Just two days after a BBC Breakfast presenter accidentally dropped the c-word live on air, This Morning viewers were faced with Eamonn Holmes apparently flicking the V-sign at a cameraman during a live broadcast.

The presenter was left red faced when his gesture was accidentally captured during a segment about infidelity and quickly caught the attention of Twitter users.

Explaining the mistake, Holmes said it was a symbol used to ask producers to switch cameras and blamed the accident on the way the interview was filmed.

He also made the gesture repeatedly to demonstrate his point.

"Twitter is in a frenzy over the interview we just did," he said. "Apparently because of the way the interview was shot you picked up on a bit of studio language going on.

"People are mistaking - not understanding - technical jargon and me doing this, this mean camera two - this means two on a two.

"Just to put you out of your misery in case you thought there was something more Harvey Smith inclined."

The slip-up also comes after Susanna Reid was spotted delicately edging a plate of food out of sight with her foot on Good Morning Britain.
