Who is Frankie Boyle?

Frankie Boyle is a 45-year-old comedian from Glasgow, known for his sadistic sense of humour and controversial comments.

On television, he was most known for being a permanent panellist of Mock the Week – a comedy show that looks back on news topics from the week before.

He was on the show for four years, but eventually left after his jokes drew in complaints.


Frankie caused outrage back in 2010 when he made vicious comments at the expense of Katie Price’s eldest son, Harvey, then aged eight.

Harvey has been diagnosed with a list of conditions including Prader-Willi Syndrome, blindness and autism, and is registered disabled.

The comment received more than 500 complaints to Ofcom, who ruled Channel 4 had breached broadcasting rules.
