Charlie Brooker denies prior knowledge of David Cameron pig allegations before writing 'Black Mirror'

Black Mirror writer Charlie Brooker has denied having prior knowledge of the allegations that Prime Minister David Cameron put a private part of his anatomy in the mouth of a dead pig while at university. Brooker spoke out about the alleged incident, which has come to light as part of a new book written by the Conservative donor Lord Ashcroft, as it closely mirrors an episode of his TV show in which a fictional prime minister is forced to have sex with a pig. The episode, titled 'The National Anthem', aired on Channel 4 in 2011. In the episode, the PM (played by Rory Kinnear) must have sex with a pig in order to secure the safe release of a kidnapped Princess Susannah, Duchess of Beaumont (Lydia Wilson).
