Sky decided to cut a joke about Prince Philip from the UK broadcast of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver last night.

The comedian began this week's episode with a reference to the Duke of Edinburgh, who died at the age of 99 earlier this month and was laid to rest on Saturday.

"Hi there, welcome to the show - still taking place in this blank void," said Oliver, referring to his show's broadcast from a small empty studio due to coronavirus.

"I've nicknamed it Prince Philip's coffin, because it's a sad little box containing a rapidly-decomposing British man."

When the episode aired on Sky Comedy last night, the comments were cut completely, with the opening credits jumping straight to Oliver mid-sentence as he introduced the show's first item.

Watch the original intro to the episode below:
