A BBC presenter was left red-faced after introducing the James Bond actor Daniel Craig as Craig David during a live broadcast.

Naga Munchetty was presenting a segment on the Spectre star during BBC Breakfast when she made the mistake, leaving her momentarily undone.

“Kate, does this Bond stay in the modern age, we’ve seen quite a lot of the that in the Craig David," she said before struggling to finish her sentence. "Er, in the, in the films lately."

Twitter predictably span into frenzy of puns relating to Bond and the R&B singer’s most famous song, 7 days.

Munchetty dealt with the accident like a pro, telling Twitter: “It happens sometimes.”

Her error pales in comparison to the mistake made by her colleague Bill Turnbull, who had viewers spluttering into their coffees when he dropped the c-word live on air.
