BBC’s Alex Scott beat up a colleague who criticized her accent during Olympic coverage when she said she was “working class and proud”.

The former Arsenal star, 36, came under fire from Lord Digby Jones, a former government minister, who suggested she needed “consultation hours”.

The peer in the House of Lords said, “Enough! I can not take it anymore!

“Alex Scott spoils good presentation work on the BBC Olympics team with her very evident inability to pronounce her ‘g’s at the end of a word.

“The competitors do NOT participate in fencin, rowin, boxin, kayakin, weightliftin & swimin, Alex.”

But Ms. Scott slammed the former minister and responded to the tweets: “I come from a working class family in East London, Poplar, Tower Hamlets and I am PROUD.

“Proud of the young girl who overcame obstacles and proud of my accent! It’s me, it’s my journey, my courage. ‘

She said, “Use your story to write your story. Keep trying, keep shining and don’t change for anyone. “

The 36-year-old added, “Tweets like this just give me the energy to keep going. See you tomorrow … live on BBC Baby. “
