Enough Effing Swearing

“X Factor” judge and former Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger may have substituted the word “effing” in place of the actual swear word, but that still didn’t placate UK television regulator Ofcom.

“I’m so proud, this is James effing Arthur,” Scherzinger told viewers as she introduced her act.

Ofcom received 52 complaints about this pre-watershed slip-up, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Ofcom said it considered the term to be an example of “offensive language” and deemed it unsuitable.

In even more trouble could be former “X Factor” judge Tulisa Contostavlos, who was reportedly arrested over allegations of supplying hard drugs.

The arrest came after The Sun ran a story claiming the 24-year-old had acted as a go-between in a cocaine deal.

The Metropolitan Police said a 24-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man were arrested “on suspicion of being concerned with the supply of class A drugs” and being questioned.

Police in Britain do not usually name suspects who have not been charged. The BBC and other major media outlets identified the suspect as Contostavlos, who came to fame with London group N-Dubz.

She was recently replaced as a judge on TV talent show “X Factor” by Sharon Osbourne.
