A Na Na Na Surprise doll has been slammed as a ‘disgusting’ toy by horrified mum.

The doll comes wrapped as a surprise and you don’t know which doll you will get when you buy the box. 

The dolls come dressed with different styles and underneath their clothes is a bit of surprise.

One mum bought the doll for £23 in B&M Bargains in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, but was disgusted after unwrapping the gift to find the doll dressed in lace underwear with fishnet tights.

Following the complaint, B&M removed the product from sale and apologised to the customer. 

The mum told The Scottish Sun: “It’s a surprise doll so you can’t see what it is when you purchase.

“There’s a selection and it’s just random the type of doll you get you get. They’re dressed differently, they’ve got different styles, if you like.

“But they come with clothes and underneath the clothes they’re wearing what I would say is inappropriate – a lace bra, fishnet tights, ready for a Saturday night.

“I was pretty disgusted. My daughter… was pretty oblivious to the under clothes. There’s a dress as well and a little jacket so she was just excited to put that on.

“But it’s just not something that you would take out in public anyway.”

She added: “I contacted B&M and I contacted what I thought was the manufacturer and both got back and said they were going to be looking into it.”

The mum was offered an apology and a voucher as a gesture of goodwill from the firm.

Others are equally as disturbed as the mum, one Twitter user wrote “why are you marketing dolls in sexy lingerie at young girls?”, another added “yet another example of sexualising our young children”

Gordon Ramsay has angered everyone again with his £56 Sunday roast

Not again…

Gordon Ramsay has done it again, and this time fans are very unimpressed by his £56 Sunday roast. 

The TV chef has already been dragged for serving up a £19 Full English breakfast that was ‘pitiful’, with fans saying ‘where’s the rest of it?’

Someone also left a one-star review on TripAdvisor for ‘five small slices of meat and over salted fries’, aka steak and chips at his restaurant. 

Gordon announced the news of his Sunday lunch at the Savoy Grill in London on Instagram, writing:  “Sunday’s at @SavoyGrillGordonRamsay roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings… absolutely stunning!!”.

Except fans were pretty disappointed that ‘all the trimmings’ didn’t exactly mean ‘all’.

One person wrote: “Is that a child’s portion?”, while another added: “Where’s the rest of it?”

A third person commented: “Error 404. Trimmings not found.”

The worst bit, the restaurant charges £56 for two courses and a drink.

The roast uses ‘prime local produce’ and the ‘precise culinary techniques’ used mean guests can ‘revel in the delights of roast sirloin of beef, seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, followed by a classic Savoy dessert – Baked Alaska’.

The website adds that you can top it off with your choice of ‘Bloody Mary or fruit cocktail’ for a two course experience ‘you’ll remember’.

But not everyone was as mortified as others.

One person pointed out: “If you want shit food and lots of it for a cheap price go to a Toby carvery, if you want quality food from a Michelin star chef it comes with a price!”

Another added: “Oh hell yes!” 

What do you think, would you pay £56 for a roast?

This month, a TikTok star went viral after revealing what Wetherspoons kitchens are really like – but he’s now been suspended. 

The chef, known as J Salsa, posted videos on TikTok showing how Wetherspoons dishes are made, including a Full English, Chicken Korma and Chicken Wraps.

Some items were cooked from fresh such as fried eggs, but others were quite reliant on microwaves, leaving some TikTok users genuinely surprised.

In J Salsa’s latest video, captioned ‘I’m sorry Tim Martin’, he explains he has now been suspended for posting the videos, adding that his actions had been a ‘mistake. 

He explained that when the company’s head office found out, they contacted the pub where he works.

He said: “My manager has had a meeting with me today about the whole thing, the whole situation. They were really calm about it, to be honest.

“They understood and I explained my point of view – it was a mistake.”

He continued: “I didn’t mean to cause no harm to the company. Long story short, I’m suspended until my disciplinary meeting where I will find out if I get fired or not.

“So no more Wetherspoon’s videos for now.”

But J Salsa is committed to the cause and told fans to expect plenty more content, adding: “I still got more though. I’ve got steaks for you, I’ve got burgers for you, but for now I can’t post them until I hear the decision.”
