Donna Air cuts a stylish figure in a gingham monochrome midi dress at the launch of beauty products

She recently confused fans with her accent after being accused of disguising her native Geordie twang.

But Donna Air cut a stylish figure on Wednesday during the MOON Oral Beauty Launch in Soho, London.

The Byker Grove actress, 40, wore a monochrome maxi dress with contrasting plaid patterns.

The short sleeve piece, which fell mid-calf, was fastened together with a white satin ribbon waistband.

She completed the look with black pointy-toe pumps, a padded Coco Chanel over the shoulder bag and a short, sage green raincoat.

Donna wore her shoulder-length blonde locks in tousled waves and opted for a pink palette of blush shades to complement her natural beauty.

The launch comes after the Newcastle-born actress appeared on ITV’s This Morning to talk to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby about the return of BBC divorce drama The Split.

But viewers soon pointed out that her voice sounded much more polished than they expected before taking to Twitter to share their confusion.

One person wrote, “I really have no idea what Donna Air accent is! #shesageoride. ‘

Another said, “Where has her Geordie accent gone? You’re a northerner who no longer fakes that pathetic accent. ‘

And a third added, “What happened to Donna Air’s accent? Why are you no longer Geordie? I don’t even know where that accent comes from. ‘

It’s not the first time a woman’s mother has been accused of changing her accent, as she caused a backlash when she appeared on Celebrity Masterchef in 2016.

Viewers claim that she had thrown out her Geordie notes for a plump accent because of her relationship with James Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger brother.

In an article for the mail on Sunday, Donna addressed them directly and said, “I am an actress and a TV presenter: my job is to speak clearly, to communicate effectively with and next to the camera.

“My house has been in London for twenty years now, longer than I lived in my native Northeast.

I think it would be a lot weirder if I sounded the same as 10-year-old Donna who starred on the TV series Byker Grove and asked PJ (Anthony McPartlin, now half Ant and Dec) if he wanted to share banana milk. ‘
