Well, kids TV any way.

Complaints were made when the ad was shown during a commercial break from Ice Age 2 and it was subsequently pulled.

However, that doesn't mean we can't fill you in with a few stills.

In the ad, Keira, 27, rides on a motorbike in leathers before being helped out of her clothes and lying on a bed to be photographed.

The gorgeous actress strips down in the ad and flashes audiences her bare back which has been deemed too racy (as your nan would say) for teatime telly.

Keira's ad received a number of complaints. Copyright: [Chanel]

The ASA says: "We noted that the photographer was directly involved in unzipping the actress’s garments and that there was a suggestion that she was naked aside from a bed sheet."

"We also noted that there was clear sexual tension between the pair and that they appeared about to kiss on the bed."

"We considered the ad was suitable for older children, but that the sexually suggestive material was unsuitable for young children."

However, Chanel reckon that the ad is NOT too rude and rather would choose words such as 'playful and sensual', which is how they described the ad.

Behind the scenes of Keira Knightley's cover shootHaving been voted one of the world's hottest, most fashionable young actresses, one would guess that Keira Knightley's wardrobe staple would be something lavish, perhaps designer shoes or a couture gown? No. The 27 year old reveals in the forthcoming issue of Marie Claire that her go to outfit is something rather more basic.
