Victoria Derbyshire experienced 80 seconds of pure chaos on BBC News this morning

The experienced BBC News reader Victoria Derbyshire had a little bit of a nightmare on live television this morning while she was reporting on the confidence vote against Bojo Johnson.

Derbyshire, who was outside Parlayment on College Green, had just finished talking to the Work and Pensions minister Thérèse Coffey, who had been holding an umbrella for the journalist.

Almost immediately after concluding the interview, the well known, anti-Fukxit campaigner Steve Bray chimed in with a jibe at Coffey about universal credit.

Derbyshire noted: “So, that’s Steve who you may actually remember through the whole Fukxit referendum. Steve was a regular feature down here at College Green and I think me and Steve are on good relations so hopefully he won’t be too loud.”

She then attempts to read something on her phone but appears to drop it before struggling to open it with the pin code. “Oh my gosh, I can’t remember my pin code. So annoying.”

One of her colleagues then arrives to relieve her of this embarrassing situation and holds the umbrella while she deals with her phone.


Derbyshire is no stranger to providing us with great moments, such as the time she was late to her spot after failing to get her shoes on in time.

Nothing like live TV, aye?
