Sources at the BBC have uncovered, what they say is, evidence that Sir David Jason, the long-time star of shows such as Only Fools And Horses and A Touch Of Frost, is a racist, after he unleashed a torrent of racist abuse and innuendo during a live radio show.

Jason, 69, is alleged to have made a joke on Christian O'Connell's Absolute Radio. Speaking live on air on Tuesday, Sir David said: "What do you call a Pakistani cloakroom attendant?"

After a brief pause, he said: "Mahatma coat."

The joke has outraged Muslim leaders the world over, who have called for a ban on his shows in Pakistan, India, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran. In Afghanistan, only A Touch Of Frost will be banned.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
