“This is the best news today!” posted one.
“Go for flatter shoes Victoria. Also better for your feet,” one viewer suggested.
Fellow journalist Samira Ahmed chimed in: “I can personally testify that the phenomenon (and associated hazards) of female presenters putting on very high heeled ‘TV shoes’ just to 'walk' a handful of steps around the studio floor is a real thing.
