The man formally known as Jeremy Hunt

Radio Four presenter James Naughtie had middle England choking on their Weetabix this morning, after accidentally using the 'c' word during the 8 o'clock news. James was announcing an interview later in the programme with Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, but got a little tangled up with the pronunciation of the last syllable.

The aptly named Naughtie started by saying, 'First up after the news, we're going to be talking to Jeremy Cunt', then proceeding to have a coughing fit. The presenter struggled on, not quite suceeding in supressing mounting hysteria. After the news he said, 'I got into an awful tangle just before the 8am news, courtesy of Dr Spooner. We know from emails that some of you thought it was funny, and others were very offended. I'm very sorry to those of you who thought it wasn't what you wanted to hear over your breakfast. Neither did I.'
