New BBC 2 drama MotherFatherSon had some fans cringing last night due to a graphic sex scene, including character Caden’s full-frontal nudity.
The eagerly awaited drama, starring Richard Gere and Helen McCroy, focused on the fractured family of an American media mogul, but it was the antics of his son Caden, played by Billy Howle, that had fans wanting to hide behind the sofa.
After Caden invited a prostitute to his flat, he told her: ‘I need you to pretend you know nothing about sex, about your body or mine’.
A very graphic sex scene ensued, showing Caden grabbing her breasts and using crude words. Viewers who had been watching the episode with their parents couldn’t believe the BBC didn’t give them a warning and took to Twitter to voice their embarrassment.
One viewer said: ‘Yikes watching #Motherfatherson with my mum and there’s a very weird sex scene. Praying for a power cut!’

The character of Caden, the son in the show, seemed very troubled, due to the pressures put on him from his dad.
And his troubles were apparent in the sex scene, which showed him acting in a rough manner with the woman he’d hired for sex.
While Twitter had mixed feelings about the show, some who were watching with their parents were left cringing.
One admitted: ‘I have few regrets in life but watching #motherfatherson with my parents is now top of the list @BBC a little warning about the graphic sex would have been useful…thanks!’

Some Twitter users were watching the new drama with their parents or Gran and couldn’t believe the BBC didn’t warn them of the sex scenes
And it seemed they weren’t alone, with another saying: ‘Note to self: never watch #MotherFather son with my gran ever again.’
The first episode of the eight part drama showed American newspaper magnate Max, played by Richard Gere, reveal his dominance over the media industry.
The eight-part drama is 69-year-old Richard Gere’s first British TV role and most were happy to see him on the show.
Twitter users couldn’t believe, despite his age, just how good looking he still is, with one saying: ‘Richard Gere is a fine looking man.’
Another fan said: ‘Richard Gere must be the most attractive nearly 70-year-old male ever,’ while another one said: ‘Why do I find Richard Gere so attractive? What is it about him?’
