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).

Hosted by Russell Brand, the evening's entertainment included comedy from Eddie Izzard, Jimmy Carr, Simon Amstell and Jason Manford and music from Nicole Scherzinger, Noel Gallagher and Jake Bugg.

The show was pre-recorded earlier in the evening and during the editing process, Boyle's routine was pulled.

Boyle made jokes at the show about Kate Middleton's breasts, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Oscar Pistorius and a reference to the Jimmy Savile scandal.

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. »
