EastEnders producers have defended the gay sex scene between the characters Ben Mitchell and Paul Coker saying the sex was implied rather than explicit.

The scene which attracted 48 complaints to OfCom has been defended by the BBC with a spokesperson saying,

“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.”

 

This isn’t the first time the BBC has had to defend gay storylines on EastEnders, in 1987 the BBC received a record number of complaints when Colin kissed a then under age Barry.
