An X-rated phrase emerged on screen behind a presenter in an amusing Sky News blooper, leaving viewers chuckling.
Kimberley Leonard was hosting Monday’s Sky News at One, but viewers were distracted by what was going on behind her.
The blunder occurred as she went to a different page on her iPad while delivering a report on an increase in automobiles driving on the wrong side of the road on highways.
Her iPad was projected onto a giant screen in the backdrop while she did so, so viewers could see her browsing through the Sky News stream.
She didn’t notice the ad that appeared behind her until she clicked on the proper website.
Above the piece was an advertisement for the comedy show ‘S**t-Faced Shakespeare,’ which Kimberley avoided paying attention to when she swiped tabs seconds later.
However, it was well received by viewers.
One wrote, which the theatre company’s Twitter account reshared: ‘Maybe don’t show your website on telly at lunchtime, if you’ve accepted “S**t-Faced Shakespeare” as an adevrtiser. They will be delighted though. Instant viral.’
The official S**t-Faced Twitter account added: ‘Thanks @KimberleyeLeo tickets on the door and cheque in the post.. #favouritenewspresenter.’
‘*snorts very loudly* Glorious. Best of luck to @s**tfacedshake and @lsqtheatre: definitely worth paying for that web advert,’ another said.
‘That will make you lose your appetite,’ someone else said.
A fourth joked: ‘Accept all cookies? “Yeah, what’s the worst that could happen?”‘
‘You can imagine the laughter and screaming in her earpiece,’ another laughed.
The X-rated blunder came hours before Sky Sports apologised after a presenter casually swore on air without realising.
During a conversation regarding Manchester United custodian Andre Onana’s attitude, Melissa Reddy made a jaw-dropping gaffe.
She said: ‘He feels that in Onana, he has signed a big personality. We’ve already seen glimpses of that.
‘Him b*****king his defenders when they’ve made a mistake.
‘So he is calm and assured that both players will drive United to the next level.’
Concerned news reader Vicky Gomersall then commented, ‘Just going to apologies there for anyone who was upset by the use of your language there, Melissa,’ after what was sure to be a double take or two from the public watching the post-match debrief.
