Broadcaster Vincent Browne was left red-faced last night when he accidentally dropped the f-bomb on live TV.
During a conversation on Irish Water on his TV3 show, Tonight With Vincent Browne, the 71-year-old presenter momentarily lost the run of himself.
Speaking about Phil Hogan, he said, "And the fella who made the real cock up is given promotion to the European commisssion. It's f***ing ama... sorry, it's amazing."
Clearly embarrassed he went on to add, "I'm sorry, I've been off for a few weeks so..." as the studio erupted into nervous laughter.
Viewers were quick to join in with one tweeting, "@vincentbrowne gotta love it, BEST DAY EVER while another wrote, "I've been off for a few weeks" Best excuse for saying 'fuck' on television *ever* #vinb".
