Vick Hope has hit back at TV audiences who have been criticising her clothing online.
Hope, who is this week presenting Morning Live with Gethin Jones on BBC One, has been criticised by some who perceived her choice of dress to be too risque for breakfast TV.
One comment said: "It is really inappropriate to be wearing a mini dress whilst sitting presenting this show. Putting me off my breakfast!"
Another said: "Please tell the female presenter to wear longer skirts!! Its not the first time!"
Hope later responded to the negative comments on her Instagram Stories. She posted a selfie along with a caption that said: "Good morning! It's not the first time. Doing the radio from MCR this week, HOWLING at all your responses to my short dress Karens, you legends. They're legs, Gill and at the top of them there's a vagina."
Hope is currently standing in on Morning Live for Kym Marsh alongside regular presenter Gethin Jones. The consumer affairs show features a number of other presenters including former Olympian Sam Quek, Sara Cox, Rav Wilding and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh.
Hope recently criticised the government for not doing more to create a diverse curriculum in schools.
Speaking to Kate Thornton on her White Wine Question Time podcast in the aftermath of Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, Hope said: “There's been so many petitions – they're not really responding,” she said. “They're like, 'Oh no, we've got enough of a diverse curriculum' and it's just not true.”
She continued: “It's so simple and yet so effective, and I just don't understand why the politicians aren't getting it. I guess that they just want to maintain a system in place that has benefited them.”
Hope called on for more Black history and culture to be taught in schools.
