Chris Evans' breakfast radio show is being investigated by Ofcom after actor Jeremy Irons swore on the show.

The media watchdog confirmed they are looking into whether or not Irons' use of a swear word breached rules regarding offensive language.

"Ofcom is investigating this programme, which included the most offensive language before the watershed," they confirmed.

Irons appeared as a guest on the BBC Radio 2 show in March.

While recounting a story about fellow actor John Hurt, he accidentally used the word f***** on air.

Both Evans and Irons apologised immediately following the incident.
