It’s happened. The worst thing to ever happen on Australian television.
(Well, apart from that time Sophie Monk sent James packing on The Bachelorette…)
Two weather reporters on two completely different channels wore the same exact dress at the same exact time in the exact same place.

Somebody call Amber Sherlock and Julie Snook because this is bigger than the great ‘Jacketgate’ scandal of January 2017.
Most average Aussie viewers wouldn't have noticed the "frock fiasco" seeing as the two segments were airing on two different channels at the same time.

But eagle-eyed media types were quick to snap - and tweet - images of the situation.

And, after all:
