Russell Brand has recruited some of Britain's favourite comedians for his Comic Relief fundraising concert Give It Up at London's Wembley Arena on Wednesday night.

But one of those comedian's - controversial funnyman Frankie Boyle - jokes never made it onto the BBC Three when an edited version of the show aired at 10pm.

Why? According to the 'Daily Mail', his jibes about the Queen and Kate Middleton were so "disgusting" they could not be aired.

The paper reports: "The Scottish 'funnyman' was booed by the crowd as he joked he wished the Queen had died, and made an unprintable gag about how Kate fell pregnant."

However, one person who was there told The Huffington Post UK: "The booing was very ironic, sort of like pantomime booing. Generally people were in fits of laughter. They seemed to understand it was just an act."

He added: "Boyle even said there's no way the BBC will show this".

Referring to the monarch's recent hospital stay for gastroenteritis, Boyle reportedly said: "I wish the Queen had died the night before the Royal Jubilee - I wish she'd just f***ing died.

"But they wouldn't have been able to tell us that she'd died. They would have had to hollow out her body and get that guy who plays Gollum to wear it."

Despite his stand-up performance being cut from the televised version of the show, Boyle seemed to enjoy the gig:

Was a nice gig at Wembley, and big up Russell Brand. A shot in the arms for addicts everywhere.

Meanwhile, Brand said he had put together the "perfect bill" for his anti-addiction concert with acts including Noel Gallagher, Rizzle Kicks, Nicole Scherzinger, Jake Bugg, Paloma Faith, Jimmy Carr and Eddie Izzard.

He claimed organising the gig was "demanding but also very rewarding," and added: "Like most thrusting endeavours around the pelvic region it's taxing but worthwhile. I think it's like the perfect bill".

Gallagher said he only got involved because "Brand got on his knees and grovelled".

Faith said taking part was just the latest in a long line of fund-raising stunts for Comic Relief.

She said: "I feel terrible every year that it's on if I don't do something so from my schooldays to now I've always done something. I've been dressed as a tomato at school, I've bathed in beans and this is actually a lot easier, I'm just doing what I do for a living".

Earlier this week, Brand said he was inspired to organise the event in memory of Amy Winehouse, who he believed could have been saved if she had received the right support.

Money raised from ticket sales is going to help support people affected by drug and alcohol addiction.
