Has anyone been following the story about Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross leaving messages on Andrew Sachs' (Fawlty Towers' Manuel) answerphone?

I wasn't to start with but when I opened up my internet homepage, I saw a couple of things about it on there and decided to have a look. Long story short, Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross left messages saying that Brand had slept with Sachs' granddaughter Georgina Baillie, amongst other silly comments they also left. You can read a condensed transcript of the conversation here.
While this is incorrect to do anyway, they did it on a radio show on the BBC, which is completely inappropriate and unprofessional. They do deserve to be punished and they should both give sincere apologies to Sachs and probably Baillie as well.

However, Georgina Baillie has now hit out at Brand and Ross, saying that they should be sacked for what they did. Look. Ok, I see where you're coming from and it's all very well to say that you want them punished for saying it, but you then don't admit to actually sleeping with one of the people involved! It rather blunts your complaint if you then admit that you actually did what they're saying! Seriously, talk about double standards.

I'm not saying that Ross and Brand were right to have done what they did. In my opinion they are in the wrong, regardless of whether it's true or not, because they shouldn't have made the phonecalls in the first place, but perhaps we should hear all the facts before this goes much further.
