He now gets moved to the dining room after the 9pm watershed, so the TV swearing “doesn’t set him off”.

Owner Adam Padgett, 52, even has to watch his own language when his pet is in earshot as Page will pick up on anything rude.

Adam said: “He’ll say ‘F*** off’, ‘For f***’s sake’, ‘F*** that’ and all that sort of stuff. I think he learned it off TV — and us. I am a bit of a swearer.”

He said his grandkids tell on the parrot’s profanities when they come round and say he has been using “naughty words”.

Adam bought the bird for £650 as a three-month-old chick ten years ago.

Adam explained: “He picks up on it and just says it. He’s been doing it since about a year old. When he first started we kept saying, ‘Is he swearing?'."

Page also says “Go away now I’m not in the mood”, “Shut up”, “Right, I’m off”, and “I’m a sexy boy”.

Adam, of Wakefield, West Yorks, hinzugefügt: “He was always telling the dog to go outside. He did as he was told but was so confused.”
