Everett shocks viewers with racy remark
The My Best Friend's Wedding actor was promoting his autobiography on the show when he began to reminisce about visiting provincial cinemas as a child.
After describing the theatres as "dark and sexy", the 48-year-old mentioned a sexual activity which could take place in the back row.
Presenters Charlie Stayt and Suzanna Reid quickly moved away from the subject, reminding him that the interview was intended for a breakfast time audience.
Three people called the BBC to complain about the remark, which was broadcast live at 9.09am.
A spokeswoman said: "Rupert did make an inappropriate comment which sometimes happens on live broadcasts when we have no control over what our guests say."
She added: "The rest of the interview was fine."
