Frock horror for Kate Garraway
GOOD Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway must be looking forward to the weekend — after her dress popped open this morning live on air.
To make matters worse, the mishap occurred during a formal interview with royal photographer Arthur Edwards about the Queen’s 91st birthday.
But it wasn’t as epic a disaster as fellow daytime TV host Judy Finnigan famously suffered when she picked up an National Television Awards in 2001 and exposed her whole bra.
Poor Kate just lost a button from the back of her on-trend mustard-coloured dress — but she clearly couldn’t get comfortable after the incident.
‘I must apologise for hoicking my dress up, but it’s burst. It has burst, I’m afraid,’ she said, adding ruefully: ‘You’d never get that with the Queen.’
But Kate’s obvious embarrassment didn’t stop co-host Ben Shephard ribbing her about it.
‘That’s the problem if you wear a mustard doily,’ he said — to which Kate shot back: ‘You’re just laughing about my trauma.’
Later, it was revealed that a whole team had ‘swarmed’ to her aid as soon as the cameras were off.
And Kate reassured viewers: ‘I’m lashed in, I’m strapped back in. Don’t look too hard, it’s all taped to my back.’
