Glee producers 'ban sex on set after young cast broke strict rules'

The creators of Glee, the hugely successful cult television show, have been forced to issue a “no sex” on set order amid claims some cast members flouted rules banning romantic contact during production.

Ryan Murphy, one of the creators and producers of the smash hit American musical comedy show, was forced to issue the special guidelines for the series’ young actors after the breach of the on-set rules.

He said he banned sex in cast trailers, in an attempt to stamp out romances between the young actors spiralling out of control and to maintain discipline.

He admitted he often felt like "the dad" on set and despite the long production days and the physical demands he insisted they keep professional and not act on their urges on set.

He declined to name the actors who had breached the rules.

“I've certainly dated people I've worked with and, you know, when you work on a set for 18 hours a day I think it's natural,” he told Heat Magazine.

"But I have a rule: don't do it in your trailer. They've broken that rule on many occasions. I'm like, 'I know you guys are young and hormonal, but don't do it in your trailer'. I'm the dad, that's what I say'."

His comments come after Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale, who play Tina Cohen-Chang and Artie Abrams, a wheelchair-bound character, on the show, were photographed at a London nightclub together and frolicking on a beach in Monaco. - Glee is set in the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio and follows the fortunes of New Directions, the school choir.

The first season began airing in May, 2009 on US channel Fox.

Performers whose songs have been covered by the Glee cast include Madonna, Rhianna, Usher, Beyoncé, Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga while Matt Lucas, the Little Britain star, is due to have a guest-starring role in the next series.

Earlier this month - Coldplay gave permission for the cult television show Glee to use their songs.

Despite refusing to co-operate several months ago Chris Martin, the band's lead singer, gave permission for the programme to use their back catalogue.

One of the show's creators said that Martin had apologised for turning down an earlier request to do a special feature episode in March.

Cover versions of songs featured on Glee have sold more than seven million copies on iTunes and last year the cast had 25 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 – only beaten by The Beatles who had 31 songs in the chart in 1964.

Murphy has dismissed rumours of an imminent Glee feature film. -
