Miranda: Penis!

"As a cosy middle class sitcom Miranda is an unlikely programme to shake the upper echelons of the BBC. But the award-winning Miranda Hart comedy, about to switch from BBC2 to BBC1, prompted discussion by the corporation's most senior executives over a scene involving a penis-shaped chocolate lollipop.
"Keen to avoid further controversy in the wake of the "Sachsgate" affair, BBC management undertook a forensic analysis of the episode including whether the confectionery was too realistic and if Hart licked or sucked it..."

Thankfully sanity prevailed and the scene was reshot with the chocolate penis less prominent - happy now The Daily Mail?!
Naughty Miranda.
