The BBC has been left red faced after it broadcast the F-word on its daytime politics show.

Members of the audience spotted the Beeb’s gaffe when it accidentally showed foul-mouthed comments posted on Jeremy Corbyn’s Instagram account.

The F-word’s were clearly visible in the segment

Tuesday’s Daily Politics on BBC2 was discussing how the political parties are using social media to win over the public. It used the pages of different politicians as a backdrop to the conversation.

But a clip of Labour leader Corbyn’s account, showing a cuddly toy version of him, was accompanied by the swearing after people posted comments alongside it.

Viewer Phill Nutt wrote: “BBC did you have to put up all the tweets with swearing in the background on Daily Politics?”

Mark Doswell added: “Daily Politics you really should vet the tweets used in the piece about social media. Some very fruity language there.”

She said liquidising grub ruined its texture.

Despite its name, clean eating is the opposite — involving food as close as possible to its natural form.

It has been championed as healthier by trendy chefs.

But Mary, who is famed for her traditional puds, made it plain she is no fan.

She said: “It’s really about eating a balanced diet. You are what you eat.

She said: “It’s really about eating a balanced diet. You are what you eat.

“Everybody wants smoothies, but I’d rather have the texture of vegetables and fruits.

“If you want to have kale and spinach made into a smoothie, you have it. But for me, I just want a balanced diet — fruit, veg, meat and fish.”

 

Her blast came as she insisted she had no sour grapes over Prue Leith replacing her on the Great British Bake Off.

Mary quit when the show was poached from the BBC by Channel 4.”

She said: “If I could have chosen someone to take my place, and if they’d given me all the cookery writers set in a row, I would have said that Prue would be the one.”

She praised new presenters Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig. But she added: “It’s just people get a bit crabby about the ads”
