Oops! A blundering TV news presenter has been left red-faced after asking Bee Gees star Robin Gibb if his brother Maurice was watching the show – despite the fact that he’s been dead for seven years.
Sky presenter Steve Dixon was interviewing the singer over the weekend after Carry On star Barbara Windsor revealed that she once slept with Maurice.
Probing Gibb about his brother’s alleged affair, he quipped, “Is Maurice watching this now?”
Gibb calmly replied: “He’s not with us, he’s gone. He died in 2003.”
Watch the video below (it’s rubbish quality, btw):
A spokesperson for Sky, “These things happen on live TV.”
Not if you do your research, they don’t ;-P
