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".

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?
