More than 50,000 people have signed an online petition calling on ITV to not commission another series of comedian Dapper Laughs' show.

In Dapper Laughs: On the Pull, comedian Daniel O'Reilly dishes out fake dating advice to young men under the guise of his alter ego Dapper Laughs.

The petition criticises O'Reilly, claiming he has "misogynistic views" and that his programme is normalising "everyday sexism" for both men and women.

The final episode of the first series aired on November 7th and it has not yet been decided whether there will be a second.

Responding to the petition, the broadcaster said it regretted if any viewers were offended, but that the show was carefully considered before being broadcast.
