tuttavia, Channel 4’s broadcast left some viewersconfusedand Ofcom has now been asked to investigate whether the clip breached broadcasting rules which restrict the “simulation” of news in drama.

Uno ha scritto su Twitter: “I saw this and was really confused whether it is real or not.

Wasn’t really explained and then announced ‘Undeclared War’ on screen. Don’t know if this should be in TV or not.”

Un altro ha aggiunto: “Is it not against Ofcom rules to broadcast an advert or feature that could be mistaken for a real-life news emergency broadcast….? The Undeclared War advert might have just breached that.”

Ofcom’s broadcasting code states: “Simulated news (for example in drama or in documentaries) must be broadcast in such a way that there is no reasonable possibility of the audience being misled into believing that they are listening to, or watching, actual news.”

tuttavia, the regulator is yet to confirm whether it will investigate.

Meanwhile Adrian, 53, tweeted after the comments: “I’m not actually the Prime Minster, I’m an actor, and anyway I don’t have blonde hair.”

The Undeclared War is set in 2024 in the run-up to a UK general election, and sees a leading team of analysts at GCHQ secretly working to ward off a cyber attack on the country’s electoral system.

A release date for The Undeclared War is yet to be confirmed.
