Tom Hanks and ABC television have apologised after the actor let slip a swear word during a live appearance on Good Morning America.

The Toy Story star telegraphed his f-bomb during an interview on Friday. Anchor Elizabeth Vargas had asked him to speak in his character's British accent in the movie Cloud Atlas, and Tom said that it was "mostly swear words," but Vargas told him to go ahead anyway.

He began speaking in a mumble but the obscenity was clearly audible. ABC removed it for subsequent feeds of the show in the Midwest and West.

Vargas quickly said, "We are so sorry, Good Morning America."

Tom also apologised - and said he'd probably have a seven-second delay next time he's on the show.
