Veteran actor Sir David Jason is unimpressed with the trend for sexy TV adverts - because he's constantly worried his young daughter will see inappropriate images.
The British star, most famous for his role as Del Boy Trotter in classic U.K. sitcom Only Fools and Horses, admits he monitors the shows 10-year-old Sophie watches, but is often caught out by ads.
He tells Britain's Radio Times, "I try to protect what she sees on television, but you can't.
"Take the adverts. I was watching SpongeBob (SquarePants), a favourite cartoon of ours, but suddenly a scent advert came on with this girl stripping off as she walks towards the camera. It's done for mums but they forget a lot of girls are watching these powerful images."
And Jason is also upset by the amount of swear words featured on TV, adding, "The trouble is now we have stand-up comedians who have forgotten about innuendo. In music hall days, and especially at the Bbc, you were never allowed swear words... Today they push down the barriers.
"Take the F word. It's become commonplace. Language has implications and it's offensive if it's meant to denigrate something or someone. Only Fools had nothing unpleasant, really."
