BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin was left red-faced this morning as she suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction live on air.

Who’d be a tv presenter? Especially on LIVE TV… Poor Louise!

Just seconds into the broadcast, co-star Dan Walker leaked her confession: “It’s actually so dark when we got here, do you want to reveal your secret live…?”

The mum-of-two was forced to confess that she had put her dress on the wrong way round, stating: “I want to admit the fact that I’ve actually got my dress on back to front!

“I’m sorry but I nearly threw Dan – you’re quite difficult to throw, but I just suddenly looked down and thought, ‘Ooh, my dress is on back to front’ with ten seconds to go. Apologies for that!”

Sports presenter on the show Sally Nugent made the fair point that if she hadn’t admitted it, viewers probably wouldn’t have even noticed, quipping: “Would anyone have actually known that? You could have totally got away with that”.

“It just gave me a fright, that was all,” Louise said.

The TV host reportedly dashed from the set and switched her dress the right way around just before 6.30am.
