Prank row: Georgina Baillie's reaction

Georgina Baillie, the woman at the centre of the BBC phone prank row, gave The Sun's website her reaction to the suspension of Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross:

I'm thrilled because justice has been done. Let's see what Ofcom choose to do about it. I don't know how it's going to go from here but I'm really happy with the investigation.

Me and my granddad (Andrew Sachs) are both really happy because this could have damaged our relationship permanently. So I'm really glad it's all over with as far as I'm concerned.

It's despicable (how Brand and Ross have behaved). Calling me that in public, not only does it damage my relationship with my granddad but it could permanently damage my life as well. I'm just glad it's all over with and that everyone can move on.

I'm disgusted. Again, why would they (the BBC) do that (use the answer phone message) when he (Sachs) said it was not okay? When Russell left me the voicemail telling me that they'd done it and it was over with, I was like, it's gone out and there's nothing I can do.

But the fact that it was pre-recorded and someone could have made the decision not to air it and my granddad didn't want it to be aired either, I think it's just awful and something should be done about it.

I'm sure he (Sachs) is as happy as I am about them being suspended. He just wants to get on with his life now, and so do I.
