BRITISH Soap Awards viewers were left in hysterics this evening over the placement of Victoria Derbyshire’s microphones.
The journalist appeared during the live show to present the award for Best Storyline in a stunning pink dress with semi sheer top.
As she went up the lectern the two microphones were placed right in front of her nipples.
Taking to Twitter to discuss it, one person wrote: “Victoria Derbyshire and inappropriate lectern mic positioning on #soapawards.”
A second added: “Rather unfortunate placement of the mics against Victoria’s dress… @SoapAwards @Schofe.”
While a third remarked: “Think about the microphone planning next year please #SoapAwards.”
Victoria gave the award to Coronation Street for The Impact of Aidan’s Suicide storyline.
Accepting the gong, Shayne confessed he “wasn’t even supposed to be there”, but his friends at Coronation Street had asked him to come along.
Speaking to an audience of his castmates, viewers and actors and actresses from the competing soaps, he said: “Us guys just don’t talk enough … we need to start talking. We need to use this platform to try and tackle this taboo.”
