The impact of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film is massive, even more so since the film releases on Valentine's Day.

ITV's This Morning, like many other TV shows, thought it would be a good idea to run a segment on the most romantic date of the year.

And they tied in Fifty Shades by running a segment on 'Bondage for Beginners' and getting semi-naked models to demonstrate bondage techniques with the help of a sexpert.

Some of the sex toys featured included nipple clamps and a Wartenberg Pinwhell.

The segment ran at 10.30am yesterday prompting reaction - both positive and negative - on Twitter, and complaints to Ofcom. 

Ofcom have so far received 74 complaints and a spokesperson has said they have "not yet decided" whether or not to proceed with an investigation.
