. .

BBC Radio 1 has taken steps to avoid the now-annual class broadcasting the celebratory hit by censoring two words that offended some listeners in the past

The heads of BBC Radio 1 changed the lyrics of the classic Christmas song Fairytale of New York sung by The Pogues.

The station wanted to avoid offending the broadcast of a festive song this year because it contained two controversial words that had offended so many people in the past..

The Execs made the decision to change « f **** t » to « haggard », while the word « slut » is muted to avoid blocking the song from the airwaves completely.

In a statement, the BBC told Mirror Online: “We know the song is a Christmas classic and we will continue to play it this year, as our radio stations choose to release the song best suited to their audience.. .

A BBC insider told us that all stations have free play whatever version of the track suits their audiences best, but it was felt that younger listeners on Radio 1 would prefer to hear the edited songs.

“Radio 2 fans will continue to hear the original song with the insulting lyrics, while 6 music will be exchanged between the two versions..

The original song – sung by Kirsty MacColl and Shane MacGowan – you see the words « You cheap lousy f **** t » tied.

Last year, BBC Presenter Alex Dyke admitted that he was « no longer comfortable » with the song..

Before hosting his evening program on BBC Radio Solent, he shared a series of now-deleted tweets about the song.. .

In his posts, he criticized the 1987 Masar, describing it as an « offensive pile from the Shaf Asen market ».

He wrote: « Radio, let’s ban this Christmas fairy tale New York! » You’re a bitch in the trash, you’re a bag ***, cheap bum **** – is this what we want kids singing in the back of the car?

While Gavin and Stacey viewers weren’t happy when the highly anticipated Christmas 2019 special included the lyrics in a pub scene.

The BBC has confirmed that the song has appeared on a special screening and will not be censored before airing.

The announcer chose to use the original hateful soundtrack because the lyrics were « ingrained » with the audience.

Also note that Fairytale of New York is a « very popular and beloved Christmas song » played frequently during the Christmas season..

In a statement to Mirror Online, the BBC said: “We know the song is a Christmas classic and we will continue to play it this year, as our radio stations choose the version of the song best suited to it.. The audience.
