But anyone wanting to catch a slice of the 1980s Sunday night staple will be greeted with a message saying it contains “language and attitudes of the era that may offend”.

A TV insider said: “This will mark a new low for audiences who are fed up with being warned about upsetting language in shows which couldn’t be more gentle.

“Hi-de-Hi! is a particularly inoffensive comedy that used to keep millions of ordinary Brits in stitches on a Sunday night.

“They’ll struggle to remember any upsetting language or attitudes, certainly none that would affect anyone other than the biggest snowflakes.”

The move comes after Britbox slapped a similar warning on other vintage comedy shows including ’Allo ’Allo, One Foot in the Grave and Fawlty Towers.

The Good Life even appeared with an alert that one episode contained “offensive racial imagery” and Keeping Up Appearances was flagged over a scene featuring xenophobia to a Polish person.

Hi-de-Hi! ran from 1980 to 1989 and came from writers Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who had already enjoyed success with Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum.

It featured a team of so-called yellowcoats trying to keep visitors entertained in a fictional camp called Maplins in Crimpton-on-Sea.


It ran for nine series and made stars out of Ruth, who as Gladys Pugh made the daily “Hi-de-Hi!” greeting over the public speakers and Su, who played Peggy Ollerenshaw, a cleaner desperate to be one of the yellowcoats.
