MID­WEEK

SAYS MIRTH

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE BBC were ac­cused of a mas­sive spy-style cover-up last night as view­ers de­manded an­swers to the mys­tery of Melissa Ge­orge’s MISS­ING BOOBS!

Mouth-wa­ter­ing Melissa, 36, is cur­rently star­ring as a pri­vate sec­tor spook in the Beeb’s glossy drama se­ries, Hunted.

But Mid­week Sport can re­veal that a racy scene from the first episode of the eight-parter – in which Melissa is seen NAKED with her de­light­ful BOOBS on show – was con­tro­ver­sially AXED in the UK.

The Aussie temptress plays Sa­man­tha Hunter, an es­pi­onage op­er­a­tive for a shady pri­vate in­tel­li­gence agency called Byzan­tium.

In the Amer­i­can cut of the first episode, it opens with her open­ing a door to a man while she is dressed in only a red slip – which she drops to the floor.

The footage – freely avail­able on­line – shows Melissa turn to the side, re­veal­ing her pert boobs and knick­er­less bot­tom.

But when BBC1 aired the episode on Oc­to­ber 4, the sexy scene was cut.

One an­gry li­cence payer said: “I can’t help but won­der why the scene was cut from the BBC ver­sion.

“It was aired af­ter the 9pm wa­ter­shed so they have no ex­cuse. Why should the Yanks get to see her lovely boobs – it’s a BBC pro­gramme for God’s sake.” WE all pay for the BBC through the li­cence fee.

But ap­par­ently some­one some­where at the cor­po­ra­tion has de­cided the sight of a NAKED Melissa Ge­orge – af­ter the kids have gone to bed – is too much for British eyes. WHO told them they could do that? Why should Amer­i­cans get to see what WE paid for?
