Oscar winner Dame Helen Mirren was left red-faced after a foul-mouthed slip of the tongue on BBC Breakfast.

The star was discussing her role in the re-make of Arthur and John Gielgud's part in the original when presenter Sian Williams remarked that he was famous for swearing a lot.

Dame Helen replied: "Well, in that sort of wonderful voice he had... You little s**t."

She immediately realised her mistake and covered her mouth before saying: "I'm so sorry."

It is not the first time the actress has been caught out live on air.

In 2007, she swore on camera during a red carpet interview at the Baftas.

The film, which also stars Russell Brand, has its UK premiere in London tonight.

The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
