BBC presenters apologise for awkward Nicola Sturgeon London Zoo gorilla mix-up


Two BBC presenters were forced to apologise after introducing Scottish first Minster Nicola Sturgeon while footage of a chomping gorilla played.
Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt stifled laughs as they admitted the clip of the gorilla which escaped from London Zoo last night was shown by mistake.
Ms Munchetty introduced the video by saying: “We’re going to be joined by the Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. We’ll talk to her about her plans for a second referendum on independence.”
But as she spoke, the broadcast cut to Kumbuka, a 29-stone silverback, sat in the grass chomping and screwing his face up.


Attempting to rectify the gaffe, Mr Stayt interjected: “I’m sorry we’ve very clearly run the wrong pictures over that particular sequence.
“My apologies there. The story we will be taking about later, as you’ve probably guessed from the pictures, is about the escaped gorilla at London Zoo.
“We will be speaking to one of the gorilla keepers from the zoo



Some comments from MSN news page with this story...... Smile lol!








Really what an insult, the Gorilla definitely has more intelligence for sure and he's a dearly loved and respected attraction with millions of admirers. Naga and Charlie should send him a box of banana’s as a mark of respect for their insult.





Best thing the BBC has done for years. Almost worth the licence fee





Nigel Roberts
hope the gorilla lodges a formal complaint with the BBC for his handsome image being to used to support jimmy krankie and her self indulgent destruction of Scotland







This is an outrage. Charlie and Naga should be on their knees begging for the gorillas forgiveness.
This has to be debated in parliament with the monkeys.





















Ooops! I think they tranquilised the wrong animal and put it back in its cage. Who's the most dangerous on the loose, Mrs Krankie or the gorilla?








What an insult. I hope the Gorilla was OK about it. Enough to traumatize it for life. At least they have the same hairstyle.

The difference is the gorilla doesn't put his haircuts on expenses.

I had the same thought Hope, the comments are so funny on the MSN page too.  How the presenters managed not to burst into fits of laughter amazes me. Smile

The BBC continues it's manipulation of the minds of those gullible enough to still watch it. Nicola Sturgeon is the Leader of the party that has been overwhelmingly elected by the Scottish electorate, if it wasn't for second preference votes the rest would hardly exist. The BBC see their mission as the subjugation of the people of Scotland and to stand against their political desire for Independence.
When the BBC was sabre rattling for Cameron over Libya they showed you a video of a riot in India and said it was in Benghazi. We know how well that ended. The BBC needs to be shut down.
