The BBC has announced that over 4,000 have now complained over jubilee coverage.
The Guardian reports that 4,487 had complained to the BBC about their diamond jubilee coverage by Friday afternoon.
The main bulk of the complaints has being about the River Thames pageant which took place on Sunday to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.
BBC defended their coverage by pointing out the high viewing figures over the extended bank holiday weekend. Much of the press lambasted the BBC for their decision to include celebrities for trivial features during the 4 hour event.
The complaints were featured in this week’s BBC Newswatch programme, although no officials were available for comment on the programme.
Fearne Cotton, who was prominent during the coverage, has branded those who criticised her work as ‘bullies’.
