‘B***h…it’s no good’: GMB viewers are left in hysterics during Coronation Special as Susanna Reid appears to SWEAR live on air after the camera cuts to Kate Garraway
Good Morning Britain’s Coronation Special descended into chaos on Saturday morning after a presenter appeared to swear live on air.
Hosted by hosts including Ben Shephard, Kate Garraway and Susanna Reid, the ITV show focused on the lead up to the momentous occasion.
Susanna presented a link preparing for Kate at Buckingham Palace, saying: ‘Now many people would say she is and has been one of the most maligned figures in Britain, today she is crowned Queen.
The public mood over Camilla the Queen Consort has certainly softened in recent years, she is of course now regarded as one of the most senior royals. Kate’s at Buckingham Palace.’
But when Kate started talking when the camera interrupted her, viewers heard a voice they thought was Susanna saying, “B***h, it’s no good” before Kate promptly continued her broadcast.

Oops: Susanna presented a link in which she prepared to cut to Kate at Buckingham Palace, but when Kate started to speak, viewers heard a voice saying, ‘B***h, it’s not right’
A debate with amused viewers then erupted on Twitter, as they wondered how the blunder happened and if it was Susanna who said the rude word.
One person wrote, “I can’t rewind TV, but was someone’s mic still on, someone shouting ab***h?”
Another said, “I swear someone just said b***h when it went to Kate’s part,” while a third added, “Susanna and Ben blushed and grinning says it all.” It was their convo when we heard the word “b***h in GMB.”
Someone else wrote, “Did I just hear Susanna say b***h off camera on a live mic?”
While another person responded with laughing emojis as they shared a clip of the moment. and someone else wrote, “Swear someone just said b***h in the background talking about Camilla.”
And another wrote, “I’m obsessed with the fact that it’s not even 8am yet and Susanna called someone off camera. Coronation Day brightens up!’
Meanwhile, journalist Petronella Wyatt claimed it was she who swore and a microphone picked it up.
She said, ‘Oops. Was off the air this morning when a mic picked me up having a private conversation about how a royal family has been unfairly smeared as ab in some circles… apologies if anyone thought it was referring to them. It didn’t!’

Elsewhere in the show, Richard Gaisford, Nick Dixon and Nitya Rajan covered key locations in central London.
Susanna kicked off the program by speaking exclusively with the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska.
She told Susanna that she hoped to personally thank King Charles at the coronation for British support for Ukraine as their war continued.
Olena said, “This is a great honor. We are really honored to be present at such a historic event and it is important to us that Ukraine is one of the countries present.
“This is another huge sign of support from Britain at such a difficult time for us. I sincerely hope that I will have the opportunity to personally thank His Majesty for the invitation and greet him on behalf of the entire Ukrainian people and the President of Ukraine.”
Later, Mel B reflected on meeting Charles, who was then the Prince of Wales, with her bandmates while she was in the Spice Girls, saying, “We were all so excited on the day, we all freaked out a little bit. and we broke protocol. I don’t think I would do that again!’
