I hate to say it but I burped live on air! It just popped out and was so loud that all the camera men fell about laughing. My producer was giggling in my ear and asking, "Oh my God, you just burped didn’t you?"
I tried to compose myself and addressed the audience by saying, "Do excuse me, I just hiccupped". I couldn’t even bring myself to say the word burp on air.
It’s only happened once in 15 years, and it was a long time ago, but I’m still embarrassed!
Hope that’s put a smile on your face.
