BBC One Announcer's Phone Goes Off Live On Air During Trail For 'The Great British Bake Off'

A BBC announcer has learnt a valuable lesson about putting your phone on silent at work, after his mobile went off live on air.

The out-of-vision presenter was providing a link over the credits of ‘Pound Shop Wars’ on BBC One on Wednesday (19 August) night, when his phone started ringing.

The announcer stumbled over his words as he promoted ‘The Great British Bake Off’, before quickly apologising for his blunder.

However, some viewers captured the embarrassing moment on video-sharing site Vine, with the clip being circulated online.

It wasn’t the only slip-up that came before the ‘Great British Bake Off’ that day, as during an appearance on Radio 2 earlier in the day, Mary Berry accidently revealed which baker would be sent home in the latest episode.

Speaking to Mary about the show, host Chris Evans said, “You’ve already lost two, you don’t hang around do you Mary?” Mary replied: “Wait a minute, we’ve already lost three”.

She then listed the names of the contestants she believed had already left: “We lost Marie last week, [REDACTED], and on the first week it was the lovely chap with his little hat on."
