They re­turned to TV last year to take aim at Ju­lia Gil­lard and Tony Ab­bott with Yes We Can­berra! Now they have Prince Wil­liam and Kate Mid­dle­ton in their sights.

‘‘ The Chaser couldn’t be more thrilled to be cov­er­ing the big day.

Let’s face it, The Chaser’s Royal Wed­ding Com­men­tary couldn’t be worse than Balls of Steel. What was Craig Reu­cas­sel think­ing when he agreed to that? The Aussie ver­sion of the UK prank show is an ab­so­lute shocker. That show should elim­i­nate Reu­cas­sel from send­ing up any­one else for the rest of his life.

Come to think of it, fel­low Chaser Andrew Hansen should be banned for life as well af­ter fronting Strictly Speak­ing last year.
