Comic Relief cans Jade Goody sketch

'Out of date' skit binned

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Comic Relief organisers have canned a Question of Sport spoof featuring Celebrity Big Brother "contestant" Jade Goody.

According to a Comic Relief spokesman, this is because the sketch felt "out of date" and "they were concerned it could detract attention from the fundraising".

The spokesman explained: "Recent events have overtaken us and the show, which was recorded last November, now feels out of date. Red Nose Day is all about raising money and anything that could potentially detract from this is not helpful."

Goody provoked a bit of a rumpus in Celebrity Big Brother with her allegedly racist treatment of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. Shetty went on to become a major UK celeb while Goody checked into the Priory for a spot of light rehab.

Comic Relief hits TV screens on 16 March. ®
