Moyles apologises for Polish prostitute gag
Chris Moyles has apologised for seeming to suggest on his Radio 1 show that Polish people make good prostitutes.
The 34-year-old DJ prompted complaints after telling listeners last month: "I've always found in my experience prostitutes make very good cleaners, and their ironing, brilliant.
"I just find if you're Polish you're just very good at ironing... and prostitutes, (they're) very good also at fixing cars."
Moyles said he did not intend to cause any offence.
In a statement he said: "I didn't mean to link Polish people and prostitution in the way that has been suggested, but of course I realise that some people have taken it that way and to those people I'm sorry for the unintentional offence."
The latest apology from the BBC comes in the wake of the Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand prank calls scandal and actor John Barrowman exposing himself during a live Radio 1 show on Sunday.
