Richard Madeley was forced to apologise once again after swearing live on Good Morning Britain.
The temporary presenter, who is standing in this week for Piers Morgan, dropped a second clanger in a week as he swore in response to his co-star Kate Garraway's gentle teasing about last week's fake tan disaster .
"So, this morning you’re going to stay the same colour all morning?" she asked him.
And Richard shot back, "I bloody hope so" – before sinking his face into his hands and exclaiming, "Oh no! He's sworn again."
His colleagues burst into shocked laughter at Richard's broadcasting fail, with Charlotte Hawkins pointing out: "It's five minutes past six and you're off already."
Entertainment reporter Richard Arnold joked: "All I had to do was open the show with expletives and put fake tan on to get the amount of coverage you got, I'd have started it years ago."
Minutes earlier, Richard had been explaining to his co-stars just how that fake tan fail happened – pinning the blame squarely on wife Judy Finnigan.
"When you get up early, you don't want to disturb your partner, so, I get ready in the kitchen," he said.
"Because I've been told off for having stubble, I had a dry shave in the kitchen, I had about five minutes to spare.
"It was quite itchy. So, I reached into the cupboard and I got what I thought was aftershave balm out, which I haven't used for ages, and squirted on, put it on. I thought it smelt a bit funny."
He went on: "As I was driving in, I thought, 'It smells a bit woody' but I thought it was probably past its sell by date.
"When I got home on Wednesday and saw what I looked like, you should see the towel, it's black. I went to the cupboard and it wasn't aftershave balm, it was Chloe's or Judy's from ages ago fake tan."
"All I can do is apologise," he added.
It came just days after Richard said "s**t" during a live interview with The Voice UK's 2019 winner Molly Hocking and her mentor Olly Murs.
He asked her: "How do you feel? Because obviously when you wake up, the first thing you think about is the cat. You put the kettle on, and then suddenly, reality really kicks in and you remember…
"How do you feel when you think: 'Oh, s**t I won it!?"
Richard was later forced to apologise to viewers for his foul language, adding: "Apparently I may have said the word beginning in S and ending in T. I didn't realise I'd said it. I do apologise."
