COMEDIAN Frankie Boyle has been attacked over his ''sickening'' comments about 2,100 Hampshire schoolchildren who formed the Olympic rings in their school grounds to raise money for charity.

The pupils of Bay House School in Gosport won a new world record by arranging themselves in the shape of the Olympic logo.

But the Mock The Week star wrote in a national newspaper that their effort was ''the most autistic response to a global sporting event''.

And Boyle added: ''For the kids of Gosport, learning how to stand bewildered in a blue jumper is all they need to qualify them for a life of working in 99p stores.''

Caroline Dinenage, MP for Gosport, said she was sickened by the comments, adding that they were “spiteful”.

Headteacher Ian Potter has said he is proud of the Bay House School pupils after they raised a large sum of money for orphans of Malawi through their record breaking efforts.
