According to the Daily Post, several women were asked about the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment, with many of them saying that they're struggling to find work.

One of those women was Yvette Amos. She appeared on news programme BBC Wales Today to discuss her unemployment experiences during the pandemic.

While many were trying to listen to her points, viewers couldn't help but notice a dildo on a bookshelf behind her.

The image was shared on Twitter by journalist Grant Tucker, who tweeted: "Perhaps the greatest guest background on the BBC Wales news tonight. Always check your shelves before going on air."

While many found the mishap hilarious, some social media users believed it might have been a prank or the dildo was intentionally placed in the background. The clip also divided the internet on the important issue of whether the item was actually a sex toy or a novelty sculpture.
