A BBC presenter was forced to apologise after a live blunder on Saturday afternoon.
Introducing the next segment on BBC One at 5.20pm, broadcaster Jane Hill began: ‘Now it’s the final weekend of the Rugby Union Six Nations, and Ireland have just kicked off against England.
‘Ireland are hoping to secure the title, but France’s win against Wales earlier kept alive their hopes of remaining champions.
‘Ben Croucher has been watching.’
The clip then cut to a picture of what appeared to be a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally, which saw hundreds of people in a crowded room amongst American flags.
After a few seconds, the clip returned to Hill, who said: ‘Goodness, I am so sorry.
‘That is absolutely not the sort of story, we don’t want to be bringing you on a very big sporting weekend as it is.
‘I do apologise, I hope we’ll have more on the Six Nations later on.’
Viewers were pretty baffled over what happened, with one writing: ‘Did I imagine it or did the BBC flash up a ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan during the news’.
