Media Ocre Awards: Breakfast's 'wee' mistake on live telly

Alan Morrison and Rowan Bettjeman present the most awkward television moments of the week.
A Breakfast presenter left their microphone on while taking a toilet break during the live broadcast.

It's every presenter's worst nightmare, leaving their mic on while taking a toilet break.

And that's exactly what happened on TV One's Breakfast recently, with Rawdon Christie left talking over the sound of someone urinating during a live broadcast.

Christie didn't openly acknowledge the on-air blunder, but can be seen smirking briefly as he keeps his composure and continues talking.

The incident is just one of several errors that crept into the Breakfast show this week, which appeared to suffer from several technical difficulties and presenter errors.

But it was their 7pm colleagues who made this week's Banter Watch segment, as Toni Street attempted to raise the serious issue of sexism in sport, while her co-host Mike Hosking ignored her completely.
