Paper runs comment by Blue Peter's Zoe Salmon on ban on 'sexy' presenters, saying 'if red lippy is Ok for her, it's Ok for me'

The Sun has recruited Snow White in its battle against BBC political correctness. The paper reports on a BBC ban on children's presenters wearing red lipstick or provocative clothing, and recruits former Blue Peter star Zoe Salmon to comment. Melissa Hardinge, an executive editor at Cbbc, told a Bafta panel on the future of children's television: "Obviously sexualisation of girls is something we take incredibly seriously. We try and show fantastic female role models. I go onto the floor of Friday Download and make them take their red lipstick off, the presenters. The older end of our six-to-12 age groups are very interested in relationships, and we have to show positive role models and the correct way of going about having relationships." Salmon responds »
