Kirstie Allsopp's Anger After C4 Order Her To Re-shoot Scenes Where She Said 'christ Almighty'

Recommended Posts

Maybe the people she was dealing with, saw sense, and told her to bugger off..

As her attempts at redesign and relocation plunge into mayhem in the last half-hour of her shows, presenter Kirstie Allsopp could be forgiven for looking for heavenly intervention. However the Relocation Relocation presenter has been ordered by Channel 4 to re-shoot parts of the latest series after taking the Lord's name in vain a bit too frequently.

Kirstie was told there could be a"compliance issue' with her language after she uttered the expressions 'for God's sake' and 'Christ Almighty' while filming scenes from the new series of Relocation, Relocation. The show goes out an hour before the 9pm watershed.

The 35-year-old presenter used her Twitter page to complain, posting: 'Just been told I can't say "for god's sake!" or "Christ almighty" on TV (& it's channel 4!!). 'I am so sick of compliance I could scream - Aah!'

However Channel 4 defended its actions in curbing the star's language. 'During filming, Kirstie was asked to perform a retake in case there was a compliance issue with some language. 'Like all broadcasters, Channel 4 is guided by Ofcom regulations which regulate the use of swear words before the watershed. 'However, no-one at C4 has yet seen the footage so there may be no issue with what Kirstie preferred to say.'

The presenter has won support for her choice of langauge from the Campaign Against Political Correctness. A spokesman said: 'Of course we understand the need to curb excessive or inflammatory language but terms like these have been common parlance in Britain for centuries.

'It's ridiculous that such stern action is taken against anyone using these phrases - they are just figures of speech. 'It's not meant to be offensive - people should have the freedom to not tread on egg shells every time they open their mouths. 'And banning people from using such terms can often have the opposite effect - they'll use it all the more and deliberately to cause offence.

'For god's sake and Christ Almighty should no in no way be taken literally.'

This must be the same Channel 4 that had a bloke tugging at his foreskin at 8.30pm then.

I know, the standards are shocking on the tv at the moment. The quality across ALL channels, including basic spoken English is horrendous we find.

when you hear news correspondents saying "I texted him earlier" on a regular basis, even on the once revered BBC.

They have all been too busy dancing on ice & forging a tv career to keep up their own standards. Perhaps it is just showing what always existed underneath the surface ?

Mrs GOM & I have noticed a complete lowering of the tone across ALL channels tbh.

same goes for this place imo.

I haven't got long left on this site I fear......after reading some of the recent posts.

I thought it was the 'Campaign Against Price Correction' that Krusty was involved in

What is her official position on the "hat eating" thing?

She denies ever having said it.

I spent some time doing a google search, and all I found was hundreds of references to "Kirstie Allsopp, who has said she will eat her hat....", or "Kirstie Allsopp, who has allegedly said she will eat her hat...."

I found no reference to where or when she is supposed to have said this, nor any source in which she actually says it.

So to my mind that makes it an urban myth, until anyone can actually provide a source.

Its not an urban myth. She did say it but in reference to a very particular time frame back in 2005.

She basically said "If hice prices don't start going back up by next spring I'll eat my hat". It might not have been spring though - for some reason I've got September in my mind but that's not very logical.

Anyway the point is, she did say it, but its been taken out of context and become a metaphor for how badly she's got it wrong and an example of how much she relies on people not remembering her purposefully over-optimistic predictions.

It also demonstrates that although she publically bullies people into buying overpriced houses, she actually has no better insight into the future of the property market than any other shiny-suited gap-toothed, mouthy estate agent.

That is exactly how I remember it, except it was 2004.

Compliance rule 27(ii) states that only "for Gordon's sake" and "Brown Almighty" are acceptable requests for help that is not expected to ever be provided.

Well, looks like we need to find it again. It was a radio broadcast, and I'm quite sure that a recording is not still available but I've seen a transcript someone's posted. It does exist, but I don't have time today to find it (I think google indexes this forum quite well though .. ?).

The important thing is less the quote than what the statement at the time represented, which was a blind and unwavering faith in rising that was for the most part self reinforcing and self interested, and ultimately contributed to the situation we are in.

If she did the same thing for publically listed shares that she owned herself, she'd be behind bars by now (this has happened to a number of financial journalists who have tried this in the UK too).

A C4 spokesperson also confirmed that "Jesus f**king wept, Jesus H Christ and Jesus f**cking Christ on a bicycle" were also innappropriate, however "effing knobjockeys" was within the letter of the Ofcom law.

Oh bravo mitchbux.

Kirsty JULY and AUGUST that’s all I'll say. School holidays; they traditionally fall at this time of year. September, mid-september, we'll see the market comes back up. If it doesn't come back up this time, I'll eat my hat.

Well I know I shouted 'for f*cks sake' at the telly the other morning when I saw that her sister, Sofie Allsopp, also has her mug on the box.

She's in a new BBC property porn show called 'The Unsellables'.

Looks like she didn't say she'll eat her hat if prices fall, but if they didn't go back up in 2004, which they did.

Hate to say it, but looks like she won't be having to eat a beret baguette.
