Told ya! - Ofcom gets complaints over the use of "BASTARD"


Speaking to you guys last night over on Facebook, nobody was really offended by Carol Jackson swearing. A few had problems with the fact that their children are watching.

Well, it seems many people were really upset and complained to Ofcom asking for an investigation. Carol (Lindsey Coulson) called her brother Max Branning a "complete and utter bastard" in tense scenes during Thursday's instalment, having just discovered that he was trying to get his daughter Abi to confess to murder.

Her line which aired at approximately 19:50 last night angered 29 people to the point of actually complaining to Ofcom.

An Ofcom spokesman said: "We will assess these complaints before deciding whether to investigate or not."

The episode's writer Daran Little addressed the scene on his Twitter account last night to apologise for any offence caused, adding in a deleted message that it was the first time a soap had allowed him to use that word.


EastEnders continues tonight at 8pm on BBC One.

  2. Dear god! Have they nothing better to do with their time? Im surprised swear words havent popped out of someone else's mouth in East enders. To me, it seems funny hearing the likes of Phil being all polite when hes seriously p****d off. Get a grip people; as someone has already said, children hear a lot worse playing in the street or at school!
