An implied gay sex scene could land the BBC in trouble with OfCom after 48 complaints were made to the regulatory body.

A scene between the characters Ben Mitchell (Harry Reid) and Paul Coker saw the pair getting topless and kissing in front of an open coffin in a funeral parlour.

Speaking to Digital Spy, a spokesperson for the BBC said,

“The millions of regular ‘EastEnders’ fans who tune in each week know and expect dramatic storylines.

“We are always mindful of our time slot in which we are shown and the scenes in question were implied and not explicit.”

OfCom commented that it would access the complaints before deciding whether it needs to investigate or not.
