BBC Three chose to cut out Frankie Boyle's controversial set from the Give It Up Gig for Comic Relief broadcast last night (March 6).
The show was pre-recorded earlier in the evening and during the editing process, Boyle's routine was pulled.
Writing on Twitter after his set, Boyle said: "Was a nice gig at Wembley, and big up Russell Brand – a shot in the arms for addicts everywhere."
Jason Manford used the gig as a chance to poke fun at his recent sex scandal troubles, pointing out that it was ironic to be performing a "comic relief" gig. »
