For the first time in the United Kingdom, a woman's nipple will appear on daytime television from Monday as part of a CoppaFeel!

CoppaFeel, a breast cancer charity for young people, has won the rights to screen the first uncovered set of boobs on British TV in an ad created for its latest #TrustYourTouch campaign. It is thought that one in every eight United Kingdom women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime.

And whilst breast cancer awareness is the key message of the campaign, there's also a definite win for women in terms of a female nipple being deemed "appropriate" for daytime television.

The advert shows inanimate objects being touched, as well as men and women touching their own chest and shows inanimate objects being touched, as well as men and women touching their own chest and nipples to check for signs of irregularities, which could be symptoms of cancer.

Natalie Kelly, CEO of CoppaFeel!, said: "In demonstrating the power of our hands and celebrating our touch as the best tool for checking, we hope to encourage more young people across the United Kingdom to adopt a healthy boob-checking habit, which could one day save their life".

Scheduled to run on TV and in cinemas, in 60 and 40-second versions respectively, it will not be shown in or around children's programmes.

Moyer is a plastic surgeon at Regional Health who does breast reconstructive surgery for women with breast cancer.

Some 5,000 people will be diagnosed during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Nearly nine in 10 women survive breast cancer for five years or more, while every year about 11,400 people die from breast cancer in the UK.
