News: Ofcom Receives Complaints About Rosie Jones' Greta Thunberg Joke on The Last Leg

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom has received complaints about a joke about Greta Thunberg told by comedian Rosie Jones on the Last Leg's New Year's Eve Special on Channel 4.

On the show, fronted by Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker, Jones said: "Greta's amazing and what she's doing is brilliant. But don't do it now. She needs to live a little, she's only 16. She should be doing two things - drinking Lambrini and getting fingered."

According to reports Ofcom has received 22 complaints about the remark so far. Some of the audience laughed but others gasped. Fellow guest Sara Pascoe responded by sayng: "I feel like we should apologise. She's trying to save all our lives."
