Mobile Complaint
(7 September 2009)

  • This episode was subject to a complaint: The mobile number of Lisa Edwards, a beautician, was shown on screen. She received obscene phone calls and 2800 texts. The BBC said the number should not have been broadcast and apologised to Mrs Edwards. It said the programme team was not able to discover how the number ended up in the prop phone. It said a network fault or misdialed number could have been to blame.
