For once it’s not Aengus MacGrianna - TV3 newsreader Siobhan Bastible chokes live on air

AENGUS MacGrianna can breathe a sigh of relief – as the latest on-air blooper happened over on rival TV3’s midday news bulletin.

Siobhan Bastible was due to give the news bulletin during TV3’s ‘Midday’ chat show when the unfortunate on-air blooper occurred.

When host Elaine Crowley handed over to Siobhan for the news, it was immediately clear all was not right.

The newsreader stared at the camera, before beginning to cough violently.

Ever the professional, she attempted to continue with the bulletin – however only got a few words out before she began coughing again.

The newsreader’s face became noticeable redder, before producers switched back to a surprised host Elaine, who paused briefly before saying: “We’ll wait for Siobhan there to get her breath and have a drink of water”.
