You really have to feel sorry for radio presenters sometimes when they're dealing with callers live on the air. With no buffer, anything can be broadcast live across the nation.
One specifically awkward moment happened on Friday afternoon during Sara Cox on the BBC 2's All Request Friday.
A caller named Jesse dialled into the show to request 'Don't Stop Me Now' by Queen. However, when asked why he chose the specific bop, his answer was a bit unexpected. "Because Matt Hancock is a c**t," the caller managed to say, before quickly getting cut off.
Cox, to her credit, handled the situation like a pro and immediately apologised. "OK, so we've got to cut him off there," said the presenter. "This is live radio, this kind of thing happens. I can only apologise if you've got children listening in the car." Honestly, Sara, you've got nothing to apologise for.

However the best part was that Cox decided to just let the song play anyway. Why let a banger go to waste?
Hancock, the former UK Health Secretary, is currently residing in the Australian jungle on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! His role as a contestant on the ITV show been a huge source of controversy, seeing as he's still a sitting member of parliament.
Ofcom, the UK's communication regulator, has received more than 10o0 complaints about Hancock since he entered the jungle.
Resigning from his post for breaking Covid regulations last year after he was shown embracing and kissing an aide, Hancock has since added being covered in bugs, getting buried alive and eating camel penis to his CV.
While audiences are seemingly loving seeing Hancock do nasty tasks on TV, the 44-year-old is currently at risk of being kicked off the show as the voting begins.
