A BBC anchorman wore shorts and deck shoes under the desk while reading a serious news bulletin on Wednesday, the hottest day of the year.
Though broadcaster Shaun Ley, 51, was dressed in a jacket and tie from the waist up, eagle-eyed viewers spotted his legs in a split-second side view.
He appeared grim-faced and serious from the front while explaining coronavirus travel rules and the political turmoil engulfing Israel.
But one Twitter user jibed: ‘Is BBC news reader Shaun Ley keeping his cool by wearing shorts? And if so, were viewers meant to find out?’
