ITV’s new primetime show, The Games, has been a huge hit with viewers at home as twelve super-fit celebrities continue to battle it out in a range of sporting events.
But some people are complaining the talent show is “too rude” after Coronation Street Ryan Thomas accidentally flashed his bottom while learning to dive on the show.
During Tuesday’s (May 10) instalment of the week-long series, the programme opened with a warning that the show included “some strong language” throughout.
Although the show airs after the watershed at 9pm each evening, it seems as though not everyone is impressed by the cast’s potty mouths and the 37-year-old actor’s cheeky flash as producer zoomed in on the unfortunate accident on air.
While the cast put in the hours for some much-needed diving practice, The Wanted singer Max George explained: “The worst part of it is my actual a**h***.”
Another contestant agreed: “That first splash on you b******s is the killer” after pulling themselves out of the pool.
It was at this point that the soap star suffered the embarrassing wardrobe malfunction after jumping off of the high board, where his trunks fell down exposing his bare bottom as he left the water.
The dad-of-two was left red faced as he caught up with Alex Jones, as he cheekily asked: “Oh no, did the sock fall out?”
It was at this point that the embarrassing clip was repeated on air as co-hosts Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff analysed the footage.
The 41-year-old asked her sporting co-star: “I thought the point of budgie smugglers is that they don’t fall off?”
Waterloo Road star, Ryan, suffered the TV blunder after he took part in synchronised diving, which was split into men’s and women’s events, with Christine McGuiness and Mel B’s daughter Phoenix amongst the slew of stars taking part.
But not all viewers were happy about looking at the embarrassing moment in depth as some pointed out the double standards on the show.
One user penned: “Imagine if one of the girls' swimsuits slipped and they took a still of it…double standards much #TheGames.”
Another agreed: “That lad diving with his skids pulled down – Would it be so funny if it were one of the girls? #TheGames.”
“Imagine the uproar if they’d have shown a female contestants’ bare a**! #TheGames.”
Other viewers thought that the show should have been made more family friendly and shown earlier on in an attempt to encourage more children to get involved in sports.
One fan tweeted: “Why isn’t #TheGames on earlier – it would be a fantastic family show! (Could bleep out the odd swear word) @ITV.”
Another agreed: “This could easily have been prime family viewing to inspire children to try different sports. #TheGames.”
