ITV star forced to make urgent correction after X-rated mistake | UK | News

An ITV news anchor had to quickly correct herself live on air after she made an unfortunate four-letter gaffe saying the Chancellor’s surname.

Broadcaster Nina Hossain was speaking to a correspondent who was out in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, when she mispronounced Jeremy Hunt‘s last name.

During the segment today (Thurs) she said « You spoke to Mr C*** », before quickly correcting herself and saying « Mr Hunt, how did he respond to calls for her to resign? »

Viewers have since taken to X, formerly known as Twitter after catching the blunder live on air. It’s not the first time broadcasters have made an X-rated blunder with the politician’s name.

In June 2018 on BBC Radio 4’s Today, presenter Justin Webb also made the four-letter mistake when reading the Chancellor’s name from a newspaper article.


Mr Webb said: « The paper says the health secretary Jeremy C*** … Hunt is understood to favour a cap on social care. »

A year after Mr Webb’s error, BBC presenter Victoria Derbyshire suffered the same fate. Addressing MP Steve Brine, Ms Derbyshire said: “You say the man you are backing, Jeremy C***…”

“I’m so sorry, Jeremy Hunt. I’ve never said that before in my life. It’s normally men who say that so I really, really want to apologise.”

Viewers who saw the ITV mistake today, were quick to make their feelings known on X, formerly Twitter, with one posting: « Could barely believe my eyes & ears when Nina Hussain accidentally referred to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt as Mr C***. A Freudian slip maybe? Fair play to Nina, she styled it out well [sic]. »

Another added: « Poor Nina Hossein. She’s just referred to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt as “Mr C***” on ITV’s lunchtime news. Isn’t Live TV wonderful? »

Someone else noted: « Nina Hossein has just dropped the C bomb on ITV news whilst discussing Jeremy Hunt« .
