Today Show’s Embarrassing Blunder As They Cross To The Wrong Guest

Today Show’s Embarrassing Blunder As They Cross To The Wrong Guest

Nine’s Today show has arguably been in the news this year for all the wrong reasons – Lisa Wilkinson and “Jacketgate” to name just a few.

However, the breakfast show was out to leave 2017 on high yesterday after it did a live cross to completely the wrong guest.

Today news reader Lara Vella announced she was crossing to the commander of the NSW Financial Crime Squad only to find a stunned Lynne Bilston who was supposed to be appearing in a subsequent segment on road safety. To be fair to Ms Bilston she handled the stuff-up with unwavering aplomb.

However, it’s certainly not B&T’s favourite ever on-air blunder. That honour belongs to the magnificent Guy Coma who turned-up to the BBC’s London studios for a job interview and inadvertently found himself live on air talking about litigation after being mistaken for another guest. But rather than ‘fess-up, the wonderful Mr Coma battled on like a right trooper, making international headlines along the way.
