BBC Breakfast suffered a major technical blunder which ruined a weekend weather segment.

The flagship BBC One breakfast show saw weekend hosts Victoria Derbyshire and Roger Johnson take the reigns on Sunday (May 1), but it all went wrong when they tried to get the latest weather updates.

The hosts handed over to BBC weather star Louise Lear, who told viewers all about what conditions they can expect from the May bank holiday weekend.

Louise gave a professional weekend weather forecast, but her segment was cut short by a glaring technical gaffe which saw her vanish from the studio completely.

To make matters worse, host Roger had been talking to Louise when she disappeared to reveal a blank screen, so he wasn't able to finish what he was saying.

Presenters Victoria and Roger were left baffled by the blunder, but Victoria quipped Louise had 'had enough' of her co-star Roger.

Reacting to the gaffe, Roger said "oh, off she went" before joking "someone's pulling the plugs out all over the place" in the studio.

Victoria then teased: "She's had enough of you!", suggesting she must have decided to leave the video link early instead being forced off of the screen by a tech issue.

The hosts burst out laughing before trying their best to move on with the show.

Breakfast suffered another major gaffe this weekend when Naga Munchetty accidentally confused PM Boris Johnson with disgraced tennis star Boris Becker.

She was telling viewers about the news Boris Becker had been jailed on Friday afternoon after hiding £2.5million worth of assets and loans to avoid paying off debts.

The six-time Grand Slam champion was found guilty of four charges under the Insolvency Act and has been jailed for two and a half years.

However, Naga suffered an unfortunate blunder which made it sound like prime minister Boris Johnson had just spent his first night behind bars, instead of the tennis star.

Delivering the latest headlines, Naga said: "Three-times Wimbledon champion Boris Johnson has just spent his first night in prison.

"He was sentenced for two-and-a-half years for hiding assets to avoid paying debts."

He co-host Ben handed over the reigns to to sports presenter Mike Bushell to get more context on the story.

Despite the glaring name gaffe, Naga failed to address the error during the broadcast, but this was presumably an honest mistake.
