Lorraine Kelly was left red-faced after a viewer pointed out the inadvertently racy image that appeared on her dress.
The presenter, 60, took a moment to refer to the person’s remark on Twitter during Wednesday’s show, who claimed the animals on her zebra-print dress looked like they were ‘having a good time’.
Appearing amused by the image, she said: ‘A few of you have been talking about my dress, and the zebras.

‘Amy says loving the show but I’ve been distracted, the zebras on your shirt looks like they’re have a good, oh gosh it does, it looks like they’re having a good time she said.
‘Naughty zebras! Amy, what a mind you’ve got, I’m happy to say. Thank you to you all for pointing out the zebras are frolicking and romping.’
Lorraine then began laughing to herself over the image of the zebras, which had been printed in such a way it looked like one was on top of the other, before she attempted to carry on with the show.
Awkward: Showing a close-up of her shirt, it appeared the zebras that had been printed in such a way it looked like one was on top of the other

On Tuesday’s edition of the show, former Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn allowed cameras to accompany her to her smear test in a bid to raise awareness about cervical cancer.
This week marks Cervical Cancer Awareness Week and it is a cause close to Katie’s heart after she was involved in a heartbreaking, award-winning storyline that saw her character Sinead Tinker die from the disease on the ITV soap in October 2019.
‘Cervical screenings are the best way to protect against cervical cancer,’ Katie, 27, as she filmed herself heading to get her screening.
‘But many of us are still too shy, too scared, too embarrassed to go for our appointment. Well lucky for you, I am on my way to the hospital to get my smear test to prove to you all that there is nothing to worry about.’

Speaking to Lorraine after the screening, Katie said: ‘It was really straightforward. I felt super comfortable with Dr Sally. I didn’t feel embarrassed.
‘Yeah there were some thoughts going through my head like, “Ooh, I’ve not shaved my legs” but all in all it was a pretty smooth experience.’
She then spoke directly to viewers, saying: ‘Ladies, if any of you have had your cervical screening invitation, please make sure you go. It is so important. It could save your life. If I can do it, whilst filming it all, then I think you can too.’

Katie then joined Lorraine live to speak about the experience and the importance of smear tests, and said: ‘I think a lot of women generally do get embarrassed… and I understand that but it is so quick that there is just no need to worry.
‘Even in the pandemic, if anything, I personally found it a little bit better because everybody had the mask on, there were measures in place, it felt more protected in a way.
‘I would strongly urge anyone who isn’t at high risk, who is able to go for the smear test, if they have the invitation, they should definitely go.
‘The embarrassment side really shouldn’t take over… the doctors see it day in day out… they are really not looking at the aesthetics, it’s a very clinical operation that is done in like two minutes. It’s not painful, it’s a little bit uncomfortable but it’s fine.’
