Good Morning Britain viewers were left in turmoil earlier today when Richard Madeley swore twice during his first show of the week.
The veteran presenter is standing in for Piers Morgan during his Easter break.
During an interview with The Voice UK winner, Molly Hocking, the host let out a little swear.
He asked at what point the champion thought: “S**t I won it?”
Molly, Olly Murs and Charlotte Hawkins breezed past the moment, seemingly ignoring the rather large swear word.
However, it didn’t escape viewers who flocked to Twitter to comment on the slip-up.
One said: “This is why we need Madeley back on morning TV ‘Oh s**t’”
Another shared: “I was genuinely having a shit when I heard the voice of Richard exclaim ‘oh s**t’ from the living room…..thought I’d imagined it….apparently not.”
A third added: “Oh dear Richard, swearing on live telly!”
It came after Richard told London Mayor Sadiq Khan to stop “d**king around” in an interview earlier on the show about knife crime.
Richard naturally apologised for his swear word, but it seemed even he didn’t realise he had said it.
He said: “Apparently I may have said the word beginning in S and ending in T. I didn’t realise I’d said it.
The host added: “I do apologise.”
Earlier today, Good Morning Britain viewers were left squirming by Richard’s interview with one of Britain’s Got Talent’s Golden Buzzer winners.
He caught up with some pupils from Flakefleet Primary School and their headteacher David McPartlin.
Richard said their performance which bagged them David Walliams’ Golden Buzzer “wasn’t perfect”.
It was that comment in particular which left viewers squirming as they tuned into the show this morning.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Richard Madeley’s interview with the school kids was terrible, saying their audition wasn’t perfect!”
Another added: “Richard Madeley reminding Flakefleet Prinary school that their much-celebrated BGT Golden Buzzer performance ‘wasn’t perfect’ someone’s gotta bring them back down to Earth eh!”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV from 6am.
