She's already taken on the controversial role of Belle Du Jour in Secret Diary of a Call Girl. But now Billie Piper is playing a teacher who enjoys a lesbian fling with one of her pupils. The actress,29, takes on the role of Holly, who finds herself romantically involved with a 16-year-old teenager on BBC1 drama True Love.
The pair are seen sharing a series of passionate kisses as well as a number of bed scenes. The pupil, played by Skins star Kaya Scodelario, ignores her class mates teasing and is seen telling her teacher she loves her.
A BBC source told The Mirror: 'This storyline will get some criticism but it’s been well researched and is similar to real-life events.'
