A clip of a BBC news reporter who valiantly tries to remain calm and composed after a too-long on-air blooper has gone viral on the internet.

Tom Donkin was presenting the 2am bulletin, when there appeared to be a mix up with the camera.

He can be seen running off screens, where he remains out of sight for a lengthy 12 seconds.

Eventually he returns on screen, only to take the position in front of the wrong camera…

He gets there in the end, ready to deliver his report on Hurricane Irma.

Ah, the dangers of live TV!
