Ofcom has upheld a complaint from a businesswoman regarding the broadcasting of a real cell phone number on the drama"EastEnders." Lisa Edwards' real cell phone number appeared during an episode of the show; as a result she received numerous text messages, some obscene. The network speculated that since Ms. Edwards also told the newspaper the Sun about the incident, that may have added to the total number of incoming messages. The BBC has apologized.
