Wandsworth Guardian: Putney boy Jack Whitehall has been criticised Putney boy Jack Whitehall has been criticised

Comedian Jack Whitehall has come under fire following his performance on a panel show.

Whitehall, of Putney, London, caused a furore by making lewd jokes about the Queen on Channel 4's Big Quiz of the Year.

The TV show, first screened on December 29, prompted viewers to complain to broadcaster regulator Ofcom.

It is believed during the show he drank a bottle of wine, which has sparked speculation alcohol was the cause of his behaviour.

In the programme jokes are made about the Queen, Susan Boyle and Barack Obama.

Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt and Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen were also attacked by the comedian.

Whitehall grew up in a six-bedroom house in Putney Common and recently moved to Notting Hill with his girlfriend.
