- BBC Breakfast aired a clip of a Glastonbury reveller weilding a black sex toy
- The footage, shown as part of interview with Stormzy, went unnoticed by hosts
- Twitter users soon commented on the mishap, telling BBC to check their clips
BBC Breakfast viewers were left stunned when a clip of a gigantic sex toy being waved around was aired during an interview with rapper Stormzy.
The grime artist appeared on the morning programme to speak about his new music video Blinded By Your Grace Pt. 2 and, during the chat, a clip of him performing at Glastonbury Festival was aired.
As the camera panned over the crowd, it spent a few seconds focusing on a festival reveller waving a black rubber phallus about in the air while sat on the shoulders of a friend.
The clip, which aired at 9.08am, appeared to go unnoticed by the BBC Breakfast hosts and Stormzy, but viewers took to Twitter to share their amusement over the unlikely addition to the early morning broadcast.
