Frank Skinner has stopped telling sex jokes because he no longer has it himself

Frank Skinner says he’s stopped telling jokes about sex because he no longer has nights of passion himself.

The stand-up star, 65, often littered his live shows with rude gags about one-night stands.

But Frank said: “I don’t talk about my own sex life now on stage for the same reason I don’t talk about climbing trees. It stopped! Haha.

“For me stand-up is like a diary. It really reflects where I am at that point in my life.”

Frank – who has a son Woody, 10, with long-term partner Cath Mason – will still have some sauce in his act.

He tells a Sky Arts’ The South Bank Show about his career: “I will still do, to use the shorthand term, knob jokes. I still love them.” Frank also discusses his working class upbringing and how he embarked on a career as a comedian quite late in life at the age of 30.

It will also see him talk about the success of his telly presenting career including Fantasy Football League and The Frank Skinner Show.

Frank recently spoke about how he has evolved from using “racist” and “homophobic” language in his younger years.

He said: “I completely own up to that. I have evolved and that’s a good thing. When I look back, I’m ok with that.”

The South Bank Show featuring Frank Skinner airs on Sky Arts on Wednesday July 20.

It comes after Frank made the candid admission as he detailed his stay at Cliveden hotel, a former stately home in Berkshire.

The on-stage performer admitted he was more "excited" by the royal connection to Queen Victoria after the comic revealed he slept in Meghan Markle's bed.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, tied the knot with Prince Harry at a lavish ceremony in 2018.

Meghan reportedly held her hen do at luxury countryside spa retreat Soho Farmhouse, located in the Oxfordshire countryside.

Ahead of her nuptials, the Duchess spent her last night as a non-royal at the extremely regal Cliveden House in Berkshire.

"We stayed not in the hotel proper but in Spring Cottage, which apparently was built for a place where Queen Victoria could take tea with the Duchess of somewhere," he told Daily Mail.

"And, apparently, the bed we slept in was the bed Meghan slept in on her hen weekend."

He added: "Obviously, I was a bit more excited by the Queen Victoria connection — let’s face it, she’s more my age group."
