The TV presenter, along with her co-stars Vogue Williams, Jacqui Smith and chef Ruby Bhogal, decided to remove their makeup for the rest of the show to embrace natural beauty.

Steph, who was inspired to make the move by Miss GB contestant Elle Seline, recently undertook a social media survey which showed that 61% of women feel more confident with makeup on. She told the audience and viewers: "I'm not surprised by these results as I am someone who likes to wear make-up, I feel more confident with it."

Later on, the former BBC Breakfast star added: "I'm just throwing this out there…shall we try and do the rest of the show without our make-up on?

"What if we take it off in the break and do the rest of the show without to show everyone what we look like. I mean, I look like a baby mole without makeup on." Soon after, the presenters returned to the studio looking makeup free, and fans were wowed by the transformation.
