“Girls of the Playboy Mansion”, a show that aired on E! Entertainment in the UK, has cost the broadcaster a £40,000 (€50,000) fine from TV regulator Ofcom.

According to Ofcom the show featured “prolonged sequences of nudity” in two back-to-back episodes shown during last year’s Christmas holiday season.

Even though the shows aired at 10pm, Ofcom decided it was likely when unaccompanied children could have been watching.
