A BBC children’s presenter has been reprimanded for wearing a T-shirt that contained a risque slogan.
Dominic Wood was rapped for wearing a “Morning Wood” T-shirt on his Dick and Dom in da Bungalow show.
The 26-year-old wore the T-shirt earlier this year on the two-hour Saturday programme aimed at eight to 12-year-olds.
The phrase is common slang for waking in the morning in an aroused state, says The Sun.
As a result of the incident, all presenters of live BBC kids’ shows will have their clothing vetted.
A viewer complained to Ofcom that the message was “an offensive sexual slogan, completely inappropriate for a children’s programme”.
In its defence, the BBC said: “The innuendo was aimed at people outside the show’s core audience. Children of that age could not be expected to recognise the joke.
“But the executive in charge was extremely concerned and has made her displeasure clear in the strongest terms.”
Ofcom said the matter was now resolved and added: “The logo was inappropriate but for its core audience the double entendre was likely to be lost.”
