BBC News anchor makes hilarious live TV blunder and sends fans in to a frenzy

BBC News presenter, Lukwesa Burak, suffered an awkward TV moment as she unexpectedly appeared on screen earlier than she had hoped.

The news anchor had introduced a segment during a broadcast on Thursday, 4 May, with a video clip, saying: "Around the world and across the UK, this is BBC News," before video played and she couldn't be seen.

But appearing to cut back to the studio prematurely, she could be seen letting out a stretch and exclaiming "OK", under the impression that she wasn't yet on screen.

Suddenly realising she could be seen on national television, a shocked Lukwesa attempted to compose herself as she gave a subtle look down, hid her creeping smile and looked over the notes in front.

Some fans lauded her ability to get composed so quickly, with one writing on Instagram "Absolute professional! Did. Not. Break. Character."

"Well, under the circumstances, I thought you ultimately styled that out wonderfully well actually," wrote another while tagging the presenter.

Lukwesa even tweeted the moment herself, joking that she was 'here to serve' in response to a a fan who said: "You made my morning!"

She's not alone, with live TV often coming with its slip-ups.

Rachel Riley was left with a similar look during the most recent episode of Countdown, where the star, who has been the show’s maths genius for 14 years, was unable to solve the mathematical problem.

The contestants on Wednesday's episode were challenged to use the numbers selected to create the final number of 477, which none of the contestants were able to do.

Where Rachel, 37, would normally impress viewers and reveal how to reach the exact number in no time, on this occasion she was unable to do so and told the show's host, Colin Murray, “You will have to come back to me Colin."

Viewers quickly picked up on Rachel's blunder with fans claiming the sum was “obvious”.

While the BBC has also left fans confused recently with an EastEnders storyline, with the events not seeming to 'add up' for fans.

Recent scenes showed Kheerat – who is played by Jaz Deol – receive a shocking life sentence in prison after falsely confessing to the murder of Ranveer Gulati by handing himself into the police.

But watching at home, many wondered how he could have gotten a life sentence from a confession alone.

One viewer tweeted: "Kheerat getting life when there is no evidence that ties him to it is another example of s*** writing from the soap. Such a good character wasted for nothing."

Another said: "So Kheerat got life sadly but what about Gray [Atkins] and Janine [Butcher]?
