Imagine paying attention to the news and then an inappropriate video starts playing in the background.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to over 3million BBC viewers during the news at 10 , last night. As Sophie Raworth was presenting a live report on the England cricket team’s victory over South Africa, a BBC staff who was wearing headphones while sitting in front of the company’s computer, was spotted watching a woman remove her bra in a raunchy movie scene.
A Twitter user who noticed, wrote:
‘@BBCNews why is there a porn video playing behind one of your news anchors during a report?’
While one Lyndsey Robinson from Barnsley, Yorks who posted a clip of the boob on Facebook, 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 [crying face emojis].”
A television source told The Sun:
‘This has gone down like a lead balloon at the BBC. It is totally unprofessional.
‘It beggars belief a sex scene should be played live on air. The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him.’
However, BBC authorities said it is investigating the incident.
