Viewers Slam Pussycat Dolls' Raunchy Sport Relief Performance
Hosted by Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness, the night featured various performances and sketches from well-known names.
This included an appearance from The Pussycat Dolls, a dance troupe made up of Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Suttatook, who were met with a great deal of cheering and clapping from the audience in the studio.
The only thing is, some viewers at home weren't feeling quite so positive about it, with many jumping on Twitter to argue the performance resembled something you'd find in a 'porn movie' as the group danced on stage in PVC.
...Because, yes, adult film industry is known for its focus on pop music and charity sports events.

One person tweeted: "What the hell have the pussycat dolls got on I thought I was watching a porn movie #SportsRelief2020."
Another raged: "@pussycatdolls are soo cringe... If you want to see women in underwear just mouthing into a microphone shaped object, may I suggest Porn Hub instead."
Not everyone found issue with the raunchy display, with many others praising the Dolls for helping a good cause.
One said: "What is the fuss all about?? They look amazing. Nothing porn about this. I see 5 insanely talented and gorgeous women having fun on stage."
Someone else commented: "I'm tired of people generally not being kind.... and FYI if you thought last night's performance was like porn.... Oh honaaayyy you need to live more!"
Mind you, whatever you think of all the PVC, the group helped raise an incredible £40,540,355 on the night, which is what it's all really about, isn't it?
Again, many found the combination of their racy outfits and energetic dancing a little too risqué for their liking, with one person tweeting: "I'm no prude but that routine was positively pornographic."
The BBC responded to complaints in a statement on its website, saying: "We worked with the band to ensure their performance was suitable."
