ITV presenter slips up pronouncing Jeremy Hunt’s name during live TV report

An ITV presenter mispronounced Jeremy Hunt's name during a live broadcast on Thursday, 7 March, prompting an urgent correction for her accidental use of a swear word.

Broadcaster Nina Hossain was speaking to a correspondent in Greater Manchester, when she mispronounced the chancellor's surname.

"You spoke to Mr c***"," the presenter said before immediately correcting her mistake.

"Mr Hunt, how did he respond to calls for her to resign?" she said afterward.

It's not the first time a newsreader has slipped up with Mr Hunt's name - BBC presenter Victoria Derbyshire made the same mistake in 2019.
