Anna Paquin's breasts air on BBC News at Ten

Paquin a punch True Blood's Anna went completely naked to romp with Downton star Allen Leech in Canadian cop drama Bellevue

According to United Kingdom media, about 3.8 million people were tuning into the nightly newscast, and now millions more have seen the awkward moment.

And now the owner of those boobs has revealed her identity - and it is Anna Paquin.

Eagle-eyed viewers spotted an explicit video being played on a computer screen in the background of a shot on Tuesday (August 8).

Anna's raunchy on-screen moment made headlines as BBC presenter Sophie Raworth, 49, appeared completely oblivious to the steamy action being shown behind her as she read the headlines of the night, with many people at home mistakenly thinking that porn was being accidentally shown to millions of viewers. "MY BREASTS!" she tweeted, along with a link to an article on the incident.

Even her husband Stephen Moyer, who she stars alongside in the vampire series, got in on the act, asking which sex scene it was.

Seven series of True Blood were broadcast between 2008 and 2014, which focused on supernatural events in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana.

He responded: "Which scene is it? They have annoyingly blurred it out", he tweeted, adding the poking-out-tongue-wink emoji.

At the time, a source told The Sun: "This has gone down like a lead balloon at the BBC".

"It beggars belief a sex scene should be played live on air".

One person on Twitter pointed out that "BBC said it was looking into the matter, saying in a statement it was "establishing the facts".
