Vicki Michelle Says Sitcoms Are Being ‘Atomized’ As Hit BBC Series ‘Allo’ Allo Gets Offensive Warning

‘Comedy will be atomized’: Vicki Michelle, 71, says sitcoms are being destroyed when her hit BBC series ‘Allo’ Allo receives an offensive warning

Vicki Michelle claimed “comedy is being atomized” when her former sitcom was slammed with an offensive warning at the start of the show.

The ‘Allo’ Allo star, 71, who played waitress Yvette Carte-Blanche, can’t believe producers think ‘people making love under a sheet’ can be shown on TV, but a comedy Sitcom can seem offensive.

The 1980s BBC sitcom actress celebrated the 40th anniversary of the first episode of ‘Allo’. Allo has now realized how culture has changed after some comedy reruns were removed from television.

Wow: Vicki Michelle claimed ‘comedy is being atomized’ when her former sitcom was slammed with an offensive warning at the start of the show

She said: “Comedy is being neutralized – or atomized. I think 80% of this country would love a repeat of comedy like Allo, so 20% could object to some content.

“But people are eff, blind and use the C-word on TV and that’s considered fine. And on reality TV, people make love under a sheet, and that’s okay. There was none of that in ‘Allo ‘Allo. We kept low profile, hugged instead of kissing, and used nicknames used during the war when the show was canceled. I don’t think there’s anything in there that would upset a normal person.”

Vicky went on to explain how the show’s writer, David Croft, described the characters he created, citing the French as “horny”, the German as “perverted” and the English as “stupid”.

The star was pointed out by her 33-year-old daughter that she can’t say certain things to people anymore, leaving her “worried” she’ll upset someone if she was just trying to laugh.

The hit series “Allo” Allo produced 87 episodes and was watched by millions in 60 different countries from 1982 to 1992.

The late leading actor Gordon Kaye, who suffered serious brain injuries when a piece of wood slammed through his windshield during a storm in 1990, was greatly missed at the reunion.

The star died in 2017 at the age of 75 after being diagnosed with dementia two years earlier.

At the reunion, Vicki shared some of her old tips as she tried to keep a straight face during skits.

She said: “We were like family – it was a pleasure to come to work. We laughed so much while reading that tears rolled down our faces. When we performed in front of a live audience, the writers didn’t air the skit unless we laughed. So it was hard to keep a straight face – I stuck my nail in my finger to keep from laughing.

The presenter is also known for her recurring character Patricia Foster on the ITV soap opera Emmerdale.
