BBC viewers were left stunned yesterday after the London evening news showed a social media comment reading “I love to f*** your ass”.
Ashleigh Moss, 55, was watching with her six-year-old granddaughter when the lewd comment popped up on her TV screen.
It appeared next to the photo of a female model sat in a gym dressed in workout gear, as she stares into the camera.
Ashleigh, a warehouse supervisor, from High Wycombe, North West London, said: “I’m no prude, but I’m absolutely appalled by their standards.
“Then they showed a plus sized model’s Instagram. When I saw that comment I could not believe it – I was gobsmacked.
“I thought they’d say sorry at the end of it, but there was nothing.
“Somebody has got to pay for that surely, I would say that was bad at ten o’ clock, let alone quarter to seven in the evening.”

Some took to social media to brand the featured comment as “disgusting” and “unacceptable”.
Ted Baker tweeted: “Since when has it been acceptable to show such disgusting language in the news?”
A BBC spokeswoman said: “The mistake was spotted immediately and the image was taken down.”
