Saturday Kitchen - Microphone Blunder

Bl**dy Hell Murray that's miles away!

Quite an amusing blunder this morning going into Saturday Kitchen Live, as Matt Tebbutt seemingly wasn't aware his mic was live and made a comment about something being miles away just after the continuity announcer had finished (The Sun reckons the autocue!)

I'm quite surprised he seemed so unaware, as I would have thought they would be prepared to be 'live' several seconds before actually being live!

He said the autocue on the jib camera was a long way away.

Not quite as funny as this:

This was definitely a case of the apology making it sound much worse than it actually was. I switched over just before they brought it up and was convinced he must have used the f-bomb or something.

Is bloody even listed by Ofcom as an offensive word anymore?

A rather odd blunder, literally a second before being cued. I'd echo the OP - surely you'd be ready to go live by that point.

Surely on a show like that they would have rehearsed the opening, with the jib in that position?
Write that down in your copybook now.

A rather interesting read - not sure I'd agree with all of Ofcom's classifications, as they seem a bit harsh for some words but more lenient on others.

Might have been better to link to the reference guide:
https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0023/91625/OfcomQRG-AOC.pdf
" a quick reference guide summarising the views of participants in that research on the acceptability of individual words and gestures on TV and radio which are potentially offensive"

This actually tells you where you can get away with certain words before 9pm and who's apparently who's going to get upset more with certain words. Apparently "Yid" - "Strong language, generally unacceptable. Seen as as derogatory to Jewish people by most. Some discussion about Tottenham Hotspur fans using this word and whether or not it is acceptable in that context."
