BBC apologises over Bradley Walsh's sweary debut as Blankety Blank host

BRADLEY Walsh’s debut as host of classic gameshow Blankety Blank was a four-letter fiasco that prompted a BBC apology.

The Chase presenter, 60, repeatedly blurted “f* hell” after fluffing his lines in front of a virtual audience during filming of the Christmas special.

He swore again when Jimmy Carr poked fun at his gaffes in the game — once hosted by Terry Wogan and Les Dawson — in which contestants guess a blanked out word in a statement, hoping the star panellists have agreed.

Bradley said: “We can’t get anyone back.

“The other presenters are all f*****g dead.”

Dr Who star Bradley also joked that one contestant’s surname, Blower, was ideal for “sex education”.

The show’s warm up act, Stuart Holdham, apologised “on behalf of the BBC” for the rude words at the recording in Maidstone Studios, Kent.

The show, last seen in 2002, is expected to get a full series next year if the special rates well
