The UK version of Anchorwoman? Emily Maitlis

Media: In America there is a tiff about a model trying to be a news anchor and in the UK, they have an anchorwoman who is trying to be a model.

In olden days a glimpse of a newsreader's stocking was looked on as something shocking. But now, it seems, almost anything goes - at least as far as Emily Maitlis is concerned.

The glamorous presenter decided to liven up proceedings during a televised trailer for the BBC's 10pm news.

Perched casually on the edge of her circular desk, her stilettos dangling above the studio floor, the 36-year-old blonde swung one toned leg over the other.

Although she was wearing a relatively demure navy skirt-suit, Miss Maitlis's flash of shapely calf caused a stir among more conservative viewers who saw the 9pm trailer on Monday.

The Katie Couric of the BBC perhaps? It just looks really cheesy and amateurish.
