I just can’t believe the scope of the fallout over this…
The controller of BBC Radio 2, Lesley Douglas, has resigned over the prank calls involving presenters Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross.
Ms Douglas said the decision to leave her job was “mine and mine alone”.
The broadcasting head tendered her resignation to BBC director general Mark Thompson this morning.
Thompson met with the BBC Trust for several hours on Thursday to discuss how lewd calls made by Brand and Ross to actor Andrew Sachs came to be aired.
