After it went viral, the clip came to the attention of Paquin, who recognised herself in the scene.

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.

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

The 35-year-old had a good chuckle about the BBC boob on Friday (11Aug17), tweeting: "MY BREASTS! SO FUNNY ON SO MANY LEVELS" before saying it was "some of the funniest s**t I've seen in a while". Thanks for the giggle!

She added: "ya know you've made (it) when. your t*ts photo bomb the news at 10".

And after someone tweeted that the BBC were "looking into the matter", she wrote gleefully: '"looking into the matter"? Robert Anna's husband, Stephen Moyer, also chimed in with comments of their own.

She also responded to a story claiming the BBC was "looking into the matter'", joking: "What's there to look into my tits photobombed the news because someone was watching ['True Blood'] in view of camera". They have annoyingly blurred it out'. Paquin explained it was "fairy land graveyard sex with warlow... duh!"

Presenter Sophie Raworth was reading a piece about the English cricket team's victory over South Africa last week, while an employee had a clip of a woman stripping on their computer screen in the background. It is totally unprofessional. The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him'.
