Anna Paquin's breasts air on BBC News at Ten

The nip slip-up happened because an episode was playing on an employee's computer in the background of the live broadcast.

True Blood actress Anna Paquin has "claimed" the breasts that were accidentally broadcast on BBC News At Ten.

Anna Paquin recently featured on BBC with an unintentional appearance on a news programme.

Now, the actress has branded the awkward incident "hilarious", taking to Twitter to say: "My breasts!"

"It's objectively amusing!" she tweeted. "Thanks for the giggle!"

In the viral video, Raworth was seen introducing the news of England's cricket series win over South Africa as a woman on the screen drops her pants to reveal tight pink knickers.

Anna's husband Stephen Moyer, 47, who played Bill Compton in the hit HBO series, also said: "This is wonderful and making me very happy".

Anna also joked about the BBC's reaction to what was seen on TV, questioning a statement which said they were "looking into the matter".

The host had no idea the steamy clip was being watched behind her - and the colleague with his headphones in clearly did not realise 3.8m people could see his screen. "What's there to look into my t**s photobombed the news because someone was watching #trueblood in front of the camera".
