THE BBC have threat­ened to sue the or­gan­is­ers of a sex ex­hi­bi­tion be­cause of its Strictly Come Danc­ing theme.

Lawyers con­tacted the peo­ple be­hind Erot­ica ac­cus­ing them of break­ing strict copy­right laws.

Erot­ica’s pro­mo­tional ma­te­rial shows two dancers pos­ing un­der a glit­ter ball — like the logo for the BBC1 show.

Erot­ica spokesman Dan Kirkby said: “We had a let­ter threat­en­ing us with lit­i­ga­tion with­out fur­ther no­tice from the BBC’s le­gal depart­ment.

“We’re David and they’re Go­liath here.”

A BBC spokesman added: “The BBC takes the pro­tec­tion of its brands ex­tremely se­ri­ously and we be­lieve that the as­so­ci­a­tion of our well es­tab­lished fam­ily pro­gramme with such an event is clearly dam­ag­ing.”
