My worst ever on air slip….

I’m so embarrassed, it’s the first time I’ve ever blushed on the radio. I’ve had a nightmarishly busy day: made a speech, done countless interviews, got asked to write a major article for the Sun in only two hours, been dealing with the weekly email. Excuses over…. on to the tale…

I was on LBC radio (London commercial radio) talking about First Direct’s new account fee, when instead of saying ‘thankfully’ I said ‘fanny-fully’, out of sheer tiredness. I realised what I’d said and attempted to correct it with, “sorry about that, it’s about the worse slip of the tongue I’ve ever done’. Enough said. I want the ground to swallow me up.
