A website advertised at the end of celebrity chef Iain Hewitson’s popular Network Ten show Huey’s Kitchen directs viewers to a hardcore porn website.

Hewitson told viewers at the conclusion of his April 6 show to go to http://www.ten.com.au/huey for more recipes.

But a different web address appeared on the screen — without the “au” — which sent viewers to a web page for The Erotic Network.

The page displays a “sorry cannot be found” message alongside photographs of naked women having sex.

A list of “top categories” appears further down the page, with “porn stars”, “teens” and “amateur” among the most popular.

Huey’s Kitchen, which screens at 4pm on weekday afternoons, underwent a revamp last Monday with a new title, opening and closing graphics.

“It was an error, we are not in the habit of directing our viewers to non relevant sites,” a Network Ten spokesperson said.

New Zealand-born Hewitson has been appearing in Australian lounge rooms for 19 years, starting his TV stint on the Network Ten lifestyle program Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.

Huey’s Kitchen — formerly known as Huey’s Cooking Adventures — has been on the air for 13 years.
