Dame Helen Mirren was forced to apologise after turning the air blue on live TV in the U.K. on Tuesday.


The Oscar-winning actress, Helen Mirren appeared on the BBC Breakfast show, which airs between 6am and 9.15am local time, and let slip a four-letter word as she discussed her admiration for famed English thespian Sir John Gielgud.

She said, "He was always my inspiration for the choices he made, he was this great knight of the British theatre... that always inspired me. He always took such edgy choices, (and he would always say) in that wonderful voice he had, 'You little s**t'."

When the presenters pointed out her slip, Helen Dame Helen Mirren clasped a hand over her mouth and laughed, adding, "Oops, I'm so sorry."

Presenter Bill Turnbull then told viewers, "That never happened. If you heard that, we are very sorry."
