Jeremy Paxman C Word!
Jeremy Paxman dropped a foul mouthed faux-pas on Monday night's Newsnight, the third BBC presenter to say the 'C word' in a couple of months.
Bookmakers William Hill make the confrontational presenter their 6/1 favourite to be the next BBC TV presenter to turn the airwaves blue. Weatherman, Thomasz Schafernacker and One Show host, Chris Evans, are both 8/1 to mispronounce ‘cut' or ‘hunt' or another similar word, to be left red-faced (and blue mouthed) on live television.
"We have seen three BBC presenters utter the most controversial of all expletives in live situations and it cannot be long before another presenter opens his/her mouth, only to plant a foot firmly in it," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "Can it have been coincidental that Paxman's verbal violation came minutes after the same word had been uttered twice during BBC 2's ‘Episodes'."
