Have you ever mistaken a stack of paper for your iPad? We think not. Meet BBC news presenter Simon McCoy.
While mistakes and errors occurring in live transmission are quite common on TV, what happened to Simon isn’t. In a video taken from a recent Live broadcast, Simon apparently wasn’t paying attention and ended up missing the wrong prop – a stack of printing paper. Leaving the viewers slack jawed, BBC News Presenter Simon McCoy carried on reporting while carrying photocopier and printing paper instead of his iPad.
According to the BBC spokesperson' "In the rush of live news, he didn't have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it." Talk about being a professional! Check out the video above to see how Simon delivers his news – with a pack of printing paper and let us know what you think!
