Jimmy Carr ripped on 8 out of 10 Cats over tax scandal - video

Comedian Jimmy Carr faced a BARRAGE of mockery on the latest episode of 8 out of 10 cats - as the panel poked fun at his involvement in a tax scandal.

Yeah, so it's actually a serious government issue and all that - but you know what? It's also hilarious. Well, when Sean Locke, John Richardson and Co. get involved, it is.

And seems a whole load of you guessed that Jimmy wasn't going to get away with glossing over his front-page antics, because 2.18 million (that's over 1m extra viewers than the week before) tuned in to watch him get a right old ribbing.

Adding: “We all like to put a bit of money away for a rainy day, don't we? But I think you're more prepared than Noah."
