The One Show viewers spot a major gaffe on the show
The One Show incorrectly named a Scottish town today (September 19) during their Storm Helene VT, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed on social media.
Presenting duo Alex Jones and Matt Baker were reporting on the devastation the UK’s latest severe weather has been inflicting, when a video from Scottish town Greenock was mistakenly titled as ‘Greenloch’.
This was backed up by Matt and Alex, who were clearly ill-informed from their scripts.
Digital Spy have contacted the BBC for comment.
Storm Helene has been causing havoc across the UK recently, with The One Show also providing hectic footage from places such as Edinburgh, Dumfries and Belfast. This included traffic jams due to trees on the road and umbrellas violently turning inside out.
Matt then shared that his family’s farm based in Durham had also lost power after trees had crashed to the ground.
Meanwhile, Alex has recently discussed how she thinks the BBC could improve their facilities for new mothers.
Appearing on Loose Women, she said: “Companies all say the right things – we’re there, we’re going to support families, we’re going to make it possible for dads to take paternity leave, for mothers to take extended maternity leave, to feed at work – but actually the truth is the facilities still aren’t there.
“They talk a good game, but even at the BBC there isn’t a crèche, there isn’t a room where you can express, there isn’t a fridge where you can keep your milk. There’s a pregnancy contemplation room.”
The One Show airs Mondays through Fridays on BBC One.
