The topic of sex has once again reared its head on live radio, ensuring that listeners of Joe Duffy's Liveline radio show were in for one hell of a debate.

The TV series 'Normal People' on Liveline was the number one talking point today, and dominated proceedings as members of the public put across their divisive opinions on air.

Based on Sally Rooney's novel of the same name, the series arrived on our screens earlier this week to plenty of praise online. Starring Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones, the series has been widely celebrated for its raw outlook on two young people falling in love for the first time.

However, it seems not everyone was a fan of the show while tuning into RTE One on Tuesday night. Joe Duffy's Liveline radio show had a discussion of the series live on air today - and people aren't happy.

Both sides of the public's view were covered, with some praising the TV series for being bold and showing real-life - while others believe the approach of "less is more" would have been better suited. Here's some of the reaction the discussion about 'Normal People' on Liveline was getting today.

Creator of the TV series Lenny Abrahamson also managed to chime in, with a sneaky shot of presenter Joe Duffy looking worse for wear at the sheer meltdown that happened on air.

Paul Mescal, who plays Connell, also contributed by telling the director "You should be ashamed..."

So, if you don't wish to tune into any more "filth" then we'd advise you to stop watching 'Normal People' on RTE One every Tuesday night for the next few weeks.

We recently caught up with the cast and crew of the series to get the lowdown on working on Ireland's next big TV series.
