Naked Blonde Gives Scotland a News Flash

By Sam Gibbs on at

Scots interested in Ed Miliband’s leadership of the Labour Party got a bit more than they bargained for this week, when a bouncing naked blonde appeared in the background of a STV news broadcast.

It was apparently a sex scene from Channel 4’s Shameless, but what it was doing on one of the monitors in the background and directly in shot, who knows. The host, John MacKay, was forced to apologise for the incident after viewers made a formal complaint. And there I would have thought that the Scots would have been only too pleased to have something spice up the otherwise pretty dull topic of the Labour leadership. [Evening Standard]
