The BBC is under fire after the f-word was said eighteen times in an expletive-laden episode of army drama Our Girl.

Audiences were furious with the amount of swearing in the first episode of the show’s third series, which aired post-watershed on Tuesday night.

In total 28 expletives were uttered by the characters in the BBC1 programme including  s***, p***, a***, t*** and b*******.

Last night’s episode followed army medic Lance Corporal Georgie Lane, played by Michelle Keegan, 30, on a humanitarian mission to Nepal.

Fans slammed the ‘unnecessary’ bad language and complained it was up on the previous two series, reports the Sun.

Alex Tunnicliffe asked on social media: ‘What’s with all the swearing? Never been like this in previous series. Not very BBC, I must say.’

Another fumed: ‘Poor first episode littered with unnecessary bad language, truly disappointed.’

Kathryn Maclean asked: ‘BBC is all that swearing really necessary?’

One fan added: ‘I love Our Girl, but noticed there’s so much more bad language in this series. I’m shocked.’

Fans were also unimpressed with Georgie’s ‘flawless’ hair and make-up and said it was as ‘unrealistic’.

One viewer quipped: ‘How does Michelle’s make up stay flawless when on a relief mission in Nepal and mine can’t even survive my commute to work.’

Another tweeted: ‘Michelle Keegan on a Nepalese Humanitarian Mission complete with Mascara, lip gloss and eyebrow pencil.’
