John Cleese says ‘can I say f***?’ live on radio forcing DJ Moyles into apology

Chris Moyles apologised to viewers during Thursday's Radio X morning show as John Cleese dropped the f-bomb on air.

The 80-year-old Fawlty Towers star left the radio studio stunned as he asked if he could say "f***" during the live broadcast.

Chris was playing the Monty Python legend a comedy song, but he certainly wasn't expecting the response that came from the actor's mouth.

Cleese said: "That's very good, now am I allowed to say f***."

The studio all quickly said "no", but it was of course too late as the swear had already been said.

Chris was forced to apologise to viewers as he said: "Oh no god, oh no, not at all.

"I have to apologise for you saying it and say sorry about that."

Listeners went into meltdown on social media, so much so that John Cleese's name is trending on Twitter.

The vast majority finding the swearing blunder hilarious, as one tweeted: "Absolutely hilarious John Cleese dropping the F Bomb on @ChrisMoylesShow. What a legend!"

While another wrote: "John Cleese asking @ChrisMoyles if he was allowed to say "f***" on @RadioX has really brightened up my day."

A third added: "John Cleese politely asking live on @RadioX @ChrisMoylesShow if he can say "F***". Nearly spat my coffee everywhere!!"

"John Cleese on Radio X asking "can I say f*** on the radio" and saying the word is the funniest thing I've heard in ages", penned a fourth listener.

Cleese recently sparked controversy when he challenged comedians to tell him a "woke joke" and called "political correctness" the fastest way to stifle creativity.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he is concerned about "cancel culture".

The comedian explained: "PC stuff started out as a good idea, which is, "Let's not be mean to people," and I'm in favour of that despite my age.

"The main thing is to try to be kind. But that then becomes a sort of indulgence of the most over-sensitive people in your culture, the people who are most easily upset."

He continued: "I don’t think we should organise a society around the sensibilities of the most easily upset people because then you have a very neurotic society."
