    Someone has to change! Today hosts Brooke Boney and Belinda Russell wear similar outfits on set – after THAT ‘jacketgate’ scandal

    The ‘jacketgate’ scandal at Channel Nine made headlines around the world back in 2017. 

    And this week, Today hosts Brooke Boney and Belinda Russell narrowly avoided another mishap as they crossed paths in studio wearing similar outfits.

    As Belinda took over the reins from Today star Brooke for the mid-morning program Today Extra on Thursday, the pair posed for a funny photo showing off their looks.

    Brooke looked chic in a beige long sleeve blouse, which she teamed with high-waisted terracotta trousers.  

    Belinda also looked stylish in a blouse and brown skirt, matching Brooke. 

    The post was shared by the Today show and was captioned: ‘Uh-oh! Time for another “Who Wore It Better?” Hint: it’s both of them.’

    Back in January 2017, footage showing Channel Nine newsreader Amber Sherlock berating Julie Snook for wearing a white jacket was leaked online. 

    It soon became known as ‘jacketgate’ and made international headlines.

    The leaked footage showed Amber demanding Julie put on a jacket so the two could avoid both wearing white on TV at the same time.

    Speaking to her producer, Amber said: ‘I need Julie to put a jacket on because we’re all in white. I asked her before we came on … Julie you need to put a jacket on.’

    Julie fought back saying she hadn’t had time to change, but Amber refused to back down, snapping back: ‘ Come on I told you two hours ago.’ 

    Demands: The leaked footage showed Amber demanding Julie put on a jacket so the two could avoid both wearing white on TV at the same time. The sports presenter later appeared on air wearing a black jacket, and was the object of much public sympathy when the footage went viral

    Amber blamed the meltdown on the pressures of live TV, telling 9Honey in May 2017 the experience had been a ‘learning curve’.

    ‘I was absolutely mortified, and, of course, hurt. I think I’m a kind, generous person,’ she also told The Daily Telegraph.

    ‘I am a mum, I have a family. And I was devastated. I am only human at the end of the day, and I think people forget that.’

    Meanwhile in 2018, Julie told Popsugar that she was ‘grateful that it’s over.’
