The Broadcasting Standards Council found The Mary Whitehouse Experience guilty on two counts: first, one performer gave an impression of what he called a 'nutter' (30 March) with reference to Truly Madly Deeply.

Second, jokes about masturbation and oral sex were deemed unseemly for transmission just after the watershed on 16 March.
