Sunday Brunch viewers couldn't believe their eyes this morning when a four letter expletive made its way into the subtitles of the show's opening song lyrics.
As the introduction music to began to play, fans using the subtitles service or Teletext got a rude awakening when the lyrics got somewhat lost in translation.
The introduction to the song is meant to be: “The sun comes up. I fill my cup.
“I’m waking up to Sunday Brunch.”
However, in what could have been a real recipe for disaster the subtitles misunderstood the word “cup” and changed it to “c**k”.
“The sun comes up,” the subtitles read. “I feel my c**k. I’m waking up to Sunday Brunch.”
The epic blunder was immediately spotted by eagle-eyed viewers with many taking a screenshot of the mix up and sharing it on social media.

Fortunately fans of the show, which this morning featured guest chef Ravinder Bhogal, saw the funny side with one quipping: “The subtitles to the theme tune mix first thing!
“On a Sunday morning! Even I was shocked! Someone havin a laugh? Fill —> feel and cup —> c..k.” (sic)

It's not the first time the culinary chat show has had its viewers in stitches. Tim Lovejoy left Sunday Brunch fans in hysterics after taking a huge tumble backwards live on air last year.
Co-host Simon Rimmer couldn't contain himself after seeing his friend fall backwards during the hilarious blunder that left Tim with his legs up in the air.
As the duo began introducing the lineup for the show, Tim seemed to have got a bit too excited.
He began jumping up and down before falling into the corner of the set – prompting everyone in the studio and behind the camera to laugh uncontrollably.

However while Simon may have been laughing then, he was left wincing after accidentally slashing his thumb – just moments after poking fun at YouTuber Joe Sugg after he fainted at the sight of blood.
Former Strictly star Joe collapsed while appearing on Celebrity Bake Off last year after slicing his finger.
However Simon, who also appeared on the BBC dancing show, was forced to grab a plaster after grating his thumb while appearing on the Channel 4 programme earlier this year.

Channel 4 was forced to cancel the live shows at the end of March last year due to the pandemic, however bosses came up with ways to keep the on-air show afloat by implementing safety measures.
Sunday Brunch airs on Sunday at 9.30am on Channel 4.
