Sky News Presenter Blatantly Drops Huge C-Bomb When Talking About Jeremy Hunt
| Last updated
A Sky News presenter accidentally named former health secretary Jeremy Hunt as 'Jeremy C***' live on-air.
Most remarkably, after making the blunder, journalist Sophy Ridge continued to present the news, without correcting or noticing her mistake.
Warning: As you might expect, the video contains some strong language

Well, as shown in the clip, the broadcaster started to talk about Boris Johnson's no confidence vote.
Reading out a quote by Hereford MP Jesse Norman, Ridge said: "Wilson presided over a culture of casual law breaking at 10 Downing Street, when going on to say, 'to describe yourself as vindicated by the report is grotesque'.
"Two figures who are significant, Jeremy C***, because he is a potential leadership candidate. Jesse Norman, because, you know, he's worked with Boris Johnson for quite a long time.
"And yet that was an eviscerating letter that he published explaining why he's not gonna be voting in favour of his leadership."
The viral vid appeared on Twitter after it was posted by TV critic Scott Bryan.
He wrote: "Oh GOD Sky News just said 'Jeremy C**t' and the presenter didn’t even notice."
As you'd think, many were utterly amused the blunder, with one writing: "Presenters must think, 'I must get this right. I mustn't make a mistake' and then they end up inadvetently saying it! Oh dear!"
Another replied: "Exactly this! It reminded me of the bit in Bridget Jones - just with a different outcome."
A third quipped: "It's Hunt... It's Hunt... Don't say C... Opppsy."
While a fourth joked: "She meant it. No blink, just power through like it never happened and people will think nothing of it.....well she hopes."
As some were pointing out in the replies, this isn't the first time someone has mispronounced Jeremy's name.
As reported by Metro, back in In 2019, presenter Victoria Derbyshire said live on-air: "You say the man you are backing, Jeremy C**t… I’m so sorry, Jeremy Hunt."
She then apologised: "I’ve never said that before in my life. It’s normally men who say that so I really, really want to apologise."
Also in 2019, Nicky Campbell, also made the crucial mispronunciation on BBC 5 Live during coverage of Donald Trump's UK state visit.
Hunt has addressed the regular slip-ups in the past, once saying: "Anyone who knows what my last name rhymes with will know I’ve been called a whole lot worse on the Today programme…"
