The BBC has aired another Eurovision related blunder, just days since the last one.

Reporters are sure to have been busy over the last week, with wall-to-wall coverage of King Charles III’s Coronation being replaced by scenes of the Song Contest.

However, viewers have been quick to spot hilarious on-air mishaps over the last two weeks, beginning with newsreader Lukwesa Burak realising she’s still live on air after relaxing with a stretch, and just hours later, a lighting issue plummeting Look North presenter Dave Edwards into darkness.

Then came an awkward confusion between Finland’s Eurovision entry Kaarija (Jere Pöyhönen) and a superfan.

And now, there’s been a second live blunder relating to the Song Contest.

During reporter Jane Hill’s coverage on Friday, during BBC News at One, she didn’t quite realise the camera had already turned back on her and her mic was on.

The clip had been showing our very own Mae Muller, reacting to something she had seen online when it came to a sudden stop and the report cut to Hill presenting live from Eurovision Village.

Unaware she was on thousands of screens across the country already, she was heard saying: ‘I can do. I’ll ad-lib the trail.’

It appears Hill had been talking about improvising one of the next parts of the segment.

She quickly stopped talking to someone behind the camera when she realised she was on air, and professionally continued with her coverage.

Slightly flustered, she said: ‘Well so noisy here, as you may have gathered.

‘Let’s head, if we possibly can, to the fan-zone behind me,’ she continued cutting to another reporter live from the area.

The awkward blunder sparked chatter online, with one person joking: ‘This is so British!’

‘Jane Hill having a little chat when they went back to her,’ another laughed.
