A TV PIRATE broke into a Dr Who episode—and showed a bogus Max Headroom exposing his bottom.

A person wearing a mask of TV's famous talking head robot was seen DROPPING his trousers, BARING his bottom and was being SPANKED by someone off-screen holding a fly-swatter.

The image of the computer-created TV presenter flashed onto screens for 90 seconds as Dr Who fans in Chicago were watching their favourite show.

Earlier Max popped up on another Chicago channel when the unknown pirate broke into a news broadcast for 25 seconds.

Last night TV chiefs were trying to trace the rogue broadcaster.
