During a live news broadcast, the BBC accidentally telecasted a woman exposing her breasts on a computer screen, just a few yards behind presenter Sophie Raworth. A BBC worker (man in the background) wearing headphones was filmed watching a raunchy movie scene, unaware it was being streamed live to 3.8 million viewers.

The 49-year-old anchor, Sophie Raworth was talking about England’s cricket series win over South Africa. Suddenly in the background on her right shoulder, a woman was seen removing her bra to reveal her breasts during the striptease on the screen.
A TV 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. You can’t get away with this sort of stuff anymore.”
Viewer Lyndsey Robinson wrote on Facebook: “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.”
