  TV presenters call for Tatu song to be banned
Updated 01 February 2003, 17.13

TV presenters Richard and Judy have called for the single by pop duo Tatu to be banned.

The Russian teenagers - Julia Volkova, 16, and Lena Katina, 17 - are set to top the charts this Sunday with their single All The Things She Said.

But Richard and Judy and some newspapers say the video to the song is sending out the wrong message.

The video features the girls kissing in the rain behind bars while dressed in school uniforms.

'Way too far'

Channel 4 presenter Richard Madeley said of the song: "I think they should ban it, I think radio stations should take it upon themselves to ban it. This is going way too far.

"I think people should boycott the song and 90% of our viewers have said they will."

Judy Finnegan added: "It's not the song, it's not the girls themselves, it's the way their manager has admitted that he's marketed them as under age entertainment."
