Sharon's sartorial choices have been adventurous of late, including statement jewellery and sequins, but it was last night's leather that garnered the most attention.

And she's not the only presenter whose wardrobe choices cause a stir among the public - meteorologist Jean Byrne has become just as famous for her personal style as her work, while Miriam O'Callaghan and Grainne Seoige's ensembles are often subjected to praise and scrutiny after their time on air.
