BBCs Dan Walker forced to apologise after accidental swipe at Maxine Peake

Dan Walker was mortified when he accidentally described actress Maxine Peake as “horrible” in their live interview on BBC Breakfast.

During Tuesday’s instalment of the popular BBC morning show, the 44-year-old introduced the Anne star as “ruthless” and “horrible” before he reassured viewers he was talking only about her character in her new gritty drama series.
