With all that is going on in the world of current affairs at the moment, it's no wonder journalists need a bit of light relief - at least that's the only explanation we can think of as to why this BBC newsreader was caught  on her phone during a live broadcast.

Presenter Joanna Gosling was seen slumped in her chair scrolling through her mobile, as the camera cut to her in the newsroom live on the BBC News channel on Monday (27 June).

While she clearly had no idea she was about to go on air, Joanna managed to style it out pretty well, quickly plonking her phone down on the desk and carrying on as if no one had seen.

The moment certainly amused the people of Twitter: 

Joanna later took to the site herself to reveal that a "technical hitch" had meant she was back on air sooner than expected. 

She wrote: 

It's not the first time such an incident has happened on BBC News, as last year, Carole Walker was caught brushing her hair live on air.
