A TELEVISION programme set to feature an Island woman has been given the chop — due to the controversial tattoos sported by one of the contestants.

The Chop: Britain's Top Woodworker, hosted by Lee Mack and Rick Edwards, began last Thursday, with the second episode due to be aired today.

However, it has been pulled from Sky schedules over concerns about participant Darren Lumsden's tattoos, which have been said to include Nazi symbols.

No further episodes will be broadcast until an investigation is concluded.

The programme was set to feature craftswoman Annie Wrenn, from the Island.

She has worked in New York and in London and now lives on the Isle of Wight, where she has her own studio.
