Oopsie! The One Show (which is no stranger to an awkward moment) suffered a bit of a technical fail on Friday (October 15) when those tuning in noticed they were getting one of the BBC One's series' infamously informative segments read out more than once.

The mishap went down as the show took a trip to a salon in Wales to get the general public's views on a number of hot topics.

Only we got them twice.

The segment saw a male voiceover explain what was happening, followed by Angellica Bell's (who was co-hosting the show alongside McFly's Harry Judd) then dubbed over the top. The two read out identical scripts, with Bell's voice around a second behind the original.

The mishap was noticed by a few fans tuning in on Twitter, who couldn't help but point it out.

"That double voiceover has given me headache!! #TheOneShow," one person wrote, while another tweeted, "What's with the distorted audio ?? @BBCTheOneShow #TheOneShow," another asked.

"Why are there two simultaneous voiceovers on this hairdresser section on #theoneshow ?" another person questioned, as another wrote on the social media site: "Two voice overs driving me crackers! #TheOneShow."

And they weren't the only ones getting the news twice:

Angellica and Harry didn't seem to be made aware of the issue at first, but did apologize after a chat with guests Jack Whitehall and Jamie Lang.

Angellica was then forced to apologise once again at the end of the show, after claiming a number of viewers had got in touch about the "sound issues".

"I just wanna say, we've had loads of messages about the sound issues. So, so sorry... we hope it's all sorted," she said, before joking with a laugh, "and we'll be having words!"

You tell 'em Angellica!
