Nat Barr pokes fun at Sunrise studio Christmas tree mishap

The Sunrise studio has been looking extra festive but a minor detail in one of the on-set Christmas trees caused a bit of a stir on Monday morning.

Natalie Barr was presenting the news in front of a tree beautifully decorated in red and gold, but eagle-eyed viewers were quick to notice a misplaced decoration, with the co-host taking to Instagram to laugh off the mishap.

“Really loving our studio Christmas decorations this year.. 😂🤦‍♀️#hohoho,” she wrote on Instagram, along with a selfie next to the tree.

The fuss reportedly all had to do with a poorly-placed decoration that simply read 'HO', which was eventually removed from the set.


Some of her Instagram followers also had a good laugh over the decor, with one person writing "Ho!" along with a host of fire and laughing emoji.

Another quipped: "Don’t believe it for a second Nat," adding a wink emoji, while a third wrote: "They are the best yet".

Others however gushed over the hosts look, with one follower writing: "You look hot Nat!"

Another asked: "Where is your shirt from? Beautiful."

It comes after fellow Sunrise stars were left in tears after Kochie’s ‘weird’ joke live on-air last week.

The 65-year-old was speaking with The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart during Thursday morning’s show and made an awkward joke about his blue-spotted white shirt, that left Edwina Bartholomew in tears of laughter.

“I had a late night last night,” she explained. “Stop talking about Matt’s balls going up the chute.”
