Danny Baker has been FIRED from his BBC Radio 5 Live over a ‘racist’ royal baby tweet.

The radio host had tweeted then deleted an image comparing the newborn Archie Harrison to a chimpanzee.

“Just got fired from @bbc5live. For the record – it was red sauce. Always,” he tweeted this morning.

In an email sent to all 5 Live staff, controller Jonathan Wall said: “Danny made a serious error of judgement on social media last night and it goes against the values we live and breathe on this radio station.”
