The granddaughter of Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs has called for Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand to be sacked for their lewd phone calls on Radio 2.
Georgina Baillie, 23, also threatened that she could make an official complaint to police, but admitted she had slept with Russell.
She branded the high-earning presenters ‘cruel sickos’ for leaving a series of crude messages on her grandfather’s answerphone during a pre-recorded radio show. They included boasts from Russell about his sexual relationship with her and jokes from the DJs that the veteran actor, who played Manuel in the popular comedy, might kill himself as a result of the revelation.
The BBC has received more than 10,000 complaints since the broadcast, which has also prompted an official investigation from media watchdog Ofcom and drawn widespread condemnation from a range of figures including the Prime Minister.
In an interview with the Sun, Georgina said: “What’s funny about humiliating a lovely old man who has never harmed anyone in his life? My grandfather is really upset and says he wants the whole situation to end.
“I will be speaking to him to ask whether we should complain to the police and we’ll be making the decision as a family.
“They (Brand and Ross) should at least pay for what they’ve done with their jobs.”
Aspiring model Georgina also said that the Radio 2 bosses who allowed the DJs’ on-air calls to be broadcast should also go.
She added that she felt ‘totally and utterly exposed and betrayed’ by the calls.
