Once more, Peppa Pig is at it. The beloved children's programme has debuted its first homosexual characters, two lesbian polar bears, after repeatedly fat-shaming Daddy Pig.

A new episode called "Families" has Penny Polar Bear telling Peppa about her two mothers, "One mummy is a doctor and one mummy cooks spaghetti... I love spaghetti."
