LEE Mack's new show The Chop has been pulled off air after a contestant appeared with "Nazi tattoos" on his face.

WITH over 100million viewers in America, the Super Bowl is one of the biggest dates in the US calendar. And where there's such a huge audience, there's an opportunity for advertisers that they will break the bank to take.
