A Good Morning Britain commentator has spoken out after viewers were left reeling after hearing the word 'b***h' muttered off camera.
However, the celebratory mood appeared to take a sour turn when GMB viewers' eager ears pricked up at the sound of a swearword being uttered while broadcaster Kate Garraway was talking about Queen Camilla. Prepare to wince in second-hand embarrassment:
Viewers immediately flooded to social media in shock over the language they heard, quick to speculate about what context it was used in - and oh boy, did some people hear some very different things.
One Twitter user said: "I can’t rewind tv, but was someone’s mic still on , called someone a b***h? And it not being a good look #gmb #goodmorningbritain."
"Same here I heard Kates name also...." another responded.
A third said: "Sorry but what on earth was that sound issue, pretty sure I heard 'b***h' in the background during this Camilla bit."
"Well, I thought I'd drop by and have a nosey at what was going on, and the first thing I hear is someone (I'm sure it was the woman in the green dress) calling someone a b**ch [cry-laughing emoji]. Is this an indication of how the day is going to go? I may just watch this after all [laughing emoji] #GMB," a fourth added.
Another wrote: "That moment when the @itvnews @GMB cuts to Kate Garraway but you can hear a presenter in the background saying 'she's getting a reputation for being a complete and utter b***h' - oops."
And a final resolved: "Susannah and Ben blushed and smirking says everything. It was defo their convo we overheard the word 'b***h' in #GMB #goodmorningbritain #Coronation."
Luckily for Susannah Reid and Ben Shephard, the real swearer in question has since owned up to slipping out the 'b' word on live TV.
Petronella Wyatt took to Twitter to clarify that not only is she the commentator who let a swear word slip, but to also give some context about how she used the word too.
The post reads: "Oops. Was off air this morning @GMB when a mike picked me up having a private chat about how a royal had been unfairly smeared in some quarters as a b….. apologies if anyone thought it referred to them. It didn’t!!"
