Comedian Nigel Ng has deleted a video and apologised to his fans after featuring a YouTuber who has criticised the Chinese government.

Nigel Ng has three million subscribers on YouTube where he plays the character Uncle Roger and gives a running commentary on Asian recipe videos.

On Tuesday, Mr Ng apologised on Chinese social media for including Mike Chen, a popular YouTuber, in one of his videos.

Mr Chen has previously spoken out about the treatment of Uighurs in Xinjiang.

  • China expands its Uighur detention camps – report

Mr Ng's decision has led some to accuse him of pandering to China – while also leaving his fans on Chinese social media confused.

UK viewers may be familiar with his humorous critique of a BBC Good Food recipe for egg-fried rice.
