Sunday Brunch: Tim Lovejoy forced to apologise as Angela Scanlon SWEARS live on air


Sunday Brunch hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer were joined by a host of guests on Channel 4 this morning.

Emma Bunton, Stephen Mulhern, Jacob Anderson, Joe Dempsie and Becky Hill joined Angela as guests on the show. 

Cooking up a storm in the kitchen first was TV presenter Angela Scanlon, who was helping out host Simon.

The red-haired presenter was given a pestle and mortar and asked to grind down some peppercorns, when she swore.

As she was getting on with the cooking task, a few peppercorns jumped out of the mortar causing Angela to say: “Oh, s**t.”

Immediately realising her mistake she covered her mouth with her hand and turned to Tim, who apologised to viewers at home for Angela’s language. 

Not letting the presenter get off too lightly, Tim remarked: “You’re a TV presenter as well, apologise.”

Angela then apologised before her fellow guest Emma, who hadn’t been listening, asked what she was saying sorry for. 

In an attempt to avoid a second swearing incident, Tim jumped in to move the conversation on and back to the food Angela and Simon were preparing. 

But viewers watching at home didn’t seem to be offended by Angela’s swearing at all.

On Twitter user said: “If anyone is offended by the word s**t at anytime of day then they should just f**k off #SundayBrunch.”

Another remarked: “She only said S**T #sundaybrunch.”

A third compared the incident to when actress Sian Clifford best known for playing Claire in the hit BBC comedy-drama Fleabag swore on the show a month ago. 

“@angelascanlon’s “Oh S**t!” was not quite as good as @SiansUniverse’s “F**k!” on #SundayBrunch #SwearingIsBigAndClever,” she added.

Tim had challenged Sian to a tea bag throwing competition after their conversation turned to her interest in the unusual sport.

Both Tim and Sian had three attempts to throw the teabag and get it into a Sunday Brunch mug.

After two failed attempts each it was time for Sian to take her final throw but she missed the cup again and failed to land the teabag inside. 

During the final attempt she swore and said: “F**K,” gasping as she realised what she had said.

Tim was then forced to step in and apologise to viewers on her behalf for those watching who may have taken offence at the bad language. 

Sunday Brunch airs Sunday on Channel 4 at 9.30am.
