Good Morning Britain's Chief Correspondent Richard Gaisford had to quickly apologise to viewers after standing in an awkward spot today.

Gaisford was speaking to GMB host Charlotte Hawkins live from Washington DC on Monday (November 9), giving his report in front of a sea of anti-Trump demonstration signs that had been put up outside the White House.

But while Gaisford was sharing an update on the US election results, one particularly sweary message in the background of the shot soon caught the eye of some viewers.

The camera operator soon noticed that Gaisford was standing in front of a sign that said 'F**k Trump' and changed the shot, with Gaisford later apologising to Hawkins and the GMB viewers as a result.

"Apologies if you saw something inappropriate on an earlier broadcast," he told viewers.

But many viewers had already spotted the blunder, and it was enough for several GMB fans to log onto social media and share their amusement.

For obvious reasons, prepare for some strong language below:

Earlier this month, GMB favourite Kate Garraway joined the show from her house with an update on her critically ill husband Derek Draper, who has been hospitalised since March after contracting COVID-19, saying there'd been a "huge breakthrough" after Derek spoke his first word in months.

"The power of hope is huge, but you're constantly trying to think if hope is still real," Kate added.

"I was getting scared because I was thinking how hard must it be for him stuck in there. He's been able to fight out of there."
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV.
