Streaker interrupts Vanessa Show
Vanessa apologised to guests and viewers
A male streaker bared all on BBC One's The Vanessa Show on Wednesday.
The chat show's cameras quickly panned away as the man ran across the set and presenter Vanessa Feltz apologised to viewers.
Security was called to remove the man, and later a magazine owned up to the stunt.
The streaker and two companions had gained entrance as ordinary members of the audience.
The interruption occurred during an interview with Alvin Hall, presenter of BBC Two's personal finance show Your Money Or Your Life.
The young men's magazine Front claimed responsibility for the prank. Editor Piers Hernu said: "This show is not exactly exciting - I should know, I was on it a couple of weeks ago.
"We thought we would spice it up with a cheeky streak of genius."
The magazine was also responsible for a cream pie attack on the BBC's Noel Edmonds in January. Edmonds was fiming his show on Oxford Street in London when the hit squad swooped.
The Vanessa Show has recently been in the spotlight for fake guests rather than naked ones.
Last week four production staff from the programme were fired and another given a formal warning after an inquiry into allegations that actors were booked to appear as genuine guests.
