Victoria Derbyshire has been left red faced after missing her cue on this morning’s bulletins because she could not get her high heels on.

The BBC News presenter could be seen struggling with her shoes as the camera panned around the studio.

The 52-year-old was bent double on the far side of a desk and could be heard saying: ‘Oh my God.’

Ms Derbyshire disappeared from view as the monitor stopped in front of the interactive TV screen at about 9am.

She could be heard moving quickly towards the camera while her microphone scratching on her clothes.

The journalist finally ended up in sight of the viewers and placed her hands together to compose herself.

Barely hiding a smile, she said ‘sorry about that delay, good morning’ before launching into the morning’s bulletins.

The footage was shared online by TV critic and broadcaster Scott Bryan, who asked: ‘What is going on here?’

He tagged Ms Derbyshire in his tweet and the BBC presenter replied: ‘Oh god, I couldn’t get my very high heels on.’

She shared a picture of her black stiletto-style shoes which have two tassels at the back of each one.

Social media users appeared to back the TV host and complimented her on the fancy pair.

Samira Ahmed commented: ‘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. VERY nice shoes, btw, Victoria.’

One woman said: ‘Hahahaha….and did anyone even get to see them??? Btw, they do look lovely.’

Martin Gardner posted: ‘I mean, not really needed for television news. Don’t get me wrong, they’re lovely.’ And Nicky Mailey added: ‘Oh I love you! That made me giggle.’
