Soap actress Brooke Vincent has come out to accuse the Prime Minister for not supporting equality after it was revealed he is planning to ban same-sex kisses from airing until after the watershed.

The 18-year-old actress has spoken out about PM David Cameron after it was revealed he was reportedly backing the movement to ban same-sex kisses on TV before 9pm as he doesn’t want to expose children to adult themes as it can ‘take away their innocence’.

Brooke, who plays lesbian Sophie Webster on the ITV soap Coronation Street, questioned Cameron by tweeting: "I swear David Cameron's meant to be supporting equal rights. I just think if same-sex kisses are what he is prioritising and concentrating on changing, our country's in trouble."

Programmes aired between the times of 5.30am and 9pm are deemed to be acceptable for children aged 15 and under. After the watershed mark of 9pm broadcasters are allowed to air adult themes however in some exceptions they can air before if they are for a ‘serious educational purpose.

Pinkwire are very proud. Go Brooke!
