Embarrassing incident took place earlier this week
An England cricketer sang Adele‘s hit ‘Hello’ live on BBC Breakfast earlier this week, completely oblivious that her microphone had been left on.
Female cricketer Kate Cross had appeared in a previous live segment and her microphone remained on when the camera switched to BBC morning presenters Louise Minchin and Charlie Stayt.
“Hello? Can anyone hear me?” Cross is heard asking over the segment, before belting out the lyrics from Adele’s track: “Hello, it’s me”.
Fellow cricketer Heather Knight later explained in a BBC Sport blog: “The BBC Breakfast presenters also came down for a go live on air, which was pretty cool, and Kate Cross somehow found herself with a stray microphone and, thinking it wasn’t on, decided to belt out a rendition of ‘Hello’ by Adele. It turns out the microphone was on and Crossy made her singing debut live on BBC Breakfast primetime. Sorry, viewers!”
Cross herself later jokingly tweeted: “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.”
