When you're in the voice-over booth, make sure your phone is off

The voices announcing the upcoming shows on BBC One aren't often phased.

During this particular programme junction however, the continuity guy gets a little tongue-tied as his phone goes off.

You can only just hear the rumble of his vibrating phone. But it must have loomed loud in the voiceover booth for him to break away from the script.

As alway, there's a lesson to be learnt, he said smugly. Switch off your device when you enter the VOZONE.
