Watch the awkward moment a Sky News reporter has meltdown live on air
Sky News reporter Jon Craig was halfway through a live link from the studio about Brexit when he struggled to get his words out.
He said: “Theresa May and David Davis are pleading with opponents of Brexit to back the legislation being debated by MPs today…are pulling the European Union.”
Poor Jon realised his gaffe immediately, and it hit him very hard.
He was seen saying “oh god” over and over as he put his head in his hands.
The reporter failed to recover from his blunder and producers were forced to intervene.
The news anchor quickly appeared on the screen and said to viewers: “We’ll go back to Jon Craig as soon as soon as we’ve sorted the issues there.”
Viewers of the incident quickly took to social media to have a laugh about Jon’s blunder.
One suggested that Jon “didn’t know that he was live”.
Another offered their support for Jon, saying that he had “had a bad day at the office”.
This isn’t the first time Jon has slipped up on air.
He infamously got his letters mixed up as he spoke to former Secretary of State Jeremy Hunt on air, addressing him by a swear word that rhymes with his last name.
Poor Jon also got caught swearing outside Big Ben earlier this year.
