The News At Ten should rename itself 'Blues At Ten' (am I right?) after another BBC live gaff seemingly showed nudity on air on Tuesday night.

Presenter Sophie Raworth was introducing a story about England's victory over South Africa in the cricket, when eagle-eyed viewers spotted something they shouldn't have in the background.

Lyndsey Robinson from Barnsley, Yorkshire posted a clip of the nudity on Facebook and wrote: "Did anyone else notice news last night on BBC???

"Thought I was seeing things... but just re-watched on iPlayer... nope I definitely saw what I thought I had."

The BBC said last night that it was investigating the incident, but an insider told The Sun that went down 'like a lead balloon'.

They added: "It is totally unprofessional. It beggars belief a sex scene should be played live on air."


Over the weekend, BBC Spotlight, the regional news programme for the South West, was live in Sidmouth, East Devon, for the 63rd Folk Week.

Whilst the reporter was chatting to one of the gentlemen helping to run the festival, two people can be seen walking by in the background.

As they move increasingly into shot, the woman in the black crop top pulled her outfit to one side and gave the viewers a flash.


Nobody on the outside broadcast team picked it up and the interview continued, but many on social media were quick to react.

The BBC News has been littered with nudity-related incidents this year, as the News At Ten bulletin was the third in 2017.

During labour's election manifesto launch, ahead of the General Election, presenter Ben Brown accidentally grabbed a woman's right breast when trying to remove her from shot and interrupting an interview.
