This morning.

Via The London Evening Standard:

Countdown presenter Rachel Riley has defended her decision to wear a t-shirt featuring a doctored photo of Jeremy Corbyn, saying she has “no qualms” about “highlighting” the Labour leader’s “racism”.

The original photo, taken in 1984, captures the moment the Labour leader was arrested while protesting the South African apartheid.

However, the real message on Mr Corbyn’s placard – which read: “Defend the right to protest against apartheid. Join this picket” – has been replaced on Ms Riley’s top.

[Myleene] Klass, who has also worked as a model, TV presenter and released several classical music albums, told host Nick Hewer: “I got a rude one. It’s an eight… gobsh**e.”
But the word received the seal of approval from veteran dictionary corner expert Susie Dent, who confirmed it was “chiefly Irish” and “vulgar slang”.
