Mark Wahlberg has said that Seth MacFarlane's new film Ted is edgier than his television show Family Guy.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph newspaper he said: "The humour in the movie I guess you could say is similar to Family Guy, but Seth is probably pushing things a little bit more in this movie.

He continued: "I think it is going to offend more people than Family Guy does, but hey I didn't write it… I told them I want that as a disclaimer!"

Ted is now playing in the US and opens in the Ireland on August 1.
