TELEVISION star Miranda Hart says she is infuriated by the material of some of her fellow comedians.

The funnywoman and actress’s sitcom Miranda, co-starring Patricia Hodge, Tom Ellis and Sarah Hadland, has been a huge hit on BBC1. But Hart, 39, said: “Comedy is so subjective … I mean there’s some comedy on at the moment which makes me furious. I don’t understand why people like them because I hate them so much.”

The star declined to name names, saying: “No, I couldn’t possibly tell you who.

“As a comedian, the audience think you’re saying, ‘Look at me! I’m the funniest person in the whole world!’… But that’s not what it is – you’re just doing your job.”

Hart never intended her sitcom to be about a “single woman looking for love”, saying her friends worry that becoming famous has made it more difficult for her to find a man as they “are going to feel nervous approaching me”.
