Trivia

A sketch from the second series of this show was removed by ITV2 before broadcast for fear of offending muslims.

ITV lawyers instructed Brand to delete the spoof called 'The Iman of Dibley' from her show before the episode was broadcast.

Brand responded at the time: "It was not intended to be offensive. new iman arrives in a sleepy parish and the comedy arrives from the misunderstandings that causes. But the lawyers said it might be culturally insensitive. The vast majority of Muslims are able to have a laugh at themselves just like everyone else. Why should they be excluded from comedy? It's funny that ITV had no problem with a new sketch about a pregnant Jesus's girlfriend who has to deal with dating the Son of God."
