The BBC has responded to complaints about Miranda Hart and Jon Holmes's recent stint on BBC Radio 2.

The pair, who have previously hosted comedy specials on the station, spent the past week standing in for Chris Evans, but some listeners were unhappy with the quality of the show.

In a statement, the BBC responded by saying: "Miranda Hart is one of the UK's best-loved comedians and BBC Radio 2 felt it appropriate to bring her warmth to its audience for a week. Jon Holmes is a highly experienced presenter from BBC Radio 6 Music.

"BBC Radio 2 is proud to be the home of many popular entertainers and presenters and as part of the network's scheduling, from time to time, the channel tries new presenters and styles of shows.

"BBC Radio 2 appreciates if their presentation wasn't to everyone's liking, but feels it's important to be able to bring new talent to its output and hopes its audience understands the importance of maintaining a breadth of content on the network."

Hart recently insisted that her sitcom Miranda isn't a middle-class comedy.
