Nick Ferrari rows with guest who says Stacey Dooley was in the wrong

.

Nick Ferrari, had what some thought, was a common sense response to one guest, who who claimed that the former Strictly star Stacey Dooley, was creating a "pervasive narrative" of Africa with her trip to Uganda as part of Comic Relief.

Dr. Alice Evans, a lecturer in International Development at King's College London, told the radio host that the Instagram photo of the celebrity holding a black child encourages stereotypes of Africa.

She told Nick: "I'm raising caution about how Africa is represented. The idea of a white adult holding a black child. It's always a black child."

But the LBC presenter shot back, saying that: "That's what you're going to find in Africa, isn't it?"

Dr Evans then told listeners: "It's pervasive, there's a single narrative about Africa...", however the LBC host disagreed: "No it's not. It's a well-meaning celebrity who has been going to Uganda for over 10 years holding a little boy. That's all it is, doctor."

The Catch-Up: How the Comic Relief race row escalated
David Lammy has responded to criticism of his description of Stacey Dooley over her work on a film in Uganda for Red Nose Day. The Labour MP claimed the world did not need "any more white saviours" after the Strictly Come Dancing star was pictured holding an African child. Mr Lammy said that the term "white saviour" comes from Victorian times, "when the white man or woman turned up in Africa, picked a young child from poverty, and did very little about the surrounding issues". The Member for Tottenham said Comic Relief needed to be "in greater partnership with the continent of Africa", suggesting they film live from Africa on the night and use African filmmakers.
Dan Walker, Shirley Ballas and Ed Balls are among the celebrities making the 19,000ft ascent for charity.
