BBC Breakfast’s Boris Johnson blunder sparks frenzy: ‘Lockdown’s been tough’

Boris Johnson called ‘Kate Bingham’ in blunder

BBC Breakfast returned with Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt catching up on the latest headlines and news from the UK’s vaccination programme. One segment on the vaccine and how effective the AstraZeneca vaccine is, left BBC viewers amused as they noticed an error with a clip of Boris Johnson sharing his insight into the matter. 

A BBC correspondent said: “In Germany, where the Pfizer vaccine is being used. 

“A national committee has said the AstraZeneca jab should for now not be given to people aged 65 and above insufficient evidence of how effective it is in older people. The government here has firmly rejected that.”

Johnson said: “Our own authorities have made it very clear that they think the Oxford AstraZenaca vaccine is very good. 

“They think it is effective across all age groups and it provides a good immune response across all age groups.”

However, eagle-eyed viewers spotted the name displayed on screen was Kate Bingham, former chair, UK Vaccine Taskforce and not Boris Johnson. 

One shared on Twitter: “It appears Kate is a tad too eager for halloween this morning #bbcbreakfast.”

Another joked: “Kate Bingham’s not looking her best. #bbcbreakfast.”

“Lockdown has been tough on Kate @BBCBreakfast #COVIDVaccination #coronavirus,” a third remarked. 

Someone else commented: Kate looks a lot like Boris Johnson! @BBCBreakfast.”
