It does sound a lot like that, but I think he's just making random noises.

Last week when they showed a clip from Fighting with my Family I thought they'd left in a swear word: "F***, they want us!" but then I discovered one of the characters is called Zak.

Then there was that time when they left wholly-inappropriate-for-the-time-of-day footage from the opening scene of Deadpool playing while they talked about.

5:15. It could well be that wording but its a mutter at most.

I listened to it a few times, if you turn up the volume quite a bit, it is pretty audibly an f-bomb being used (you can hear the "uck" part if you listen closely enough), although you'd have to know what you're listening for and its debatable if he did use an f-bomb.


Am surprised the recorded version hadn't been edited in post-production to beep it, even if it was fairly innocent. Lest we don't forget all the fuss Westminster made over Jeremy Corbyn's "mutters" that nobody really could hear and only a lip reader could work out what may or may not have been said.

Just watched the showing during Breakfast (on iPlayer) and it's been edited out on there.

Surprised this has gone largely unnoticed on here but Victoria Derbyshire presented a standard BBC News channel style bulletin from E the other day covering the Christchurch Terror Attacks.

Pretty sure this was her first time presenting in E? Have to say I wasn't particularly impressed. The awkward pauses, the strange way she conducted the first live interview, the gazing at the camera, missing cues (see video below, 3mins in). 'I was scared' (massive pause) 'were you?' (long pause).

On several occasions now we've seen this during big breaking stories but you have to ask why the BBC continue to put her on the air as a lead presenter, when time and again she seems to struggle?

She seems competent in a rehearsed environment on her own show but seems to look awkward with anything that relies on ad-libbing.

Was watching and noticed this also - prior to this they'd not moved from the shot of the two panelists for a good five minutes, so perhaps something up with the VR as they managed to use it for the opening sequence but then it wasn't seen again until the zoom shot.

Surprised they didn't get Joanna Gosling or whoever was due to read the news into her programme to present with her. I thought that it was well established practice to double head during developing breaking stories so one can prepare while the other is talking to camera etc

Or did they not want to put Victoria alongside somebody more experienced in handling breaking news on the telly in case they showed her up?
Write that down in your copybook now.

There is always one of us pesky TV Forumers around, even at 04:56 on Monday morning, to catch such slip-ups as this random piece of Ben Bland getting ready for The Briefing. Very Happy

It was followed by a 3 minute numeral-free countdown loop, which I haven't bothered saving.

She should go back to radio where her robotic delivery and tone would be well suited.
