    He did go over the top ... but he is known for pushing it as far as he can. Still, he has moved on from the show and it is unlikely that others will push things as far as he did.

    She's far too important for humour these days, don't you know

    Can't remember that episode though, might have a swing through iPlayer later

    Humour is, after all, always at someone else's expense. Without people to mock, there'd be no comedy. And no comedy would make us, well, not British!

    I can still recall (vaguely) his comment about the Queen and certain areas of her person. I don't recall her complaining

    Just google - 'Rebecca Adlington mock the week' - and the top video is the one it's all about.
    Rather tame from FB if you ask me. Maybe she should watch HIGNFY to see the stick Brown, Cameron & the rest of that lot get before having a whinge the silly woman.

    She does need to lighten up a bit, it was a joke, he wasnt really being nasty about it. Most people in the public eye get the p1ss taken out of their appearance or actions at some point

    You can mock me if you like - by the way can I borrow your face for a few days ? My bum is going on holiday.

    Joke in full

    “Rebecca Adlington looks pretty weird. She looks like someone who’s looking at themselves in the back of a spoon. And then, when she arrived back on the flight [from the China Olympics], she met her boyfriend. Did you see her boyfriend? He was really attractive. He was like a male model. So from that I have deduced that Rebecca Adlington is very dirty. I mean, if you just take into account how long she can hold her breath…”

    There you go, not really that bad??
