The Actress Who Played Po On 'Teletubbies' Ended Up Doing 'Lesbian Porn'

This maybe something you really wanna know, it might be something you really don't wanna know, but the human behind the Po costume in Teletubbies went on to pastures new after the show ended. And when I say 'pastures new', I mean 'lesbian porn'.

Teletubbies was a staple for many children of this generation, introducing us to a world of giggling suns, A.I vacuum cleaners and toast with smiley faces.

But it turns out those beloved characters running about on those green hills weren't so innocent away from the set.

On the eve of the 20th anniversary this week, it has emerged that in 2001, Pui Fan Le starred in Channel 4 drama 'Metrosexuality' in which she was filmed performing a sex act on another girl.

While I have absolutely no interest in finding said scene on strictly moral grounds, I will show you a trailer for the show, albeit in French.

Forty-five-year-old Pui Fan Lee, now based in Nottingham, is anything but regretful about her steamy TV moment, saying she 'didn't take the lesbian role to be deliberately controversial'.

She added: "Yes, I was Po. But I am an actress, too, and the role looked interesting, exciting and challenging."

For what it's worth, I overheard in a bar last year a woman saying she'd 'slept with Dipsy from Teletubbies'.

It is unknown whether or not that was true or if the actor was dressed up as Dipsy at the time. And, to be fair, I don't really want to know.
