Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid had to rush off to change her dress during the breakfast TV show after suffering a wardrobe malfunction.
The 44-year-old star, who blamed "physics" for her ripped outfit, had disappeared from her desk after a news bulletin.
John Stapleton told viewers that Reid's dress had split "spectacularly" and joked that being accidentally flashed by his co-presenter was "one of the bonuses of the show they don't put in the job description".
Reid, who has been wearing glasses because of an ear infection, later wrote on Twitter: "Having one of those weeks... my zip just broke. Eye still not recovered. Glasses still on."
