BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid has been left red-faced after flashing her knickers live on air.

Viewers got more than they bargained for when the broadcast journalist unwittingly revealed her cream underwear while reading the headlines from the papers.

The embarrassing gaffe occurred as she attempted to cross her legs and pull down her dress at the same time.

Eagle-eyed viewers quickly reacted to the slip online.

"Susanna Reid's just given us another flash...she's unstoppable that woman!" one viewer tweeted.

Former professional rugby player Ian Hunter said: "Susanna Reid brightens up BBC news. Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed."

Another commentator wrote: "She knows exactly what she's doing, seen many other clips and the facial expression say's it all."

This is not the first time Reid has given viewers an eyeful.

In September, the strictly Come Dancing contestant also revealed black and white underwear while wearing a navy dress.
