Watch the moment a Sky News anchor said the f-word very loudly live on air


ON THURSDAY, SKY News anchor Ian King was interviewing a guest via videolink when he had a bit of a mishap.

Just as the interview was getting underway, a lead fell out.

But instead of brushing it off and pretending it didn’t happen, King instead opted to say “F***!” very loudly and lived out every news anchor’s worst nightmare.

He immediately apologised for the slip-up live on air.

I must apologise. I said a rude word. One of my leads fell out there. I do apologise for that.

And later reiterated his apologies on Twitter.
