SKY News presenter Jacquie Beltrao has shamed her son by posting a photo of his messy bedroom on Twitter — joking if anyone could "compete" with it.
The former Olympic gymnast shared a photo of her 19-year-old Tiago's untidy room on Twitter as she found it on her return from holiday, but some users have hit back, accusing her of "invading his privacy".
In what is surely a widely relatable scenario among parents, the image shows his clothes strewn across the floor, an unmade bed, his drawers left open and papers over his desk.
Sharing the image with her 65,900 followers, the sports presenter tweeted: "Just got back from my holiday, popped into my 19-year-old son's room to drop off four sweatshirts he'd left on the sofa."
She included a shrugging shoulders emoji and added: "And his room looks like this."
The TV star — also mum to Amelia, 21 and Jorge, 17 — then added a frustrated face and bomb emoji before joking: "Can anyone compete with that?"
Ms Beltrao, who lives in Kensington-upon Thames, Surrey, was met with over 200 comments to her post.
Many sided with the mum-of-three as they also shared their experience with their children and messy rooms.
Fellow Sky News presenter Sarah-Jane Mee joked: “Just been talking to a decontamination expert — want me to get his card for you?"
Fellow mum Lynn Gilbert said: "Thought my daughters was bad."
Chris Russell, clearly in the same boat, praised: “Brave to share. I cleared my 21-year-olds at the weekend — very similar.”
Paul Borley joked: "Wait till he gets a girlfriend — he'll clean it then."
Les Wilson comically questioned: "Have you been burgled?"
Mark Lanzarote, alongside a laughing emoji, joked: “Mum's gonna get it when he sees this tweet.”
And Stuart Haslam quipped: “Aaah… the infamous teenage ‘Floordrobe’.”

But of the 200 replies to her photo, some slammed her for publically shaming her son.
Ryan Shill blasted her saying: "Dunno what's worse, the state of the room or the fact his mother posted it on social media.
"I bet he'll be happy when he finds out."
Wendy Chambers fumed: "It's 'his' room, his own personal space, or at least should be.
"Sadly it’s now all over social media, posted by his mummy."
Another called Karen exclaimed: "Your own fault!
"Kids are like puppies, need to be trained."
Last June, BBC presenter Nick Cambell faced a similar reaction when he posted a photo of his daughter’s room on Twitter.
The radio star — who has 141,300 followers — said his girl’s room was "unacceptable".
