We’ve all seen our fair share of mistakes on our favorite talk shows. From verbal slip-ups to mispronounced names to segments that would better qualify for a blooper reel, the internet has seen it all at this point.
But this past weekend, the British morning show This Morning! added quite the mishap to the list when one of the camera crew caught a man’s penis on the live feed, repeatedly.
Josie Gibson was the reporter for the live feed that day, during which she visited a nudist colony to interview them about their community, and its dramatic increase in population size since the start of the pandemic.
In the first half of the feed, Gibson briefly interviewed an older couple, who spoke to the friendly nature of the community.
At the end of this brief interview, Gibson gestured to herself, wearing a swimsuit and said:
“I’ve got my swimming costume on. You never know what you’re going to see later!”
Little did Gibson or the main hosts know how truthful that statement actually was.
Gibson continued her interview throughout the colony, ending in a grass and gravel parking lot. With her were several men behind a small board, as well as a man who was concealed behind an open car door.
At this time, Gibson was also concealed behind the board as well as a large towel.
During this closing segment with the group of men, the man standing behind the car door began to sway back and forth from left foot to right foot. As he leaned out to his left each time, his genitals briefly came into full view of the camera broadcasting live.
Each time he briefly swayed into view, the hosts back in the main studio, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, visibly flinched and cringed.
The reporter, Gibson, appeared to be completely unaware this was happening.
When the camera returned to the hosts in the main studio, they proclaimed:
“Wow! That was close!”
“We were right on the ragged edge there.”

None of us are perfect and we’re all going to make mistakes in the workplace. But for a morning show to have a camera crew slip up like this, let’s just say it may not be viewed as such a family-friendly show anymore.
