Normal People bosses furious as BBC show’s sex scenes are uploaded to porn site

Normal People bosses were left furious after sex scenes from the hit show were uploaded to a porn website.

The hit BBC show's sauciest moments had been edited into a 22 minute long video and was available to watch on Pornhub.

It is believed that the X-rated website has now removed the video after receiving a notice from the bosses behind the show.

The sex scenes were taken from the 12 part show, available on BBC Three, which follows the love story of Marianne and Connell, portrayed respectively by Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal.

Executive producer of the show, Ed Guiney, said: "We're hugely disappointed that excerpts from the series of Normal People have been used in this way.

"It's both a violation of copyright and more importantly, it's deeply disrespectful to the actors involved and to the wider creative team.

"We have taken appropriate steps to require that the content be removed from the platform with immediate effect," he continued to tell Variety.

Paul was recently left embarrassed after a radio caller confessed to attempting to "stalk" him.

Talking to Nick Grimshaw on his BBC Radio 1 Drivetime Show, Paul was taken aback when caller Jess, admitted she had already watched the show twice and wanted to uproot her life.

"I finished Normal People last night for the second time," she began, "So after that I decided to go on LinkedIn and spent a few hours scrolling through different jobs in Dublin and different flats on Spareroom all in the hope that I could potentially bump into Paul in the street once I move there.

"But now I just heard that he is living in east London, so that was a waste of time," she said as Paul giggled away in the background.

Hearing her plight, Paul then joked: "Don’t worry I will go back, I will move back to Dublin for you. I’m booking my flights now."

Jess was delighted, adding: "Oh brilliant. I live in Luton, it’s like 30 minutes from London. So it could work?"

Nick continued to poke fun at the awkward situation, encouraging Jess to reveal what else she'd been up to while getting to know the Irish actor a little better.

"I was doing some background research and I wanted to know what kind of girls Paul was into, so I went through his followers on Instagram just to get a little flavour of the girls he was interested in… Yeah I know," Jess confessed much to Paul's shock.

“Umm ok… I wasn’t aware I had a type, but clearly my Instagram followers is the key to that…" Paul replied, as Nick asked the pair to say their goodbyes.
