The entire Sunrise desk was awash with expressions of mortification and horror this morning after a weather segment featured a model's bare bottom.

Weather presenter James Tobin was broadcasting live from an early morning hens party at a life drawing studio where the subject of everyone’s art was a very muscular - and very naked - male model.

During the segment, which went to air just after 6.30am, the camera zoomed in on the nude model’s bottom as he walked into the hens party while the ladies and James gathered in the background to begin drawing.

As it cut back to the studio, host Nat Barr was looking very unimpressed, while Kochie covered his face with a hand.

Sports presenter Mark Beretta’s eyebrows were to the ceiling as he held back a smirk as the camera cut over to him.

He then said, “I hope they've got plenty of pencils!” to which Kochie replied, “...and lead in them!”

Soon after the segment aired, one viewer turned to Twitter to criticise the segment, saying, “Children could be watching this rubbish while getting ready for school.”

The moment came hours after former Sunrise host Samantha Armytage shared a screenshot of herself hitting back at a troll who accused her - as well as Sunrise and Today in general - of isolating ‘intelligent Australians’ with their content.

The person said, “Yourself and the rest of the Sunrise and Today show teams is the reason why myself and other intelligent Australians choose to watch ABC News Breakfast. Less bulls**t and overreacting.”

He failed to notice, however, that Sam hasn't been involved in the morning television world for more than a year now, as she made sure to highlight in her scathing reply.

“Dear Sir, thx for taking the time to message me, but I haven't been part of the show for over 13 months (obvs, you've been watching closely),” she said, before brutally adding, “PS. Your intelligence shines through in your wonderful grammar. And first-class prose.”
