Harry Hill has admitted it can be incredibly tough to edit repeats of 'You've Been Framed' due to references to dead and shamed celebrities.

The 53-year-old comedian has narrated the show - which features hilarious home videos - since 2004, and he revealed show bosses have a difficult job of updating previous episodes because they have to take out mentions of celebs who have passed away, and those arrested as part of Operation Yewtree, a police investigation into sexual abuse allegations.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It happens increasingly that the person I'm referencing has died.

"And they had to cut out a whole lot of references after all those people were arrested as part of Operation Yewtree."

Despite the difficulties, Harry - who followed on from Jeremy Beadle, Lisa Riley and Jonathan Wilkes - is happy to carry on in his role as long as bosses and fans want him there.

He added: "God knows how many episodes I've done - thousands and thousands. I'll keep doing it while they want it."

The TV presenter is kicking off his new show 'Alien Fun Capsule' this weekend, and he has likened the show to 'Harry Hill's TV Burp', which he hosted for 11 years until 2012.

He explained: "This feels a bit like the son of 'TV Burp'. I hope there are enough elements people like, basically taking the p**s out of TV clips."

But he has ruled out the possibility of stepping into the world of reality TV for the time being.

He said: "Anything where there's a chance of seeing you in your pants is off the agenda. For now."
