    Made the kids and I laugh - but as someone who was on Radio 2 last week and admitted to something rather embarrassing in front of 8 million listeners (sorry can't tell you otherwise my anonymity on here will be over!) Martin should just giggle!!

    Nice shirt by the way!!!!!! :j

    I never even noticed. Is anyone really bothered by that word?

    Julia Bradbury as in Castaway etc. Wow... Castaway was produced by Lion TV wasn't it, for BBC1. Have a friend of a friend who works for Lion TV in the US, Ciara Byrne. Julia Bradbury certainly has got a lot of strings to her bow hasn't she, good for her. :-)

    Taransay where Castaway was located/filmed etc is probably where the majority of my descendents from many moons ago came from.

    I think that in this day and age Martin's choice of words was fine, I bet nobody complained to the BBC about it.

    I also embarrassed myself many moons ago on Radio 1, 10 million listeners, but hey, at least they couldn't see my face:o

    As for the slip of the tongue, it did make me smile, especially as a British Gas rep was on the show too...what was her reaction to the comment I wonder?

    At least the brief comments from Martin on Five news about 5 minutes before Watchdog didn't have any foul language, but I guess they editted it all out of that one!
    Who made hogs and dogs and frogs?
  • I did notice but laughed and to be honest I think its every day talk nowadays. Most people don't even think about where the word originated. Don't worry, Martin, its your advice we're listening to!
