In series two, episode three, he watches DIY show Changing Rooms and calls host Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen a “nancy boy”.

Warnings have also been slapped on Fawlty Towers, Allo Allo! and Dad’s Army.

Robin Aitken, a BBC worker for 25 years, blasted: “More wokeness.

“Combing archives to ensure shows are politically correct is sinister and laughable.”

A TV fan tweeted: “Just another nail in the coffin of this ridiculous broadcaster.”

A BBC spokesman said: “Some older programmes on occasion contain language that some viewers find offensive, inappropriate or which have now fallen out of use, and for that reason, we do make that clear on BBC iPlayer and elsewhere.”

Toby Young, General Secretary of the Free Speech Union, said: “The BBC has been been taken over by the ‘woke’ cult. Its managers are like 17th Century Witchfinder Generals, constantly on the look out for heretics. 

"Any programmes that depart from their narrow ideological dogma are immediately slapped with a moral health warning. Someone needs to remind them that Britain is the birthplace of Parliamentary democracy and the licence-payers who pay their wages believe in free speech.”
