Reporter falls in swimming pool during live interview

  • Mike Bushell’s hilarious incident was broadcasted live during BBC Breakfast today
  • He fell in the pool while trying to interview British Swimming Team

BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell was speaking to members of the British Swimming Team at a pool side when he took the unexpected plunge.

“I’m going to be very careful because I’ve got this sound pack on,” the presenter said as he turned toward British swim team members Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Ben Proud and James Guy.

However, as soon as he took another step, Bushell found himself neck-deep in the water; causing his microphone to fritz out and the swimmers to burst into laugher.

The athletes fell into fits of giggles as Bushell righted himself, and struggled to maintain his composure as he tried to continue the interview.

“I didn’t see the step,” he exclaimed. “Sorry about that. Well, that’s given you all a good laugh… just look before you get in a swimming pool in the future.”

Bushell’s interview was cut short, though, as his microphone and sound pack appeared to have suffered some water damage during his fall.
