Blunders : Lucy Frazer MP’s audition for Basic Instinct 3

An MP flashed more than she bargained for when she had a Sharon Stone-style moment in a short skirt at yesterday’s PMQs.

Lucy Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire, sent social media into a frenzy when she sat behind Prime Minister Theresa May and appeared to copy the seductive pose made famous in the 1990 film Basic Instinct.

She narrowly avoided being left red-faced as she swapped her crossed legs while May opened Prime Minister’s Questions by congratulating the UK’s Olympic team and adding her best wishes to the Paralympians in Rio.

The moment didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed Twitter users who were quick to liken the moment to the infamous Hollywood scene where Sharon Stone did the same while being interrogated.
