BBC 'right' to sack Danny Baker over tweet says presenter

The BBC was "right" to sack presenter Danny Baker over his "royal baby" image of a chimp, says Scarlette Douglas, a presenter on 5 Live podcast The Sista Collective.

Baker apologised, claiming it was an "ill thought, stupid" joke.

But Douglas told BBC News: "I don't think it was an apology, yes, he took it down but it wasn't an apology."
