BBC One Voiceover Man's Phone Goes Off On Air, Cue Awkwardly British Apology


On any other evening, a BBC voiceover man referring to Paul Hollywood’s ‘big thing’ would be a cause for a fit of giggles by itself - but last night something truly wonderful happened...

While delivering his cheeky spiel about why viewers should have eyes glues to The Great British Bake Off, the Beeb’s chief voiceover guy suffered the indignity of having his phone go off mid-sentence.

Anything but unflappable, his attempts to cover the gaffe included coughing, pausing abruptly and that good old British tactic apologising. Still, at least now we know that they're not all pre-recorded. 

First posted on Reddit, you can watch the brilliance below.

We’d love to know who was calling. Perhaps it was Paul Hollywood to ask him to stop it with the smutty remarks.
