CBeebies presenter Chris Jarvis has been accused of mis-pronouncing the word 'kite' during a kids' song, resulting in some very awkward tweets...
In probably the most unfortunate case of misheard lyrics ever, parents everywhere have been debating whether Cbeebies’ presenter Chris Jarvis just dropped the C-bomb.
Whilst enjoying a cheery sing-song about kites, yesterday morning the 46-year-old presenter of popular kids program ‘Show Me Show Me’, was seen scooting around a park with his co-host Pui Fan Lee.
But as he started to sing: ‘Kite tails, fluttering and dancing in the wind,’ one mother of two was convinced she heard something a little less innocent come out of Chris’ mouth.
The song continued: “Imagine, imagine, imagine you’re a fluttering…” Now this is where everyone was left wondering, did he say kite or did he just say c***?
Lyndsey Mann, 25, who brought the clip to the nation’s attention, said she was so shocked that she rewinded the program multiple times to work out if he really just dropped the C word.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: “I wasn’t really taking any notice of what was on the telly, which was on while I was tidying up, but then I just heard that word, so I rewound the show because I couldn’t believe it.”
“And then every time I replayed it, I just couldn’t hear anything but that word.”
After sharing the video on Facebook with the caption “You what CBeebies?!?” it now has more than 2.9 million views and was shared over 60,000 times.
Even former Blue Peter presenter Katy Hill joined the kite debate, saying: “I know @realchrisjarvis sails close to the wind (!) but he totally said KITE!”
Despite all the confusion, the official CBeebies Facebook page responded to the claims that Chris used some rather fruity language in front of their kids and said: “It’s kite everyone, kite! We make shows for your little ones so it’s always going to be kite.”
Poor Chris, we’re sure he’s going to be paying extremely close attention to his pronunciation when singing in the future.
