Rebel Wilson couldn't resist making a savage dig at Prince Andrew as she hosted the BAFTAs on Sunday night.

Hosting the glitzy awards ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall, Rebel looked incredible wearing a red gown and left fans stunned by her savage dig at the Queen's son.

After Dune's acceptance speech, Rebel took to the podium and said: "So I was gonna do a musical musical number as host, it was about Prince Andrew though.

"Um, no guys, it's no, it's not what you think [sic].

"It was on roller skates, it's called Pizza Express.

"But don't worry, I'm not gonna do it, I'm not gonna sing. I'm saving my voice for the sequel to Cats."

Her Prince Andrew jibe wasn't the only royal dig of the night though, because straight after she went on to say: "Our next package is for Outstanding British Film.

"From drama, to horror, to fantasy, Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah had it all.

"Unfortunately that's not nominated in this category."

Viewers watching the annual ceremony were quick to take to Twitter to comment on the risky royal jokes, with one writing: "Oof edgy Prince Andrew joke there from Rebel Wilson. #BAFTA2022."

Another wasn't too pleased with the jibe and penned: "NOOOOOOOOOOO NOT PRINCE ANDREW JOKES BAFTA FFS. Didn’t think the 'comedy' could be any worse."

Someone else wasn't happy either and added: "@BAFTA was it really necessary to raise the issue with Prince Andrew? Very distasteful in my opinion…."
