BBC's Louise Minchin wears dress back to front on live TV

A BBC Breakfast presenter gave viewers a giggle when she revealed that she had her clothes on back to front after getting dressed in the dark.

Louise Minchin, 48, was ten seconds away from going on air at the studios in Salford, Greater Manchester, this morning when she spotted her - which she told her co-host, Dan Walker about.

But Walker proved to be a useless confidant as, minutes into the programme, he teased Minchin into telling the viewers - of which there are often more than 1.5million - about her embarrassing mistake. 

Walker said: 'It was actually so dark when we got here, that - do you want to reveal your secret live?'

Minchin then giggled and looked down at the offending garment - a dark blue, figure-hugging, long-sleeved dress with a bright floral pattern.

She said: 'I want to admit the fact that I've actually got my dress on back to front.'

'I'm sorry but I nearly threw Dan – you're quite difficult to throw.
