2 October 09 13:34 GMT

Comedian Frankie Boyle has quit as a panellist on satirical show Mock The Week "due to other television commitments", the BBC has announced.

A spokesman for the BBC Two programme, which has been commissioned for a further two series, said Boyle had been "a brilliant member of the team".

"The door is always open for him to come back," the spokesman added.

Dara O'Briain will continue to host the show which pitches two teams of comics against each other.

Boyle is leaving the show after seven series as a panellist.
