An Australian news reporter was left a little red faced when she accidentally dropped the C bomb during a live news bulletin on Monday.
Charlotte Goodlet of 10 News First was presenting a story about a Perth dentist who received jail time for continuing to treat patients despite the coronavirus self-quarantine restrictions.
You can watch the comical moment here:
Talking to camera, Charlotte said: "Nataliia Nairn was charged with eight c***s - counts - under the Emergency Management Act."
Realising she'd accidentally dropped the 'o' from her pronunciation of 'counts', Charlotte quickly corrected herself.
Luckily, the reporter managed to maintain her professional cool.
She continued: "The court was told her breaches could have had deadly consequences."
This isn't the first time that Charlotte's had to overcome a tricky moment while reporting.
Earlier this year, the reporter revealed on Instagram that she'd accidentally split her pants just moments before a live cross.
The reporter jokily captioned the image: "Moments before a live cross.....I had some 'breaking' news of my own ... no one can accuse me of shying away from 'cracking' yarns."
Meanwhile, fellow Aussie reporter Lana Murphy for Channel 9 made a similar gaff, saying "f*** my life" live on air during a 4pm bulletin in Melbourne.
Lana later tweeted an apology for the slip up.

She wrote: "Thanks for the love friends & apologies to those who got more than they bargained for on @9NewsMelb. Unfortunately the wrong version (clearly) of a pre-record made it to air but thankfully I have a great boss and I'll be back on your screens tomorrow."
To conclude, she quipped: "2020 though, am I right?"
Lana, Charlotte, we've never related more.
