BBC accidentally live broadcasts topless woman during news at 10

The woman whose topless body was seen in the background of a BBC News at 10 broadcast earlier this week has spoken out - and it's none other than Hollywood star Anna Paquin.

On Tuesday (8 August), bare breasts were accidentally broadcast to 3.8 million people around Britain as a raunchy episode of HBO series True Blood played on a computer screen behind newsreader Sophie Raworth.

As the anchor continued unaware of the situation, the x-rated scene played on as Paquin's character Sookie Stackhouse stripped off, exposing the upper half of her body.

The BBC employee was watching a season six episode of the Emmy-nominated TV series which saw Paquin's character in a sex scene with co-star Robert Kazinsky who played Warlow.

Paquin found the situation hilarious and later shared an article, writing: “MY BREASTS!! SO FUNNY ON SO MANY LEVELS.”

In response to the BBC, who said they are investigating the situation, wrote: “'looking into the matter'? What's there to look into my t**s photobombed the news because someone was watching #trueblood in front of camera.”

Her husband and co-star Stephen Moyer also saw the funny side asking his wife which of the show's many sex scene it was.

True Blood drew to a close after seven seasons in 2012.
