Some Good Morning Britain viewers have spotted a seemingly obvious detail from a debate guest's home.
The ITV daytime show featured a segment discussing conservatories and weighing up the pros and cons, which guest Angela Terry appeared in.
Whilst the environmental scientist went on to slam conservatories and their detrimental negative effects, viewers wondered if she was aware of where she was...
Angela was sitting in her home conservatory, telling the world how bad conservatories are. Yes, you read that right.
As part of the debate, Angela did realise how her setting potentially undermined her argument.
She said: "I’m in my conservatory here – when we bought the house it was here. We’re just trying to keep people safe ultimately and deal with-".
She didn't get to finish before presenter Susanna Reid pointed out the obvious, as she said: "You’re saying you’re alright in your conservatory – your conservatory’s still going to stand, but nobody else is allowed to have one from now on? Is that your point?"

Angela tried to explain herself. The scientist said: "So this house came with a conservatory on it. What the new legislation is saying, is not to build new ones because we know the world is getting warmer and warmer.
"So what you’re doing is, you’re building infrastructure and we’re doing it all round the UK, that isn’t fit for purpose when we have hotter and hotter weather.
"When we have this hot weather, the tarmac melts and all that other stuff, and people get very ill. They get heat stress, particularly if they’re pregnant or old, they end up in hospital because they can’t regulate their body temperature."
However, Angela's point was lost as viewers couldn't see past her conservatory setting.
One viewer shared on Twitter: "Just watching good morning Britain and this woman is trying to cancel conservatories bc of climate change, whilst sat in her own conservatory."
Another couldn't quite believe what they were seeing, as they tweeted: "So you’re telling me… this [woman] is saying no conservatories whilst she’s sat in her own conservatory?? Can’t even cope with this."
A third thought Angela's argument was ludicrous. They wrote: "She’s telling people not to get a conservatory while sitting in a conservatory".
As part of the two-sided debate, interior designer Siobhan Murphy argued that conservatories can be made into other usable spaces. She pointed out that if people want a conservatory, then they can make it as 'energy efficient' as possible.
The debate occurred as new rules are due to come into effect from June that aim to deter building companies from building new conservatories.
For a new conservatory to be built, it will need to be shown that it will not create ‘unwanted solar gain’.
