Claudia-Liza Armah was discussing the new US President’s choice for the Supreme Court when she accidentally said the word “p****”.
Despite the gaffe, the anchor managed to keep it together during the report on Wednesday – much to the bemusement of co-presenter Colin Brazier.
Speaking about Mr Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the experienced news reader mispronounced the work “pick” during a piece to camera.

She said: “Now, President Trump has made one of his biggest appointments since taking office, by announcing his nominee for the US Supreme Court.
“His p**** for the lifelong position in America’s highest court is Neil Gorsuch, a Conservative Colorado judge.”
As she carried on without acknowledging the blooper, Mr Brazier can be seen turning to his fellow anchor and appears to be smirking.

He soon returns to the camera with a more serious expression as Ms Armah professionally continues the broadcast.
It wasn’t long before eagle-eyed viewers took to social media to point out the slip of the tongue.
One wrote: “Trump's “P****” is the new Appointee for the Supreme Court. Colin Brazier's look of amusement is classic!”
