Lorraine star Ross King forced to apologise after announcing star was DEAD in horrific on-air blunder | The Sun

ROSS King was forced to apologise after a horrific on-air blunder during Lorraine's breakfast show.

The Hollywood correspondent was left red-faced after announcing that legendary singer Tony Bennett was DEAD.


It came as the Scots presenter was reporting the latest celebrity gossip, live from Tinseltown.

He said: "The news that we've all been waiting for – Gaga is going to be in the next Joker movie.

"Of course, coming back will be the Joker himself – Joaquin Phoenix.

"It was the first R rated movie to make $1billion worldwide.

"This one is called Folie A Deux – translated that means 'folly of two' and it refers to a mental illness that is shared by two people in close association.

"Also, we hear that this one is going to be a musical as well.

"A teaser has just dropped – here's Gaga, here's the music, here's cheek to cheek and here's – of course – the song that we associate with her and the absolutely brilliant late Tony Bennett."

However it took the 60-year-old a while to correct the hapless slip-up
