Two promotional clips for Ali G's new movie, in which he insults the Queen, have been banned by television watchdogs.

Ali G In Da House shows a scene where the comic meets "the Queen" and accidently pulls her skirt down.

In another clip, he kisses Her Majesty's hand and says: "You look much fitter than on the coins".

The scenes were to be used on TV to promote the movie, out in the UK on March 22.

But the Independent Television Commission in Britain has deemed the scenes "unfit for TV".

The film tells the story of Ali G's rise from Staines to the House of Commons.

Charles Dance and Michael Gambon star in the film opposite Ali G's creator, Sacha Baron Cohen.

A new website has been launched for the film, which includes trailers, shopping items, competitions and weekly updates.
