As Judy and her husband Richard Madeley made their way up to the stage, her top popped open and her bra was fully on show – and she and Richard were completely oblivious.

They began to make their acceptance speech after picking up the gong and it was only when colleague John Leslie rushed on stage to help her cover-up that she realised what had happened.

The embarrassing moment was captured by 12 million viewers as the event ceremony took place in Royal Albert Hall.

Coming in at number two was Joe Wicks accidentally breaking wind during PE With Joe, not realising that he was live on-air.

In third place was BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker who accidentally gave the middle finger to news presenter Simon McCoy in 2010.

BBC Breakfast's Carol Kirkwood getting tongue-tied while talking about 'dog walkers and joggers' also appeared on the list after she accidentally used the word 'doggers' in the segment.

Madonna also made the shortlist after she fell off the stage during a performance at the BRITS in 2015.
