”

Annie Mac apologised on air at the end of the programme for any offence that may have been caused.

The BBC emphasised that nothing untoward was screened online.

Dude, you're doing it wrong. :rolleyes:

I didn't hear it, but I believe a webcam was involved, so I suppose there could have been children listening/watching the show over the internet. Bit of a non story really but if it damages the BBC then I'm cool with it.

Ah well, that might be different then.

BBC is having some trouble with it's "liberal" image lately.

The BBC claims that no "fruit" or "nuts" were exposed on the cam. I guess they didn't count any of the BBC on-air talent in that tally. :D

"TV star John Barrowman"

Who?
He plays Jack Harkness in a rather convoluted but nonetheless somewhat entertaining sci-fi series marginally related to Dr Who.
