The BBC has responded after viewers accused AJ Odudu of breaking the broadcaster’s advertising rules.
The 35-year-old co-host of ITV2’s Big Brother revival was a guest on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show and was participating in the Send To All segment when she mentioned her Google Pixel phone, which she has promoted in several adverts and Instagram posts.
Viewers reckoned AJ was sneakily plugging the Google Pixel phone, but it turns out no rules were broken.
A BBC Spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “Ahead of the broadcast of the programme, it was confirmed to the BBC that AJ Odudu was no longer under contract to promote any smartphone-related organisations.”
Asked why she didn’t use an iPhone, AJ replied: “It’s a Google Pixel. Actually, a few years ago I thought, iPhones every time I dropped one the screen would smash.”
