Joe Swash’s rude GMB blunder as he gets Sandra Bullock’s name horribly wrong

Presenter Joe Swash was left red-faced on Thursday morning after a rather rude mispronunciation of Sandra Bullock’s name.

The 36-year-old was hosting an entertainment segment on Good Morning Britain when he stumbled over the Oscar winning actress’s surname.

Joe was telling viewers about the Hollywood star’s Netflix film Bird Box when he accidentally referred to her surname as similar to men’s nether regions.

He said: "Basically, it’s not so festive, because it’s about the end of the world starring Sandra Bollock, and basically if you don’t wear the blindfold…"

After laughter erupted from the crew, GMB presenter Charlotte Hawkins interjected: "Is that Sandra Bullock ?" prompting Joe to correct himself.

Some viewers took to Twitter to joke about Joe’s mix-up, with one writing: "Joe Swash shows his presenting skills describing BirdBox. I hope they pay him in nuts. #gmb."

Another tweeted: "Joe swash, old Sandra bollock. Hahaha what a legend."

It’s not the first time Joe’s north London accent has got him in trouble after he was ridiculed for pronouncing Prince Charles’s name wrong.

Giving some history of Dumfries House, he said: "It was built in the 1700s and 10 years ago it got itself a brand new owner… Prince William…

"Wait, not Prince William, Prince Chiles! Sorry Prince Chiles, Prince Chiles!

"And he’s been heavily involved in the community. One project being loneliness and isolation, so throughout the year Prince Chiles puts on a tea party here at the House, and all the old people come down and have a good old knees up."
