So found Anna Friel, star of ITV detective drama Marcella.

In the first episode there’s a scene where Friel lies in a bath, and she was amused to read in the script the words ‘erase nipple?’

“I thought how were they going to erase my nipples?,” she laughs. “Wouldn’t it be more weird to be nipple-less?”

In the end her nipples were obscured not by CGI trickery but by some judicious use of steam.

So that’s OK, then.
