Classic 80s sitcom Hi-de-Hi! has been hit with a new trigger warning.

Now available to watch on Britbox, viewers of the former Sunday night chapter will see a warning message of “language and attitudes of the era that may be offensive,” The Sun reports.
A TV insider said: ‘This will be another low for audiences tired of being warned about disturbing language in shows that couldn’t be kinder.

‘LANGUAGE MAY DECIDE’: BEAT SITCOMS WITH WARNINGS
A host of sitcoms have been slammed with trigger warnings on platform Britbox, including:
- One foot in the grave
- Fawlty Towers
- ‘Allo’ Allo
- The good life
- Keeping up appearances
‘Hi-de-Hello! is a particularly harmless comedy that used to fool millions of ordinary Britons on a Sunday night.
“They’ll have a hard time remembering any disturbing language or attitude, certainly none that could hit anyone but the biggest snowflakes.”
Other classic shows like ‘Allo’ All, One Foot in the Grave and Fawlty Towers are how similar alerts are triggered.
Another warning about “offensive racial imagery” appeared in an episode of the 1970s comedy The Good Life.
in the comedy, Su Pollard played Peggy Ollerenshaw, the wacky girl who aspired to be a Yellowcoat and tried every possible way to get involved in the camp’s entertainment.
While her character was known for her 80s frizzy hair and oversized glasses, the actress – now 71 – became known in real life for her flamboyant sense of dress.
Elsewhere in the show, RADA-trained actress Ruth Madoc received a BAFTA for playing Gladys Pugh, the Chief Yellowcoat with the tagline “morning campers!”
Gladys harbored an unrequited passion for Simon Cadell’s Jeffrey Fairbrother, describing theirs as a “great comedy partnership.”
