Thatcher - the fun just keeps on coming

Carol Thatcher made multiple references describing a French mixed-race tennis player as a "golliwog", "half-golliwog" and "golliwog Frog", sources say.
Thatcher, dropped from BBC1's The One Show after the programme said she refused to adequately apologise for her comments in the programme green room, made multiple remarks in front of 12 people, including presenter Adrian Chiles, comedian Jo Brand and a representative from the Comic Relief charity.
Today, The One Show insiders confirmed a story in the Times that reported that Thatcher had made variations on her comment several times in the green room.
"'Golliwog' wasn't the half of it, it is much worse than what has come out," a programme source told

Here's the clincher. Apparently, Carol Thatcher is working on an appearance on "Who do you think you are?"

Answer on a postcard please.
