This Sky News reporter did NOT realise her mic was on!


Sky News reporter Kay Burley made a rookie mistake last night during a live report about the Scottish referendum when she didn’t realise her mic was already on!

As her colleagues were handing over to her, she can be heard saying someone looks like “a bit of a knob” as she had been trying to decide with her crew whether or not the man should be shown on camera!

She obviously didn’t realise her mistake until later as she carried on reporting as if nothing had happened, though she did apologise for her language on Twitter later, saying that the man who looked like "a bit of a knob" was trying to hit her cameraman:

We really enjoy these live TV mishaps, though no one will ever beat our Aengus! “What?!”
