There was a reporter who swallowed a fly. We doubt he'll die.

Sky News political reporter Adam Boulton was reporting live to camera in London yesterday after a UK Government reshuffle when a fly flew into his mouth.

Boulton's face contorted, he went red in the face, but continued to talk politics.

"Do you want to take a pause, you've been talking non-stop are you OK?," someone from the TV studio asked.

"No, I'm fine. I swallowed a fly that's all right," Boulton replied.

The fly swallowing moment was immediately posted to social media. On twitter TV host and journalist Piers Morgan asked Boulton "did it taste good?"

Twitter user Scott pack suggested it's only a matter of time before someone makes a video of Boulton swallowing a spider then a cat then a dog then a goat then a cow then a horse.
