Pass the carbolic soap! That's what journalist Quentin Letts is calling for after Helen Mirren turned the air blue at an awards ceremony.

The actress launched into an expletive filled acceptance speech at the Glamour awards recently. AND - Quentin claims there's too much female coarseness, particularly from actresses.
