videoAndré Rieu (72) caused hilarity yesterday by using a swear word during a live broadcast on British TV. The musician called his old piano teacher a ‘bitch’ and although that doesn’t seem so serious, the breakfast program is on This Morning known for not tolerating a single bad word. The presenters were shocked and said sorry to the viewers. The word has been paged on YouTube.

The makers of This Morning talk to guests for ‘at least half an hour’ before the broadcast to make sure they don’t say anything rude, a British star once joked. While that is undoubtedly an exaggeration, the presenters of the English equivalent of coffee time always doing their best to keep the conversations tidy. That didn’t work with Rieu.
Presenter Holly Willoughby asked André about his old piano teacher, who still turned out to be a bit of a red rag to a bull (seen from 3.49 minutes into the video). “I hated her, I hated the castle I taught, I hated the piano,” he laughed. “She was a bitch!”
Willoughby and her colleague Phillip Schofield were shocked, but above all had an immediate laugh. They also quickly apologized to the viewers. ,,Sorry,” said Rieu himself quickly.
This Morning is an institution in England after 33 years on TV and countless TV awards, so the incident did not go unnoticed in British media. Among other The Mirror, The Sun and Subway wrote about the scolding Rieu.
Granny with wheels
The presenters held up well this time, because normally they don’t need much to get the giggles for a long time. YouTube is full of blooper videos, the most famous of which revolves around Italian TV chef Gino D’Acampo.
He had cooked something for the duo in 2010, after which Holly compared it to a completely different dish. An outraged D’Acampo thought the comparison was nonsense and said: “If my grandmother had wheels, she would be a bicycle.”
