Yep, this headline is real. This actually did happen in an episode of EastEnders last week, as two Albert Square residents got down and dirty in a funeral parlour. One might have thought the sight of an open casket was a bit of a mood killer, but not for young Ben Mitchell and Paul Coker.

The pair are currently in the midst of an affair so are pretty much ceasing every opportunity they have alone together. EVERY. OPPORTUNITY.

Almost fifty viewers complained to the television standards watchdog Ofcom over the setting of the sex scene. However EastEnders have defended it saying that the sex was "implied and not explicit"

In a statement released by the soap, they said; "The millions of regular EastEnders fans who tune in each week know and expect dramatic storylines.

“We are always mindful of our time slot in which we are shown and the scenes in question were implied and not explicit."

A spokeperson from Ofcom told the London Independent; "We had 48 complaints about the scene where a couple had sex in a funeral parlour, when there was an open casket in the room. We’ll assess these complaints before deciding whether to investigate or not."

So sex in a funeral parlour, yay or nay?


Don't answer that.

No, really.
