Jonathan Ross has been suspended from all BBC shows without pay for 12 weeks following the prank calls row.
It follows comments made by Ross and Russell Brand on Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs voicemail as they were on Brand's Radio 2 show. Russell Brand has resigned from his Radio 2 programme.
Sachs was upset after Brand and Ross left a series of lewd messages on his voicemail as part of a pre-recorded show, taped on 16 October. The show was broadcast two days later. The pair made obscene comments about the actor's 23-year-old granddaughter Georgina Baillie during four separate phone calls.
An extract fromone of the messages: As Brand begins to leave a message, Ross blurts out: "He fucked your granddaughter... I'm sorry I apologise. Andrew, I apologise, I got excited, what can I say - it just came out."
Prime Minister Gordon Brown calls the incident "clearly inappropriate and unacceptable".
The total number of complaints has passed 27,000, reports BBC.
