Awkward moment newsreader Mark Austin accidentally calls guest 'daddy' live on air in embarrassing blunder | The Sun

SKY newsreader Mark Austin accidentally called a guest "daddy" live on air in a very embarrassing blunder today.

Mark, 64, suffered the awkward mishap while introducing policing commentator Danny Shaw to viewers.

The broadcaster was interviewing his guest about the search for fugitive terror suspect Daniel Khalife, before he was found in the Chiswick area of London this morning.

But he left viewers cringing after the embarrassing moment took place during his show, The News Hour With Mark Austin.

Once the contributor joined him via video link, Mark said, "Good evening daddy, uh Danny. Thank you for being with us."

While those at home were left in hysterics, both men failed to mention the gaffe and acted as if nothing had happened.
