Richard Woodard | 25 May 2010

Marks & Spencer’s full-year results mark the swansong of departing executive chairman Sir Stuart Rose – and he celebrated in style with a rather bizarre interview on Radio 4’s flagship Today news programme.

BBC business reporter Adam Shaw asked Sir Stuart the usual moderately searching questions on the headline figures. And then…

Shaw to Sir Stuart: “So, I read in one of the papers that a third of women in the UK wear M&S bras, and a quarter of men wear your underpants…Well, not your underpants, clearly…Sorry – M&S underpants…That really would be a remarkable story…They must be large underpants indeed…”

This is not just a radio news gaffe…This is an M&S radio news gaffe.
