The BBC has issued an apology after host Amol Rajan was photographed in the backseat of a taxi without a seatbelt.

In a documentary titled How to Crack the Class Ceiling, the host was seen in a car driving through central London without a seatbelt.

The show follows a media editor, 39, looking for tips and tricks to help working-class students land the best jobs in the UK.

In a statement, the broadcaster said:

“This was a mistake I apologize for. It’s against the law not to use your seatbelt when you have one.

Last year, it was announced that media editor Amol would replace Jeremy. Paxman on the BBC2 quiz show University Challenge.

Amol described the opportunity to host the University Challenge as “dream come true.”

“I’ve been obsessed with the University Challenge for years. I’m obsessed with its high standards, brilliant title music, and inspirational contestants,” he said.

“This is the best antidote to the cynicism of the young and the millions of us who test our wits against the new generation’s best minds, annoy and impress our families by barking the answers from our couches. can do.

He went on to say he was “aware” of following in the footsteps of the late great Bamber Gascoigne, who passed away last year, and Jeremy Paxman, who spearheaded the program for 28 years.

Amol will step down when he assumes his role as media editor for the BBC, but will retain his position as host of Radio 4’s Today Programme.

He also praised Jeremy for having a vast shoe to fill and stating that he would dedicate his first starter to the previous presenter for $10.

Amor will hit the screens this fall.

How to Crack the Class Ceiling is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
