Actress Billie Piper is set to cause controversy with her latest role as a teacher who has a lesbian fling with a student.
After playing an escort in raunchy series Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Piper is now starring as a married teacher who falls for a 16-year-old pupil, played by Skins star Kaya Scodelario, in U.K. drama True Love.
Audiences will see the pair share passionate kisses and even climb in bed together when it debuts in Britain on Sunday (17Jun12) - and network bosses at the Bbc are already predicting a backlash.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "This storyline will get some criticism but it's been well researched and is similar to real-life events."
