BBC News Presenter Joanna Gosling Caught On Her Phone Live On Air

You know how it is when you're doing really well on Angry Birds...

BBC News broadcast journalist Joanna Gosling was forced to jump into action on Monday when the cameras unexpectedly turned to her while she was flicking through her phone.

Honestly, post-Brexit, no-one seems to give a **** any more...

According to Gosling, the awkward moment was caused by a technical blunder that meant nobody had told her she was about to be broadcast live to the nation.

Thanks for all your lovely comments about the blooper yesterday! Technical hitch meant I had no idea I was up next 🙋

Luckily, she's a seasoned professional and was able to jump straight into the lunchtime bulletin. Like a true pro.

And it's not the first time BBC journalists have been caught out live on telly. In August last year, Carole Walker was seen brushing her own hair when the cameras started rolling, and shortly before that BBC Sports presenter Chris Mitchell ended his segment by using an imaginary iPad.
