BBC apologises after Len Goodman comments  – recalls nan describing curry powder as ‘foreign muck’ during jubilee coverage

The Independent says the BBC issued an apology after Len Goodman recalled his grandmother describing curry powder as “foreign muck”, during its coverage of the Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations.

On Sunday 5 June, the former Strictly Come Dancing judge was seen on TV with Masterchef presenter John Torode, sampling jubilee pudding, a lemon and amaretti trifle created by Jemma Melvin.

“Everyone is serving up different dishes at their street parties, are you a cook, Len?” Melvin asked Goodman at one point.

He responded, saying: “No, I’m hopeless, honestly. My wife did Coronation Chicken yesterday for our tea and I’ve never had it before.”
