The BBC was forced to “apologise” after Bradley Walsh dropped some f-bombs during the filming of Blankety Blank.

The Chase host Bradley, 60, has stepped in to host a new version of the legendary gameshow.

But it seems his fruity language during filming didn’t suit everyone.

Classic gameshow Blankety Blank making a comeback

Blankety Blank was a staple on BBC One and a much-loved gameshow.

In it, two players have to guess the blanked-out words in a phrase or sentence.

A host of celebs on the panel come up with their own ideas on how to fill the blanks and have to match the contestant’s answer.

One of the players in this new Christmas special was named Blower, which Bradley reportedly said was “good for sex education”.

ED! has gone to Bradley’s reps for comment.
