BBC receives record 100,000 complaints after wall-to-wall Prince Philip death coverage

According to The Sun newspaper, the deluge of complaints have broken the record for the most complained about television event in British history.

The previous unwanted record was for the BBC’s 2005 screening of ‘Jerry Springer: The Musical’, which led to 63,000 complaints.

The BBC put a form on its website to enable viewers to complain about the coverage, but it was later taken down on Sunday (11.04.21).
