On Saturday, BBC Breakfast hosts Rachel Burden and John Kay had loving words for their guest Leslie Binns.

A former British serviceman Leslie Binns turned around to save a woman while she was on her track, but he's now attempting to scale the world's highest mountain - AGAIN, he's going back, and he joins us now in the studio ahead of his next mission.

This man says:

I think you have the wrong guest sir.

It wasn't Binns, it was Dr Todd Landman, a professor of political science and pro-vice chancellor of the University of Nottingham.

Landman, an expert on American politics, responded:

I have many heroic stories to tell you, but not involving Everest.

Binns was in fact behind them, on screen, and not in the studio.

The BBC posted this mea culpa clip of the incident a few hours later.

As did the presenters.

However, nothing tops other great BBC guests, such as Bounce.

And of course Guy Goma (which was 2006, 11 darn years ago).

Later Burden posted this to Twitter with the real Leslie Binns.
