Katy Brand's fury at ITV

Broadcaster failed to put her forward for comedy award

Katy Brand has slammed ITV after they failed to enter her for the British Comedy Awards for the second year running.

She launched a furious attack on the broadcaster over Twitter after she learned she couldn’t be in the running for any award because the broadcaster failed to put her name forward.

She Tweeted: ‘For the 2ND YEAR IN A ROW, ITV has FORGOTTEN to submit my Comedy Awards longlong list nomination form, so not even in the running. Thanks ITV.

‘I'm not saying I would have made the shortlist, but once again ITV has prevented me even having a chance by not being fucking arsed.

‘I didn't say anything about it last year because I thought it would look ungracious, but AGAIN ITV? ARE YOU ACTUALLY SHITTING ME?’

In a later post she accused ITV of not being ‘bothered about my comedy career’.

Brand was named best female newcomer at the British Comedy Awards in 2008, and this year made the music-video spoof series Katy Brand Vs for ITV2.
