EastEnders most complained about BBC show

EastEnders attracted more complaints than any other BBC show in the last 12 months.

The soap was the subject of 5,500 complaints, more than twice that of any other BBC programme, according to the broadcaster's annual report.

In total, 124,000 unsolicited complaints were made to the BBC regarding its programming.

One controversial 'Enders storyline, which saw Tanya Branning drug husband Max and bury him alive, prompted 116 complaints to media watchdog Ofcom. The BBC received a further 600 objections.

Ofcom said at the time: "Taken as a whole, the scenes of the burial alive shown in both episodes had a seriously disturbing element to them.

"Overall, the storyline and its treatment had more in common with a dark psychological thriller than a pre-watershed drama."
