Simon McCoy Bursts Into Fit Of Laughter Over 'Goat Yoga'

BBC News Channel report about the horned mammal goes somewhat awry.

His wry take on the news has catapulted BBC presenter Simon McCoy to viral fame on several occasions.

From royal births to an unfortunate error by the Swiss air display team, McCoy can’t help but illustrate stories with his signature levity.

Yet it was the concept of “goat yoga” which had the 57-year-old television favourite chortling on Monday.

A bizarre report about the horned mammal being used to eat through grass to prevent wildfires in the western US went spectacularly awry.

“In the research for this story, we came across goat yoga and we just thought we wanted to share it with you,” weather presenter Nick Miller said, prompting McCoy to break down with a fit of giggles.
