Ski Sunday host Chemmy Alcott gets dressing down from BBC bosses again over breach of conflict of interest rules after plugging her Snow Finel clothing range on screen

BBC Ski Sunday presenter Chemmy Alcott has received a dressing down from TV bosses after she was once again caught promoting her clothing range on screen. 

She breached BBC rules on conflicts of interest by wearing knitwear from the skiwear brand Snow Finel while on the show. 

Alcott, 40, has been a brand ambassador for the firm for four years – even designing some of their ranges. 

But last year the host was ‘reminded of the BBC’s guidelines in relation to commercial conflicts of interest’ after she was caught wearing the clothes on Ski Sunday as well as during coverage of the Winter Olympics

This month, she once again wore Snow Finel during Ski Sunday’s first two episodes which aired on BBC Two. 

They confirmed that they have banned the host from wearing the clothes, according to The Mirror.

‘Chemmy will not be wearing the brand in question on air again and has been spoken to,’ a BBC spokesperson said. 

Meanwhile, Snow Finel has been highlighting her on-screen outfits on social media.

BBC rules declare that presenters are not allowed to ‘appear on air wearing clothes or using products, goods or services which they have agreed, or been contracted, to promote or in which they have financial interest’.
