Mrs Brown Makes Risque Joke About Caitlyn Jenner's Gender Reassignment Surgery
| Last updated
Mrs Brown made a risque joke about Caitlyn Jenner's sex reassignment surgery on an upcoming episode of her new chat show.
The host, played by Brendan O'Carroll, dabbed her neck with a handkerchief and appeared flustered in the aftermath of the gag, but fortunately Jenner responded with a joke of her own.
As Jenner discussed how blessed she was to have 10 children, the host responded: "Jesus! Thank God you got rid of it!"
70-year-old Jenner took it in her stride though and replied: "Thank God! I didn't actually get rid of it, I just retired it," before going for a high five.
The Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete then added: "Put it this way, I did have some really good Olympic swimmers."
The banterous exchange is taken from the first episode of the fourth series of All Round To Mrs. Brown's, which will air on BBC One on Saturday 21 March at 9.15pm.
Jenner was less receptive to comments about her sex reassignment when appearing on Piers Morgan's Life Stories in 2018.
The host pulled out an Olympic action figurine and asked Jenner to explain how she has changed physically and said 'obviously certain areas we know'.
Objecting to his tone and phrasing, she said: "You made a comment there and that's why you would get in trouble, OK? You said, 'certain areas' - that, to a trans-person, is disrespectful.
"It's not funny. It's life. It's a very serious part of my life. I take that very seriously and so out of respect to myself and the community, it's not something that you joke about. This is serious stuff. People die over these issues. It's not a joke."
When he was first pulled up about his comment, Morgan sat up and appeared smug, almost as if he knew he'd crossed a line. He then asked why it's not OK to make jokes about transgendered people and their bodies.
But when Jenner explained the pain she's been through and why it's disrespectful, the Good Morning Britain presenter replied: "Point taken."
Caitlyn added: "There is a lot of pain in my life that I dealt with and it was not a joke and all the things I have done I take very seriously as it affects a lot of people."
