BBC Breakfast presenter Bill Turnbull has made an embarrassing slip-up on live TV.

He appears to have said "c***" instead of "client" while referring to reaction to a public health story.

He quickly regained his composure and carried on with the rest of the broadcast.

Turnbull is not the only star to have accidentally used the c-word live on air.

Radio Four's Today programme anchor Jim Naughtie and the television presenter Andrew Marr both accidentally replaced the first letter of Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt's surname with the letter "c".

In a statement, the BBC said: "Bill unintentionally stumbled over his words and we apologise if any offence was caused."
