Richard Madeley apologises after swearing live on GMB

Viewers called him out

Good Morning Britain viewers were left stunned when Richard Madeley swore live on air.

The presenter will be filling in for Piers Morgan for the next three weeks alongside Charlotte Hawkins as Piers and Susanna Reid enjoy a break for Easter.

During Monday's show, Richard dropped the 's' word while interviewing The Voice winner Molly Hocking and coach Olly Murs.

He asked Molly at what point she thought: "[Expletive] I won it?"

While Molly, Olly and Charlotte didn't appear to acknowledge Richard's naughty slip of the tongue, viewers definitely did.

They took to Twitter to call out Richard.

One person wrote: "Oh dear Richard, swearing on live telly!! #richardmadeley #gmb."

Another said: "Did Richard Madeley just say [bleep]? #GMB @GMB."

Apparently I may have said the word beginning in S and ending in T. I didn’t realise I’d said it.

A third wrote: "I was genuinely having a [bleep] when I heard the voice of Richard exclaim 'Oh [bleep]' from the living room... thought I'd imagined it... apparently not. #gmb."

Another tweeted: "Did Richard just say '[bleep]' #gmb," while one said: "Naughty Richard. He said '[bleep]' on live TV."

Richard later apologised for swearing and it appeared that he didn't realise he had said it.

He said: "Apparently I may have said the word beginning in S and ending in T. I didn’t realise I’d said it.

"I do apologise."

Richard returned to co-host the show today as Piers and Susanna take a break from presenting duties.

The presenter told co-star Charlotte: "You're stuck with me for three weeks. It's great to be here and lovely to be working with you again Charlotte. But you could have made an effort."
