CBBC drama The Next Step has reportedly sparked more than 100 complaints over a same-sex kiss scene featuring two teenage girls.  The romantic scene between actress Molly Saunders' character Jude and Dani Verayo's alter-ego Cleo aired on July 22.  The Canadian drama follows members of a competitive dance studio.  During one of its latest episode, Jude and Cleo performed a duet to Brave by singer Shane Harte, where it became clear there was much more than a friendship bubbling between them.

This moment in The Next Step is merely one story among a myriad of voices and experiences across our output."  LGBT charity Stonewall called the scene "important", but some viewers clearly did not agree and have made their complaints.  The charity's head of policy Eloise Stonborough told Metro.co.uk: "Jude and Cleo’s kiss on CBBC’s teen drama, The Next Step is an exciting moment for LGBT representation.  "It’s important for everyon
