It was an eye sore when viewers who turn to BBC News @10 when a woman expose her br**sts on a computer screen just behind presenter Sophie Raworth.
A BBC worker, who was wearing headphones and slumped in his chair, was spotted watching the woman remove her bra in the raunchy movie scene.
Ms Raworth, 49, was presenting a live piece on the England cricket team’s victory over South Africa, but eagle-eyed viewers noticed the screen over her shoulder.
Around 3.8million viewers watched the show and one person tweeted: ‘@BBCNews why is there a P0*n video playing behind one of your news anchors during a report?’ The actress was wearing a black jumper while standing over a man during the clip which could be seen on Monday evening.
In what is believed to be an action movie, she then removed her bra to reveal her br**sts during the striptease. 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 s*x scene should be played live on air. The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him.’ The BBC said it is investigating the incident.
