In the scene, the vicar calls the quaint village “not the most diverse community” before putting up a BLM poster on the parish noticeboard.

The BBC, who had previously defended the scene as “in keeping with the character and the theme of the show” confirmed the 266 complaints last night.

The scene was applauded by some sections of the audience but others complained of the comedy being “politicised”.
