The Blue Peter cat apology

Anyone who saw Zoe and Konnie apologise for the Blue Peter cat-naming competition irregularities could be wondering if the apology was sincere.

Smugness, rather than contrition, was the order of the day. Blue Peter viewers weren't given any explanation for what happened, and instead the programme imagined it could clear the air by introducing another kitten - this time called Cookie. They weren't even prepared to let kids choose a name this time round. 'Socks' still bears the name not chosen by the majority who took part in the poll last year.
