John Sargeant won't be wearing these this year,

Following previous years, where previously sober News reader and Weather People have dressed up in tights, dresses and suspenders for Children in Need, this practice is to banned for this year.

This follows the recent debacle involving Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand, as well Jeremy Clarkson for who denim is a life choice, not a style, controller of BBC1, a Mr Grimsdale is seeking to rein in any form of criticism that could be levelled at the BBC. Speaking to us earlier, he said:

'In a more innocent time, when belts were not so tight as they are now, the sight of Jeremy Vine, Jeremy Bowen, or Michael Burke in suspenders was a treat we all looked forward to, but not this year, I am afraid. We cannot have anything that people could complaint about in the show anymore'

The BBC has already received 15 complaints about the fact that George Alagiah will not be seen in six inch heels this time around.
