Probe into daytime airing of Ramsay TV show swearing

By Sherna Noah

Gordon Ramsay's Channel 4 show Ramsay's Hotel Hell has sparked an Ofcom investigation - after the expletive-laden show was broadcast in the morning.

The show sparked 19 complaints after viewers heard six uses of "f***" uttered by the chef, known for his colourful language.

An Ofcom spokesperson said: "We're investigating the use of the most offensive language before the watershed."

Channel 4 previously said it broadcast the evening episode instead of the daytime repeat version of the show, in April, in error.

A Channel 4 spokeswoman yesterday blamed "human error" for broadcasting the unedited version.
