Emily Maitlis’ legs spark ‘thighwatch’

Newscaster Emily Maitlis offends BBC viewers with flash of leg
Back to August 2007, Emily Maitlis upsets Daily Mail readers by showing ‘too much leg,’ sparking the newspaper’s imagined ‘thighwatch’ war.


Shortly after this incident Fiona Bruce raised the hemline on Crimewatch with a ‘dress – teamed with high heels and flawless make-up – [that] served only to distract some viewers from all thoughts of crime-solving’.

Maitlis failed to learn her lesson, reported the Mail the following December, when she ‘dared to bare AGAIN,’ choosing to present the news in a ‘racy low-cut top’.
