Which ones were banned?

The Advertising Standards Authority has ruled Paddy Power can continue to use an advert which tells FIFA president Sepp Blatter to “Just f*** off already”, as the use of an expletive was unlikely to cause offence.

The betting firm may have escaped a ban this time, but it seems Paddy Power has got a bit of a reputation for offending people with its ads.

The Irish bookies treads a fine line between funny and offensive in most of its marketing campaigns and sometimes falls foul of the sensors.

But which were cleared and which were banned? Here are six more examples.

1. Chav tranquilizer – BANNED
