The BBC have responded following Brian Harvey’s bizarre YouTube rant, in which he criticised Radio 1 and made a number of shocking allegations.

Commenting on a YouTube video of Rae Morris covering East 17’s ‘Stay Another Day’, Brian wrote: “BBC Radio One, you will play anything else as long as its not me eh!!

“Radio One you suck f***ing a*** you bunch of w******.”

The singer then went on to a make a number of comments, that have prompted a response from the BBC.

“Everybody is scared to tell you, but Im not. You f***ing paedo protecting, s*** music playing, corporate w***stain f*** heads,” he wrote, later branding them a "sh***y commercial poo bag station".

A BBC spokeswoman has issued a statement to The Sun, which reads: “These comments are clearly absurd and offensive.”

Brian’s comments have now been deleted, but a number of Twitter users have already screen-grabbed the outburst.

In recent months, Brian has hit headlines with his bizarre behaviour and last week, he released a new video online.

His cover of ‘German Whip’ included a number of line changes, and references to an incident in 2005, when he accidentally ran himself over following a jacket potato binge.

Earlier this month, he shared another vid online, in which he smashed up his platinum discs.

In the short clip, entitled ‘Fuck The Industry’, the 40-year-old is seen in an alleyway carrying a commemorative plaque awarded for 1 million East 17 sales.

Before smashing it to pieces, the singer turns to the camera and says: “East 17 one million sales – this is what it means. That’s what I think of your fucking music industry.”
