No, Rachel Johnson did not expose her breasts on Sky News on Thursday night (February 14).

... she was wearing a "boob tube".

The ex-Celebrity Big Brother housemate and journalist (and sister to Tory MP Boris Johnson) was presenting topical news show The Pledge when she decided to pay tribute to Victoria Bateman, the naked anti-Brexit campaigner who went on Good Morning Britain earlier this week.

Unbuttoning her blouse, Remain campaigner Rachel left her co-hosts stunned as she said: "As I know it can be hard to get your voice heard about Brexit nowadays.

“It feels like we’ve hit saturation point. Enter pro-EU campaigner Victoria Batemen who’s come up with a striking way this week to get herself noticed.

“Appearing across the media completely starkers to make various points about Brexit – leaving Britain naked.

“So in tribute to Dr Baker, I’ve decided to follow suit – every time we decide to talk about Brexit just to make sure I get noticed.”

For viewers at home, Rachel's seemingly-naked chest was obviously blurred. But in the studio, Carole Malone pointed out that Nick Ferrari had gone bright red.

And while the panel were in fits of laughter, June Sarpong managed to compose herself enough to compliment her fearless co-presenter, saying: "Go Rachel! You look good."

Still, everyone was thankful as Rachel finally announced: "I'll get dressed. I'll put them away."

But just so everyone's clear, Rachel didn't actually go topless.

"I was wearing a boob tube," she tweeted following the show. "As you were folks!"

Thanks for clarifying, Rachel.

And hey, at least she didn't rap.
