Sky News reporter swallows fly live on air


Sky News reporter swallows fly live on air

Sky News’s political editor Adam Boulton had a bit of an unfortunate moment on air this afternoon.

Boulton was talking about Britain’s cabinet reshuffle when something seemed to stop him in his tracks mid-sentence.

Sensing things were amiss host Dermot Murnaghan asks Adam if he wants to “take a pause”.

The ultra-professional Boulton however quickly explained the situation to Murnaghan saying “No, I swallowed a fly, that’s alright. I’ve recovered now.”

Fair play to Adam for playing it off so well, but it’s not the first time he has gone viral.

In May 2010 he had a much publicised spat with Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell live on air.

Never change Adam!
