Kirstie Allsopp made a guest appearance on Times Radio yesterday to discuss the proposed privatisation of Channel 4. The television star, who is best known for presenting property programmes on the network, spoke so passionately about the matter that she accidentally swore live on-air.
Following the blunder, the Location, Location, Location host took to Twitter to say sorry to listeners.
“Apologies to @TimesRadio @lukejones03 had no idea ‘b******s’ was a no, no,” she wrote online, in view of her 422,900 followers.
The presenter then added an emoji of a bar of soap and a mouth, possibly illustrating the old phrase “wash your mouth out with soap”, a punishment used after uttering a profanity.
The incident happened when Kirstie spoke to Luke Jones, who was standing in for John Pienaar on the drivetime show.
Many took to the comments section of her post to share their thoughts.
“It made me laugh in the car! I thought you could have been much more descriptive!” one follower remarked.
Another added: “It’s one of my favourite words…….. ‘nonsense; rubbish (used to express contempt or disagreement, or as an exclamation of annoyance)'”.
Kirstie was on the show to talk about the proposed privatisation of Channel 4.
Kirstie has worked on the network for over 20 years, hosting shows such as Love It or List It with her co-host Phil Spencer.
She uttered the word “b*****ks” while commenting on the remarks made by media minister John Whittingdale earlier in the day.
Kirstie said: “This streaming thing that John Whittingdale said this morning. I’m sorry to say this, but it’s b*****ks. The Channel 4 streaming service is hugely successful…
“Apologies if you were listening with small children, who didn’t want to hear Kirstie’s language there,” the host cut in.

“It’s true, I’m sorry… Channel 4 streaming service is fantastic. It’s doing incredibly well. It’s a huge part of Channel 4’s revenue this year.
“For John Whittingdale to go on the radio and on TV and to say we have to sell Channel 4 because they might come to us with a begging bowl in a few years time.
“Is – and I will correct my language again, I apologise – it’s not true,” she said.
Earlier in the week, Kirstie addressed claims that the network is “too woke” on the micro-blogging site.
“Folk say @Channel4 is too woke, and selling it appeals to anti woke voters, but they’ve had me front & centre for the last 20 years, and him indoors.
“Much as I like to use correct & sensitive language and understand the issues of the day I hardly think Pip [co-star Phil Spencer] & I are woke central,” she tweeted.
Kirstie said that Channel 4 was a great place to work and has allowed her the freedom to speak her mind.
The government is set to review the future of the network, a public service broadcaster, which was launched 39 years ago.
