Woman’s X-rated act on live TV slammed by reporter

Keen to steal the limelight during a live cross from the racecourse, the woman raised eyebrows as she played up for the camera.

A woman's X-rated act on live TV had the reporter quipping that her "mum will be pleased" with her actions.

Mick Fitzgerald, a UK racing reporter and former award-winning Irish jockey, was presenting live from Lingfield Racecourse on the weekend when an over-excited fan decided to make an appearance.

In the segment on Sky Sports, the woman can be seen invading Mr Fitzgerald's personal space by putting her arm around him, posing and pulling faces at the camera at the horse racing event.

The reporter tried to laugh it off, jokingly saying to presenter Martin Kelly in the studio that "it's going to be a long night for this one".

The giggling woman then runs away, allowing the reporter to momentarily continue his broadcast, only to come back into view in the background and 'flash' the viewers on live TV.

Though that's not the end of it. She runs back up to Fitzgerald as he informs the audience the track has had a lot of rain, the woman makes another face at the camera and chimes in to say repeatedly, "I'm so wet".

Quickly moving away, the reporter apologies to the viewers — while a worried Kelly looks at the camera in complete disbelief. "It is live television, Martin" Fitzgerald adds, "But, I'm sure her mum will be pleased when she sees that".

A recording of the live segment has since been shared on Twitter, with shocked yet amused viewers calling the incident "a cracker". "Omg poor Mick Fitzgerald," one person tweeted.

He was commended for handling the situation well.
