Good Morning Britain was forced to apologise after Katie Price’s son Harvey was caught swearing in the middle of a live interview.
The 19-year-old, who has Prader-Willi Syndrome, has autism and is partially blind, got a shock in the middle of a chat with Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid when a light reflector fell over onto him.
While he did initially keep it together, he was heard asking the crew member who fixed it: “What the f**k was that?”
The interview then continued without a hitch, with the presenters in the studio seemingly not hearing it.
However, Madeley later made an apology as people complained about what happened online.
"We just have to quickly say there was a little bit of inadvertent swearing earlier,” he told viewers, before going on to defend the team.
"It was completely inadvertent. Obviously if you were affected by it, we apologise… But I think we can live with it."
Susanna then questioned: "Was that you, Richard?"
"No it wasn't me,” laughing Madeley asserted. “Although I have done that."
Despite the f-bomb slip-up,Harvey was widely praised for his appearance on the show,blowing kisses to the presenters in the studio as he spoke with his mum from their home.
“Thank you guys, everyone! You’re absolutely beautiful and gorgeous,” he then said before leaving the screen.
“I love him, let’s just have Harvey on every morning!” Susanna beamed, while Richard called him a “tonic”.
After a brief chat with Harvey, Katie later returned by herself to discuss her upset and frustration at online trolls attacking her disabled son.
Last year, a man shared a video of his pals mocking the teen, with wearing blackface and crossing his eyes as he did so.
After successfully taking the man involved to court, Katie was left angry last week when he was cleared of all charges connected to him.
The defence claimed the man, who can’t be named for legal reasons, was ‘just joking’.
In response, Katie has launched a new “Track A Troll” campaign to get the government to keep a record of those who have used their online platform to bully others.
“If it was on the street, say like the video that went out, if it was on the street, and it was happening to Harvey live, and then a person came along, said to everyone "hey, hey look, come and look at this", it would be reviewed different,” Katie explained.
“Now because it's online, it's treated different when it should be treated the same, and as you can see Harvey is so innocent and he's just such a gorgeous guy, he doesn't deserve it.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
