Celebrities were queing up on Twitter to blast the BBC's coverage of the Diamond Jubilee.


Fry wrote: "Has the BBC ever presented a more mind-numbingly tedious programme in its history? "HRH the queen" said the first ignorant presenter. HRH?".


Jonathan Dimbleby suggested viewers should contact BBC Radio 4's Any Questions asking if 'BBC bigwigs' had lost the plot.


Camera angles and sound quality were also said to have been not up to scratch while a mistaken description of the Queen as "HRH" - rather than "Her Majesty" - also drew flak.

Jonathan Ross tweeted: 'Was it just me or did the Beebs coverage of the Jubilee Big Boat Challenge feel like a 5 hour episode of the One Show. Gak.'
