PRESCOTT AFFAIR: CALL HIM 'JOHNNY TWO SHAGS'
RADIO 2's Sarah Kennedy dropped herself in it yesterday, joking about Mr Prescott as "Two Shags".
The presenter, left, thanked a listener to her early morning show for suggesting the Deputy PM change his "Two Jags" nickname to "Two Shags". Stifling a giggle, she chortled: "...stop it!" and quickly signed off.
One shocked caller rang Wogan to ask guest host Johnnie Walker: "Did I really hear Sarah say that?"
Another listener who heard Johnnie confirm it said: "What a thoughtless remark. It's a funny joke but there's a time and place for that sort of language and it isn't when kids are having breakfast."
Radio 2 said: "It was a light-hearted play on words and it was certainly not Sarah's intention to cause offence."
