The popstar said 'f*ck' twice during her set at the Radio 1 Big Weekend gig on Saturday, which was broadcast live on BBC3, BBC HD and Radio 1.
During the performance at about 9.35pm on Saturday, she introduced her song Hung Up by holding up a cane and saying, according to a Sun report today: 'You guys are going to have to start f*cking it up out there 'cos I need to feel some love. I'm going to do an old song. But not too old. F*ck the present. Let's live in the past.'
After her performance, the presenter Zane Low apologised: 'An incredible performance....that said, a quick apology for those people who might have found the content offensive.'
A BBC spokeswoman today declined to issue a further apology for Madonna's language on Saturday.
'There was a very strong warning given at the beginning of the show. It was post watershed and at the end of the show Zane Lowe apologised if any offence had been caused,' she added.
