BBC News host left in stitches over viewers dirty innuendo live on air

BBC News: ‘Strange noises’ heard during report

BBC News presenter Peter Levy was left in fits of laughter after reading out a viewer’s comment which raised a few eyebrows.

The latest East Yorkshire edition of the show took a hilarious turn when Peter asked viewers what their oldest appliances were.

When he read out a viewer called Mal’s comments, he ended up cracking up as he realised his words could have been misinterpreted.

Reading her remarks about her old vacuum cleaner, Peter said: “It still works and it’s handy because it blows as well as sucks.”

The newsreader then erupted into giggles over the matter and struggled to move on to the next segment.

“I don’t know what to say to that,” he admitted, while the show’s weather presenter quipped: “Very dangerous.”

The vacuum cleaner was a wedding present from the viewer’s grandmother in 1971 which was more than a century old.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to comment on the funny moment, with Scott Bryan sharing: “It just gets better and better. The last bit is pure joy. Needed it.” (sic)

Catherine said: “This is what local tv should be about – local stories, established faces on the telly every night and real joy. I’m not sure some of the high-ups get it at the beeb.”

Debs penned: “We love @peter_levy and Paul Hudson, they have great banter. @BBCLookNorth is far better than the one we should watch, but Peter and the team are great reporters/ presenters and always have a nice feature.”

Ryan Hack wrote: “Some don’t like when the news reports on ‘Non-newsworthy things’. I love it as long as it’s done after the more important news as it brings a smile and joy to people when the world seems bleak and sad.”

Tim Grindell added: “Peter Levy is a treasure and must be protected at all costs. Met him once and was exactly who you see on screen.”

David Oliver quipped: “Thank you. This had me laughing along a good’un too. My wife turned to me and asked what I was doing to make the bed vibrate. I was just trying to suppress my laugh as she was sleeping.” (sic)

Another viewer shared a picture of their vintage microwave which was “used most days” despite being made in 1983.

Meanwhile, a viewer named Gaynor had a 30-year-old microwave which was still going strong.
