Frankie Boyle's infamous joke about the British Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington. Even though this is hardly his most offensive material, he got into a bit of trouble for this one.

N.B. Frankie Boyle WAS NOT fired from Mock The Week and definitely not because of this specific joke. He left the show because the BBC were trying to censor him too much and were cutting out his funniest material, for fear of offending people. Just thought I'd clear that up.

All of the Mock The Week footage is owned by the BBC. I do not own any of this. Uploaded for entertainment and reference purposes only.

Also, if people keep posting ignorant, racist and/or trolling comments on this video, I will disable the comments section. The comments on this video should be relevant please, i.e. your opinion on Frankie Boyle and the controversy which followed, NOT your opinion on immigration, religion, foreign people, global warming or anything in the same vein. Take your debates on current events elsewhere.

Thank you
