Bill Turnbull Drops C-Bomb Live On 'BBC Breakfast' In Unfortunate On-Air Slip Up

BBC Breakfast’s Bill Turnbull turned the air blue on Tuesday’s edition of the show, after dropping the C-bomb live on air.

The presenter made an unfortunate error as he tripped over his words while reading out an email.

He was trying to say: “I regularly speak to clients about illness and pass the knowledge onto other clients as well.”

But instead, Bill ended up calling the “other clients”, “c***s”.

Oops!

While Bill styled out the slip up, it was too late, as one eagle-eyed viewer had already captured the moment on video sharing site Vine.

Twitter also went into meltdown at meek and mild Bill’s colourful language:

It’s not the first time an incident like this has happened on the show though, as back in 2012 the BBC were forced to apologise when a voiceover man could be heard asking, "What the f*** is that?" during an item.

‘BBC Breakfast’ airs daily from 6am on BBC One and BBC News.
