The BBC has apologised after a weatherman was caught giving his colleagues the finger on live TV. Oops!
Weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker, assuming the cameras weren’t rolling, flipped presenter Simon McCoy the birdie after he jokingly said his forecast would be “100 per cent accurate”.
Quickly realising he was on air, Schafernaker made an effort to hide the offending digit. The look of horror on his face is absolute gold!
Schafernaker is no stranger to making gaffes. Back in 2007 he had to issue an apology after he referred to the Outer Hebrides as “nowheresville”. And in in 2009 he accidentally told BBC Radio 4 listeners that Glastonbury could look forward to “a muddy sh*te”, instead of “a muddy sight”.
The BBC has since apologised for Schafernaker’s obscene gesture.
“Tomasz was not aware that he was on air, and whilst the gesture was only shown for a second, it was not acceptable,” said a spokesperson.
“The News Channel presenter live in the studio acknowledged a mistake had been made, and we apologise for any offence caused.”
None taken. Bloody hilarious!
And just for good measure (Warning, contains swearing):
