BBC viewers were left puzzled by a bizarre microphone attached to DUP leader Arlene Foster on Wednesday.
During an interview on BBC Breakfast, Mrs Foster was adorned with a small, furry microphone as she stood outside Stormont.
The microphone is designed to guard against the wind when interviews are conducted outdoors.
She has a kitten's head hanging from her neck, which is a bit chilling.— Groovy J (@groovy_chi) July 31, 2019
Several viewers, however, took to social media to comment on its peculiar appearance.
"Why has she got a tiny kitten's head hanging from her neck?" asked one Twitter user.
Another said: "BBC interviewed Arlene Foster and she seemed to have a hamster attacking her throat...yeh! Put on my glasses and I think it’s a microphone."

One Twitter user also questioned whether the DUP leader had a "dead mouse" stuck on her neck, while another asked: "What's that thing on her throat?"
