Colin Murray on Clare Balding: 'The second I said it I knew it was too much'

26 August 2013 4:43 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The TalkSport host speaks for the first time about his regrets over the comments he made on 5Live's Fighting Talk

Appropriately for the man who used to present BBC Radio 5 Live show Fighting Talk, Colin Murray is in combative mood. Since transferred to 5 Live's commercial rival TalkSport, where he presents a three-hour weekday show, Murray says his new employer is a place where he can "be myself without every so often spasmodically having to deal with the shit of the outraged few".

This is a barely-veiled reference to his final episode of Fighting Talk, on 1 June this year, when the panel show was accused of "homophobic bullying" after a contestant was invited to advance reasons why if given "20 minutes with her, I'm pretty sure I could turn around Clare Balding".

It was intended as satire, a "mockery of idiot views" as Murray put it, in a round called Defend The Indefensible. »
