Clare Runacres apologises for Radio 2 cock-up

BBC Radio 2 newsreader Clare Runacres has apologised after getting her words ‘mixed up’ during a bulletin.

Instead of saying mix-up, when referring to a story about NHS England, Clare said cock-up before carrying on with a slight hint of laughter in her voice.

After the bulletin, Clare tweeted to say sorry “Sooo sorry to @RealKenBruce listeners on @BBCRadio2 for my little slip in the news!” followed by “not a word I’d ever anticipated using on the radio”.

A recording of the incident was quickly uploaded to the Radiofail website, and we’ve embedded it below.
