In a week when Jimmy Carr's tax arrangements have been under the spotlight, one of his fellow comedians has spoken in his defence.
John Bishop says: "He was given advice, he acted upon it and now he thinks he should've done something else. It's as simple as that."
Carr has been criticised over his involvement with the K2 Channel Islands scheme, which allowed him to pay just one per cent tax.
The 8 out of 10 Cats presenter has since apologised and released a statement saying he made a terrible error of judgement and that he is no longer involved with the scheme.
John Bishop added: "You act on advice, if you go to a doctor and say 'this hurts' and he goes 'I'd advise you to do this' you don't go 'oh I'll try something else'."
