Steph McGovern, 37, revealed she was planning on wearing “dungaree shorts” while filming a programme with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, 54. The pregnant BBC Breakfast presenter made the admission in view of her 363,000 Twitter followers this morning and addressed the debate about “whether it’s suitable to wear shorts to work”. She tweeted: “There’s a lot of chat about whether it’s suitable to wear shorts to work. “Given my bump + potential to overheat, I’m sacking off my usual filming attire and am wearing dungaree shorts to film.
I’ll probably look a right t*t when it’s on TV.
“I know my biz gang @BBCBenThompson + @seanfarrington will be more than jealous. #kneesout.”(sic)
However, in spite of Steph’s advocation of the summery clothing item, she admitted to having a “minor concern” about wearing shorts on camera in a separate tweet.
She added: “My minor concern is that the prog I’m filming is not going out until Jan so I’ll probably look a right t*t when it’s on TV and the nation is wearing winter gear!!”(sic)
Steph went on to reveal she didn’t allow her initial worries to affect her decision, as she shared a snap of herself in the sun with Hugh.
The pair stood with their arms around each other in the photo, with the celebrity chef wearing a blue shirt and jeans, while the BBC favourite embraced the season by opting for cropped dungarees paired with a shirt featuring embroidered palm trees.
Steph accessorised with orange sandals and a pair of oversized sunglasses to suit the scorching conditions.
She added the caption: “Without doubt @HughFW is jealous of my dungarees.
“He’s threatening to cut his jeans at the knees. #kneesout #filmingintheheatwave.”
Steph’s BBC colleagues and fans took to the comments section of her posts to share their thoughts on wearing shorts in a professional environment.
Ben Thompson replied: “The legs are out”, alongside a photo of himself wearing white shorts while filming BBC Breakfast from an outdoor location.
BBC journalist Josh Parry added: “Forget the dungarees… I WANT YOUR SHIRT!!”
A fan joked: “For the love of God Hugh, do not cut off your shorts.”
Another wrote: “As long as your employees don’t look like a bag of rags, as my mum would say, then you should be allowed to wear shorts to work.”
“If anyone can pull off the dungarees look, it’s you Steph”, a third gushed.
A fourth helpfully suggested: “Wear a bobble hat, then you have January showing covered.”
Elsewhere, Steph announced she is expecting her first baby with her girlfriend.
She tweeted on the micro-blogging site: “I see my news is out! Yep, I am no longer with pot belly…
I am now with child. #babyonboard.”
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6.30am.
