Woman Appears On BBC Wales With Sex Toy On Shelves Behind Her
Viewers of BBC Wales Today got slightly more than they bargained for when they spotted a woman giving an interview about unemployment as a result of the coronavirus pandemic appeared with a large sex toy on the shelves behind her.
Once you've seen it, you can't unsee it.
It's become something of a theme during the periods that everyone has been confined to their home. People giving interviews on telly have strategically positioned things behind themselves within the eyeline of the viewer.
Usually it's whatever book they're trying to flog at that particular time, but on this occasion, it was something completely different.
Yvette Amos was appearing on the regional BBC news programme yesterday when viewers spotted that something was up.
As she told viewers that people were being 'passed over' for jobs as a result of the pandemic, the eyes of everyone watching were trained on the top shelf of the bookcase behind her.
There it was, staring out at the world.
However, it does appear that the whole thing might have been a joke. If you look further at the image, beyond the large sex toy, you'll see that there is also a pair of bloody handprints on the door behind her.
That suggests that it all might have been a bit of fun.
Amos has quickly become a viral sensation, with some online calling for her to receive a 'damehood' for her hi-jinks.

She turned what could otherwise have been a fairly bleak news segment into something amusing.
Not that there's anything amusing about unemployment in Wales, but she's definitely opened the issue up to a wider audience, too.
OK, she did it in a roundabout way, but if even one more person learns about it, her work is done.
One person tweeted: "This lady has just been live on BBC Wales News. I think she should maybe have checked her top shelf first!"

Another said: "Doing our country proud... damehood pending."
A third person wrote: "How do you miss that when you're doing the dusting?"
Funny though it was, it's always worth checking your shelves before appearing on a Zoom call with anyone at the minute.
After all, this might have been a planned joke, but if you got caught out for real, you'd be mortified.
Either way, Yvette Amos brought a smile to a few faces, and that's important right now.
