Over the weekend a BBC News presenter had an absolute nightmare, live on television.

The confusing incident preceded an important report on the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma making the situation even more awkward.

Luckily for presenter, Tom Donkin the incident happened at 2 am in the morning, so there wouldn't have been too many people watching it in the UK.

Except, this was on BBC World so most of America could have been watching at 9 pm, their time.

Oh the embarrassment.

Unfortunately for him Twitter user Andrew Roberts was awake and captured the moment in all it's glory.

His tweet soon went viral but Andrew was good enough to point out the problem wasn't Tom's fault.

Still, this hasn't stopped people making fun of poor ol' Tom.

Others have been complimenting him though, so it's not the end of the world.

Earlier this year the BBC broadcast two minutes of silence while Huw Edwards waited patiently.
