London- A spokesman admitted that the broadcaster had "got it seriously wrong" by commissioning hipsters to make its much criticised documentary series 'Welcome To Rio'. Police are understood to be no closer to identifying the whereabouts of the dangerously irritating Cleo Rocos whose excruciating voiceover for the series is being held directly responsible for the hospitalisation of a large number of members of the public who are of a sensitive disposition.
Several people held at hospitals across the UK had to undergo foot amputations after their toes curled inwards during the programme causing catastrophic injuries . One man chewed his hand off.
"We in the Favela.. eh sorry, in the BBC apologise for this show. We wanted to show life in the favelas but instead we got taken in by the pushiest of the locals and romanticised them out of all proportion. That was probably racist of us. " The spokesman also apologised for showing a photo of Margaret Thatcher out of context.
However, the show is understood to have won an admirer in PM David Cameron. "Yeah call me Dave, Big Society. I was charmed at the thought of thousands of poor people living without health or social protection in shanty towns on hillsides. This is the type of Big Society I want to see in Britain where my mates in the weapons industry sell automatic sidearms to the underclass who then can wipe eachother out! Big Society!"
