O'Leary off the hook over swear word on TV


Robert Dex

TV host Dermot O'Leary will face no further action after he swore on live TV during his dance marathon in aid of Comic Relief.

The broadcaster, who recently left his job hosting The X Factor on ITV, raised more than £600,000 (€840,000) for good causes by dancing for 24 hours.

But 18 hours in to his marathon effort, he greeted a friend outside New Broadcasting House in central London by saying: "How f***ing fantastic to see you."
