They say it's racist
Gavin and Stacey critics are calling for the popular comedy to be pulled from telly streaming services amid a furious race row.
This comes after a week seeing various sketch shows being pulled from players: Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, Saturday Night Takeaway, “Don’t mention the war” episode of Fawlty Towers… and now people want to see Gavin and Stacey disappear too.
The show, written by James Corden and Ruth Jones, features both a character called 'Chinese Alan' and a man described as 'Seth, the black fella'.
The show has been described online as racist, misogynistic, homophobic and fat-shaming. The BBC however, has held firm in their belief that Gavin and Stacey was none of these things, and has no plans to remove the show from their listings.
We hear a lot of complaints about Ed Sheeran’s neighbours and how they’re upset about what he wants to build on the land he bought in his home town of Ipswich, but here’s some good news.
Ed Sheeran’s concerts helped boost the economy in his home town of Ipswich by more than £9million, figures revealed yesterday.
He played four gigs at Chantry Park to more than 139,000 fans last August.
Hotels, restaurants and bars and cafes were among the many businesses to benefit, and they’re hoping there’s more to come!
