This year’s Melbourne Cup may be happening without fans – but that hasn’t stopped thousands celebrating the iconic horse racing festival across Australia.
Channel 10 reporter Lee Steele was presenting coverage from one such booze-up at the Ascot racecourse in Perth on November 3.
But the debauchery soon made its way onto the cameras when she was shockingly interrupted by a woman licking her ear.
In the report, the beverage-holding woman creeps up behind Lee and licks her ear.
“Oh God,” she screams, unsurprisingly horrified at what has just happened.
Things then got even worse for the journalist. As Lee exclaims “I don’t know what’s going on behind me anymore”, a suit-clad man walks past, drops his trousers and exposes his bum for the camera.
The quick-thinking cameraman zooms in on Lee to crop out the nudity but the damage has been done and Twitter was soon awash with comments from viewers.
Many praised Lee for keeping calm, with one saying: “Poor Lee Steele but what a trooper. Wasn’t sure if she wanted to punch them, or get stuck into a few afterwards. She is a good sport.”
Another said: “We don’t deserve nice things and we don’t deserve this legend Lee Steele.”
A third wrote: “This is disgusting and assault. I'm sorry you had to put up with these gutter antics Lee Steele. You handled it with more grace than I would have shown.”
The Melbourne Cup, held at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, attracted 80,000 racegoers last year and with it, plenty of famous drunken debauchery in the stands.
But the ongoing coronavirus pandemic meant this year’s festival is being held behind closed doors.
