......and Diversity Code for saying he had MAN FLU!!! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes


Jeremy Vine has been reported under the BBC Equality and Diversity Code for joking that he had "man flu".

The presenter - who recently starred on Strictly Come Dancing - told Dr Sarah Jarvis he had the mystery illness on Monday, during a feature about Victorian ailments on his regular Radio 2 lunchtime show.

But not everyone took it so well, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

Innocuous though the comment may seem, an angry listener has apparently taken offence and duly referred the incident to the powers that be at the Beeb.

Jeremy tweeted "Oh great, someone's reported under the BBC Equality and Diversity Code because I told Dr Sarah Jarvis yesterday I had man flu

Needless to say he had many supportive tweets. Very Happy

I can't see the problem. It's not as if the female population don't have their own equivalent. Don't they get "Bird Flu"?
