Australian TV host has tantrum over similar white shirts

08:50 13 January, 2017

Australian television was set to be even whiter than usual on Wednesday after three women showed up to an interview wearing the same colour.
 
Host Amber Sherlock, reporter Julie Snook and psychologist Sandy Rae realised their fashion mix-up moments before going on-air for afternoon news program Nine News Now.
 
In an excruciating off-air video, Sherlock and Snook engage in a passive-aggressive exchange lasting several minutes, with Rae looking on awkwardly throughout.
 
It begins with Sherlock referring to her colleague in the third person: "I need Julie to put a jacket on. I asked her before we came on… I told you two hours ago."
 
Snook, obviously irritated, says she has been flat-out, apologises and offers to find a jacket.
 
Sherlock responds by picking up her phone and starting to browse. "There can't be three of us and I've made this clear two-and-a-half hours ago," she says, not looking up.
 
"Amber, if it's an issue, I can get on out of here," Snook says.
 
"It is an issue," Sherlock responds. "Go and get a jacket."
 
After further bickering, Snook says her shirt is actually blue.
 
"It doesn't look like it," Sherlock snaps.
 
Snook eventually appears on-screen wearing a jacket and the segment goes ahead as planned.
 
It's a professional performance - but look closely and you can definitely spot some tension behind the rows of smiling white teeth.
 
Sherlock later told Nine Honey that she "probably overreacted".
 
"Live TV can be a pretty stressful beast, at times," she said.
