The series earned the dubious distinction of earning the most Ofcom complaints of 2011, when the media regulator received 2,220 complaints after Wright made a misjudged joke about a murdered Scottish teenager during a newspaper review. This came only two months after Wright was forced to make an on-air apology the day after hosting a controversial phone-in about Amanda Knox titled "Foxy Knoxy: Would Ya?" following her successful appeal against her murder conviction.

Matthew Wright and 3 panelists discuss what's going on in Britain
Witty, bright - something to get your brain going in the morning! Very popular with students apparently (myself included!) Starting off with a summary of the morning papers and then three topical discussion points.
There's usually a serious topic - domestic violence, the war on terror to name a couple; something funny and light-hearted - back to the stocks for youth offenders!; and something in between.
The new extended show (90 minutes) includes a (usually) health section with an expert from the field discussing anything from diet, sex, relationships, wine, food and even pets with love life problems on a Friday.
The banter between Matthew Wright and the panel guests (and the callers and audience) is funny, witty, and I challenge you not to be joining in the discussion from your armchair! Watch out for Wrighty complaining about coppers nabbing him on his bike in the park! V funny!
