Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SCOTS fun­ny­man Frankie Boyle has had a new chat show axed by killjoy bosses for be­ing too RUDE.

The con­tro­ver­sial comic ( above) recorded a pi­lot of a talk show called Frankie Boyle’s Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Pro­gramme.

Speak­ing about the show Chan­nel 4’s head of com­edy Shane Allen said: “It’s very much like Parkin­son or Wo­gan, but with paedo jokes.”

The show was meant to fea­ture Boyle in a “se­ries of funny, in­formed de­bates with celebri­ties and mem­bers of the public”.

But af­ter record­ing just one episode bosses de­cided it was too out­ra­geous and have shelved it.

Frankie, 39, caused outrage when he in­sulted Jor­dan’s dis­abled son Har­vey on his pre­vi­ous show Tra­madol Nights, which has now been axed.
