BBC News broadcasts word cloud describing Rishi Sunak as a ‘c***’ and a ‘twat’

The corporation was live outside Downing Street on Monday as the former Chancellor was confirmed as the next UK Prime Minister.

A segment of the programme featured a Savanta ComRes poll which asked people to describe the Tory leader in one word.

Among the popular phrases to describe the PM were “rich”, “okay”, “capable” and “liar”.

Other descriptions included “boring”, “posh” and “arrogant”.

But some viewers were surprised when they saw the words “twat” and “c***” spread across their TV screens.

The first expletive had no symbols to obscure the word while the latter had an asterisk only for the second letter.

One Twitter user shared a picture of their TV screen and said: “The BBC have accidentally broadcast the word c*** twice in a week, unbelievable scenes.”

Meanwhile Wayne David said: “I actually cannot believe the BBC News showed this Rishi Sunak word cloud earlier today.”

One user described the clip as “too funny” while another said “yeah I’d say that’s about right”.
