Gypsy’s cleav­age banned from TV

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

TWO ad­verts for Chan­nel 4’s Big Fat Gypsy Wed­dings have been banned for show­ing two trav­ellers ex­pos­ing their cleav­age and a young gypsy lad star­ing ‘ag­gres­sively’ into the cam­era.

The bill­board ads – seen all over the UK – were part of a cam­paign to boost view­ing fig­ures for the top-rated TV pro­gramme.

At its height the show racked up 8.7mil­lion view­ers.

The Ad­ver­tis­ing Stan­dards Author­ity acted re­ceiv­ing nine com­plaints.

It banned two of four poster ads say­ing they were ir­re­spon­si­ble and offensive.

The first ad showed a gypsy lad aged around 10 star­ing ag­gres­sively.

The other showed two girls look­ing se­duc­tively into the cam­era ex­pos­ing their cleav­age.
