Explosive chutney is butt of TV jokes

ANYONE who watched the Christmas special edition of Mock The Week will surely have recognised the reference to one particular news story from the past year.

It was about Margaret Goodwin’s exploding jar of chutney which blew off the door of her fridge at her home in Homelands Way, Henley.

It was featured on the front page of the Henley Standard in July and then in national newspapers here and abroad, which is how it came to appear on the BBC’s satirical quiz show.

Host Dara O Briain asked the two teams of comedians: “What caused chaos and destruction in a flat in Henley?”

Chris Addison replied “Boris Johnson?”
