BBC News reporter left grimacing as private conversation is broadcast in mortifying live blunder | The Sun
A BBC NEWS reporter was left grimacing as a private conversation was broadcast in a live blunder.
The broadcaster's flagship 1pm news bulletin came live from the Eurovision village in Liverpool ahead of the contest.
Jane Hill was standing by to present the show when a private conversation was accidentally aired.
Footage had been playing out before it suddenly cut and Jane appeared on screen.
She could be heard saying: “I can do. I’ll ad-lib the trail, as part…"
Jane then realised her mic was live and she was on air before freezing and grimacing.

Recently the BBC has suffered a number of blunders, including one of their studios being plunged into darkness.
It happened during a regional news bulletin on Look North, when the presenter opened the show as normal.
Dave Edwards told viewers: "Good morning from Look North, hope you're well, these are our main stories this morning."
But before he could read the headlines, the lights in the studio unexpectedly shut off.
Meanwhile, the BBC News channel was thrown into chaos as cameras accidentally cut to the presenter who had no idea she was still on air.
Anchor Lukwesa Burak had just finished her segment and the show was supposed to cut to a bagpiper but it awkwardly jumped back to her in the studio.
