BBC Breakfast introduced the wrong guest on live TV

Oh dear...

Paul Moore

Well, this is awkward.

We’ve got a lot of sympathy for TV hosts because aside from the constant pressure of being in the public domain, there are some things that will always be beyond their control.

Poor camerawork, erratic behaviour from a guest and a million other bloopers are just waiting to embarrass them to millions of viewers, but we’ve no idea what caught out Jon Kay and Rachel Burden on BBC Breakfast.

Maybe a producer told them the incorrect order of guest appearances on the show? Did the floor manager give them the wrong information? Perhaps the autocue was moved to the wrong segment?

Whatever happened behind the scenes, this ultimately happened on live TV.

To be honest, we still want to hear Leslie’s story. It sounds fascinating!

Take a look.
