Earlier this morning, I pitched up at Good Morning Britain’s studios for what was billed as a Brexit debate with Dr Victoria Bateman A.K.A. the naked academic. I’d been warned in advance that she would be naked. And when I was shown into the studio, she was – totally.
We hadn’t met backstage in the green room, as Dr Bateman was in her own dressing room. Presumably she was busy writing her slogan across her torso (she kindly offered later to allow ITV to film this process). So, we were only introduced under the studio lights. We had a brief chat during the commercial break, as Dr Bateman handed her shoes to one of the crew. She seemed a perfectly nice person – just naked.
I debated Brexit (sort of) on @GMB with @vnbateman
I resisted the temptation to strip off (it was only 7:30am) and tried to stay focused 🙈
Still wondering if anyone, who wasn't already a hardcore remainer, sees a stunt like this, changes their mind, & thinks "Yes - Remain" pic.
