Ms Brabin was forced to defend her attire after the dress slipped off her shoulder when she leaned on the despatch box due to a broken ankle on Tuesday.

The Labour MP for Batley and Spen has since decided to sell the dress for charity on eBay, claiming it had sold out on ASOS as a result of the coverage.

The listing says:

Black dress worn by Tracy Brabin MP in 'shouldergate' as widely covered across the media.

"This is an ASOS dress which has been flying off the shelves as a result of the coverage - and is now sold out!

"All money raised will go to Girlguiding UK to support their work helping girls build confidence and self-esteem, in the hope that they grow up to be leaders."
