THE Chaser, known for their controversial stunts, have been banned from Friday's royal wedding broadcast under direct orders from Britain's Clarence House.
Members of The Chaser, known for their controversial stunts and who drew worldwide attention by breaching security at the 2007 APEC summit in Sydney, were planning on providing alternate commentary for Australian public broadcaster, the ABC, on its second channel ABC2.
But Clarence House, which serves as an office for Prince Charles and Prince William, put a stop to the plans.
It said the agreement under which the ABC takes the wedding telecast forbids its use in "any drama, comedy, satirical or similar entertainment program or content."
The ABC was told if it proceeded as planned with the satirical take from The Chaser team it would be in breach of the agreement.
