BBC Breakfast presenter falls into swimming pool during live interview

Pop historian Dave Allen will be giving a talk to Portsdown U3A

It wasn't quite the in-depth interview that the sports presenter Mike Bushell had in mind.

The reporter was preparing to chat to England swimmers Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, Ben Proud and James Guy on Australia's Gold Coast, where the Commonwealth Games are being held.

He appeared to get down to the first step in the pool and inadvertently moved slightly deeper thinking the floor would be level.

As he was interviewing England's Commonwealth Games swimmers he slipped and fell into the water and it's hysterical!

Relax… research shows Friday 13th is not the unluckiest day
Several high-rise buildings do not have a floor numbered 13th or the entire floor is kept vacant. This is believed to have contributed largely in fueling superstitions around Friday the 13th .

Much to his astonishment and the amusement of the athletes, the presenter took a step too far in the water taking a significant dip into the pool, following which, hilarity ensued.

As he got into the shallow water for the interview, he said: 'I'm going to be careful because I've got a sound pack on'.

During the interview, the sound cut out and eventually had to cut back to the BBC studio in Britain.

"Bye Mike. It hasn't been boring".

Minchin added: "If you were going to set that up, you would imagine that might happen, and it did - live on national television".

Thankfully Mike wasn't hurt by his fall, and he managed to laugh it off, leaving some of the swimmers in hysterics.

Moments later they were able to return to Bushell who admitted: "I thought it was just a little jacuzzi or a kids' pool".

"Congratulations", he told the sports stars who are now competing in the Commonwealth Games, before slipping and shouting: "Whoops, I didn't see the step".
