BBC Breakfast just made a hilarious blunder live on air. And thanks to some quick-witted viewers, the clip is now spreading like wildfire on social media.

On the morning of 14 October at 6:30am, Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt were presenting live on BBC Breakfast. Munchetty was announcing an upcoming interview with Nicola Sturgeon about plans for a second independence referendum, when this happened:

After the clip aired, Stayt had to immediately apologise for the blunder, leaving Munchetty red-faced. Thanks to Twitter users, the clip is now spreading.

Unfortunately for Munchetty and Stayt, the blunders didn’t end there. Many viewers went on to criticise the pair for their report on the gorilla that ran away from London Zoo. While interviewing the Zoo’s zookeeper, Munchetty expressed disdain at the time it took to recover the animal:

All in all, 14 October was not a good day of reporting for the presenting pair. But at least it provided the UK with an entertaining start to their morning.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
