A Labour MP has been forced to defend her clothing after being accused of dressing inappropriately in the House of Commons.
Tracy Brabin was wearing a black off-the-shoulder top during a debate in parliament on Tuesday.
One viewer asked on social media: "Is this really appropriate attire for parliament?"
Ms Brabin, who used to appear in Coronation Street, was forced to insist she wasn't a slapper and hadn't "just been banged over a wheelie bin".

Who knew people could get so emotional over a shoulder... 🙄 https://t.co/sTWWiEY2TF
She ended by saying: "Who knew people could get so emotional over a shoulder..."
Nick Ferrari is asking what you think: is this inappropriate for an MP? Or should they be allowed to wear what they want?
