Dear Mr Dryburgh,
Thanks for contacting us about ‘Saturday Kitchen Live’ on 03 September. I understand you believe one of the chefs incorrectly identified a female lobster as male.
The term ‘bad boy’ has become a common slag* term used to describe a thing that’s impressive. This is what was meant. The chef wasn’t referring to the sex of the lobster.
However, I appreciate your concerns and I’d like to assure you that I’ve registered your complaint in our audience logs. The audience logs are seen as important documents that can help shape decisions about future programming and content.
[*I believe the BBC meant to write ‘slang’ here. Instead, they have used the word ‘slag’, which is offensive and has caused me to write another complaint. Thanks to Natassia for pointing this out.]
