Pat Sharp joke
Reports claims Pat presented Ms Eaton with a T-shirt bearing his likeness from the 1990s when he hosted the wacky ITV children’s TV show.
However, he reportedly went on to say: “That’s the only way I’ll get on your [blank] today.”
A shocked Ms Eaton reportedly threw the top at him before leaving the Conference News Agency Awards event in tears.
She reportedly later said online: “Yesterday I was publicly humiliated, in a sexual nature, by the celebrity host of an industry event, on stage in front of 400 of my colleagues and peers.
“Afterwards I was in complete shock and hadn’t really processed what happened. Today I am struggling with it — I feel sad, dirty and, frankly, violated.
“I have worked incredibly hard to earn my reputation and hopefully be an inspiration to other young women in the events industry.
“Yesterday however, I was belittled, sexualised and objectified in front of hundreds of people I respect.”

Pat Sharp apologises
A source reportedly told The Sun: “She was absolutely humiliated. It went down like a lead balloon.
“He’s clearly still stuck in the ’80s. He’s a vile individual.”
I upset one individual in particular and for that I am truly sorry.
And Pat is reported to have commented: “Last Friday, I made a joke on stage which was not well received.
“I upset one individual in particular and for that I am truly sorry.
“I apologised at the event to anyone who was offended and I have apologised to the individual personally too.”
