Fern Britton's Mohamed-teddy moment

At the Comedy Awards last night - in TV purdah over the phoneline scandals - This Morning host Fern Britton sauntered on stage with someone dressed up as a bear, said to be the Turner Prize winner. "He's called Mohamed," she quipped in reference to teddygate. The audience howled with laughter, worryingly.

J Ross had already made same joke earlier and got a laugh too. Felt a bit sorry for Fern as she'd clearly planned it and the comedians are such a polite bunch - no, really - that they were happy to support anyone's jokes who wasn't a professional.

(It came across as a bit patronising to be honest)

Fern Britton is on the cover of Woman's Own every week. I suppose some clipboard Nazis got a focus group together and identified Fern as the woman most like the readers, or most liked by them. Who would envy the editor's job these days?
