Nigel Farage has hit out at Channel 4 over an episode of a comedy show in which satirical character Neil Fromage is shot dead while giving a speech on immigration.

The leader of the Brexit Party described the scene in the fourth episode of Victorian-era sitcom Year of the Rabbit as “sick and frankly irresponsible”.

In the episode, Neil Fromage, a right-wing campaigner, is shot in the head while giving a speech on the dangers of immigration.

In response to the episode, Mr Farage told the Daily Star Sunday: “This scene is totally sick and frankly irresponsible.”

He added: “I think with Channel 4 we have reached a point where they are so partisan politically in everything they do that they now consistently go beyond what’s acceptable.”

The episode of the sitcom starring Matt Berry is due to air on Channel 4 on Monday. However it is currently available to watch on Sky’s on-demand service Now TV.
