BBC Breakfast in chaos as presenter cut off seconds into report – and Jon Kay fumes 'I'm pulling the plug!' | The Sun

BBC Breakfast was in chaos today after a presenter was cut off seconds into a report – and Jon Kay fumed 'I'm pulling the plug!'

Jon was back in the BBC Breakfast studio alongside Nina Warhurst – having been out on location on the previous two days.

Meanwhile Tim Muffett was in Wennington, London reporting on a nearby fire in a residential area.

Nina said: "Our reporter Tim Muffett is in Wennington this morning, where 10 houses have been gutted by fires. Tim, absolutely devastating for the people who lived in those homes."

Tim was then seen stood near a cordon and he said: "Absolutely, yes. We're about a half a mile or so away from the village, much of the area has been cordoned off."

He continued to speak but he was abruptly cut off, with Nina explaining the viewers: "Some problems there with Tim's microphone.

"Apologies for that, we'll try and come back to Tim Muffett in Wennington a little later."

The chaotic morning continued as Jon then threatened to "pull the plug" on parts of the programme.

Reporter Chetan Patha was at Brighton & Hove Community Stadium to report on the latest game in the Euro 2022 women's tournament.

Chetan greeted the hosts by saying: "Morning Nina – if you're wondering what the noise is in the background, we've been talking about the extreme heat so we've got industrial sized fans.

"It's a type of fan we could probably do-" before he was also cut off by a failed microphone.

Jon said: "I'm sorry, after two days of being in extreme heat with no fan, I'm not having that.

"I'm pulling the sound on Chetan and he can suffer. We'll pull the fans as well!"

Nina added: "We're not having the best luck, are we, with the microphones this morning?

"First it was Tim, then it was Chetan, but it is a big match that will take place today. History making already, so we'll look forward to that."
