Despite the moment quickly going viral, Ryan had been silent on the slip, until now.
'It was a B-bomb':  Tubridy claims that he did not drop F-bomb during Toy Show

Ryan addresses F-bomb with Instagram post.

Ryan Tubridy has claimed that he did not drop ‘an F bomb’ during Friday’s Late Late Toy Show but instead used ‘a B bomb’.

One that “probably rhymes with a word like ‘pollocks’".

The host was referring to the moment he shocked the nation during a mini-meal with one of the star children on the show, Abbie.

Tubridy appeared to use the expletive after a large bottle of Fanta exploded all over him.

Speaking on his radio programme this morning, he said:

“The truth of the matter is, people thought it was an F bomb it wasn’t, strangely, it was a B bomb. You have to listen carefully, it probably rhymes with a word like ‘pollocks’ rather than anything else.”

Addressing the moment on Instagram, Ryan wrote: 

Yeah so… eh, about this moment…’ ‘I’m just going to stick with Club Orange in from now on. #shoplocal.

RTÉ made the decision to edit out the moment for the RTÉ Player version of the show, by skipping a few seconds ahead, but that didn't stop his Radio One colleagues leaving a cheeky little gift on his desk this morning.

“A gift from my ‘supportive’ colleagues and ‘friends’ this morning,” Tubs posted to his Instagram Stories, with a video of a 2Litre bottle of Fanta and a printed out photo of his forlorn face staring into the camera.
