Davina McCall Makes Official Statement Of Apology
I’ve just found out that Davina McCall has made an official statement of apology for the disablist comments made on Celebrity Big Brother in January this year. This is not the on air apology from Channel 4 that we’re campaigning for, but it’s progress of a sort. Here’s the text of her statement:
When filming the last live show of Big Brother’s Big Mouth on the final eviction night at the end of January, Vinnie and I used a word that I realise now was wholly inappropriate. It had been a long day for everyone and the show was live but this in no way justifies the choice of word used. It has been brought to my attention how offensive this was and I want to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly apologise. I, in no way, wanted to upset or offend anyone and I hope that people will now accept my apology in the good faith that it is given.
