A Question Time audience member appeared to expose BBC bias after he claimed it was “quite nice to be invited to a Tory roast”. The remark followed several audience members and panel guests who were highly critical of the Government’s mixed messaging on coronavirus ahead of Christmas. However, it appeared to “hit a nerve” with Fiona Bruce, according to viewers, as the BBC host furiously denied the claim.

The debate programme last night took place in Weston-super-Mare. 

The man, who works for Royal Mail, said: “It’s quite nice to be invited to a Tory roast.

“So I’m quite happy not to have a Christmas Party.”

Ms Bruce responded: “I’m not sure anyone would describe this as a Tory roast. But okay if that is your view.”

Retail entrepreneur and former Dragon from BBC’s Dragons Den Theo Paphitis later responded to the anti-Tory claim.

He said: “Someone said about Tory-bashing. It is not Tory-bashing. It is called frustration from people working and running the economy.

“We can’t just have nonsense and spin when lives are at stake when the economy is at stake.

“We need clear guidance. We’re getting Peppa Pig and spin and that is not good enough.”

Viewers jumped on the audience member’s remarks, with @DanParnell6 tweeting: “A Tory Roast… Did feel a bit little like it tonight. A significant sea change. Have we finally (eventually) had enough?”

@DogAteMyWooki added: “A Tory roast? Holding people to account and getting them to answer for their breaking of the rules they created is important especially when it comes to leading by example.”

@evilattic said that the Tory roast comment “hit a nerve”.

@OGutan3 remarked: “Did you see how offended Fiona Bruce got at the guy calling this a Tory roast?”

This comes amid mixed messaging from the Government amid concerns over the new Covid variant, Omicron.

Ministers have been accused of sending confusing messages about whether people should change their behaviour during Christmas.

Sajid Javid appeared to contradict the Work and Pensions secretary Thérèse Coffey, who earlier warned against kissing strangers under mistletoe.

Mr Javid insisted that “people can snog who they wish”.

Earlier this week it emerged that Mr Johnson attended a leaving party in Downing Street last November, during the second lockdown.

The PM did not deny that festive parties were held but said “all guidance was followed”.
