The BBC was yesterday accused of ‘outrageous’ political correctness after changing the words to a nursery rhyme on a children’s show.

CBeebies programme Something Special altered the words to Humpty Dumpty and gave it a more cheerful ending.

Instead of being unable to ‘put Humpty together again’, the new version claimed all the King’s horses and all the King’s men ‘made Humpty happy again’.

‘This is an unnecessary and outrageous piece of political correctness directed at young children.’
