UK media regulator Ofcom is reviewing the show to determine whether it broke British broadcasting standards after Osbourne’s expletive was broadcast to the nation on February 10.
Good Morning Britain cut to the Vanity Fair party, but Osbourne did not realize her mic was still hot and she could be heard muttering “f**k” during a conversation in the make-shift studio at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Host Morgan immediately apologized. He said: “I’d just like to make an immediate, early apology for some profanity that may have been heard earlier.”
Jokingly, he added: “You’ll be unsurprised to hear that Sharon Osbourne, it took her, well it’s 27 minutes into the show, three minutes into Sharon Osbourne’s appearance on the program and we already have to issue a formal apology.”
An Ofcom spokesman said: “We are investigating whether this program broke our rules on offensive language.”
