Have you ever said “bugger” in front of your grandparents and got a scolding, even though it’s not a proper swear word? Well now you have some evidence to back you up and shut them down, because Ofcom, the independent regulator and fun killer for the UK, has said that it is of very little concern, as well as ranking all the other swear words from mild to strong.

Find out where your favourite curse comes on the list below. We don’t know about you, but we didn’t expect “flaps” to come so high on the list...
