BBC reporter accidentally drops the c-bomb live on air
In this edition of BBC News blunders, a reporter makes an awkward slip.
BBC journalist Ellie Price was reporting on Theresa May’s cabinet reshuffle outside of 10 Downing Street. She was discussing whether or not Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt would remain in his position.
In the video, Price says that they’re waiting to hear back from Jeremy Hunt — except, she doesn’t say “Hunt.” She accidentally drops the c-bomb.
It’s not the first time Mr Hunt’s name has tripped up seasoned news presenters.
On the same day, a Sky News presenter made a similar blunder:
And in 2010, BBC presenter James Naughtie accidentally dropped the c-bomb while mentioning Jeremy Hunt live on the Today program on Radio 4.
He later apologized saying it was “the most unintentional thing imaginable”.
Intentional or not, it’s still funny AF.
