THE BBC has refused to axe scenes from Our Girl in which refugees relived their horrific ordeal.
Around 100 were hired as extras on just £33 a day, The Sun on Sunday revealed in January.
Some were sprayed with an industrial gun to make them “filthy” before wading through a river with screaming babies and kids.
Bosses on the Army drama indicated they would pull the scenes, filmed in Malaysia with Rohingya Muslims.
But it has since been decided their plight is a vital part of the current third series, which stars Michelle Keegan, 31.
A source said: “They hope it blows over without a fuss.
It’s not the BBC’s finest hour.”
The corporation last night insisted: “The scenes will air as planned.”
