BBC South weather reporter Sam Fraser became the victim of an awkward subtitle error that declared she was talking about sex live on air.
Subtitles have become known for the odd X-rated error, and Sam’s stint on explaining the weekend’s weather on Friday left her feeling a little flustered.
After her report seemingly went off without a hitch, a screengrab started making the rounds online, showing the subtitles claiming she talked about ‘Seven becoming northwesterly for the sex later.’
Thanks to subtitles being less than reliable at times, the translator clearly misunderstood, and gave fans reading along with the report a bit of a shocker.
Luckily, Sam handled it like a pro and saw the funny side, reposting the image herself with the statement: ‘I’m almost positive that’s not what I said…’
Viewers couldn’t resist making a giggle of the classic mistake, with one fan telling her: ‘The sub-titling on BBC South Today is always something to be marvelled at. But this wins top prize.
‘How to make the weather forecast more exciting on a Friday night. Brings new meaning to the phrase – One for the weekend, sir?’
‘The BBC subtitles are the best,’ joked another.
‘Obviously not if you’re trying to understand what is being said but for the entertainment value alone I am very happy to pay my licence fee.’
‘People not in the south east of England must be very sad,’ quizzed another.
‘Lockdown means they missed out on a banging night.’
