WATCH: Bob Geldof kicked off TV appearance for the word b******s

Bob Geldof was kicked off a TV appearance yesterday for swearing twice.

The former Boomtown Rats frontman was being interviewed live on Sky News when he said "b******s" twice in response to questions about tax-dodging musicians.

When newsreader Jayne Secker brought up the issue of Band Aid's legacy and the hypocrisy of certain celebrities taking part in the single due to their history of tax avoidance, the 63-year-old organiser retorted, "I think you're talking b******s."

The news anchor continued the interview requesting that the star used less "colourful" language, but when asked a second question, he gave the same response which led to his microphone being muted and the interview being terminated.

Following the awkward appearance, Jayne slammed the star for his behaviour and accused him of dodging the question.

Whooppss!

As we all know the singer and political activist recorded the fourth incarnation of the Band Aid single 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' on Saturday which had already raised £1m (€1.25m) in just five minutes.
