An Australian TV presenter has defended a 'sexy' photo of herself that was taken by her 15-year-old son and posted on Instagram.

The snap shows Ajay Rochester, who used to host Biggest Loser Australia, in a 'sexy' white corset and stockings while lying on a leopard-print settee.

Alongside the picture, the mum wrote: "Massive shout out to... my incredible 15 year old son and budding photographer for taking this picture."

Ajay said the shot is entirely innocent – but she was hit by a wave of criticism from followers claiming her pose was 'disturbing' and 'creepy' due to the fact it was taken by her teenage son.

"My son, who is nearly 16, wants to be a professional photographer. We snapped that shot in a fun moment after having shot me in wedding dresses and my friend in a bikini all day long.

"Why would you take that photo and make it dirty? Because I was just lying there resting my back (after a car accident I had been in a few days before had me in severe pain) and he said that would make a good photo.

"He was right. It was in fact, a replication of another photo I had done months before with a professional photographer, wearing even less clothing so it showed that he was watching and learning about what works as a pose. Yay for him!"
