By Yukio Strachan     Feb 20, 2012 in Odd News
BBC weather forecaster Alex Deakin didn’t mean to say it. But it happened anyway as he gave his weekly weather forecast over Britain on live TV.
"By and large it is simply a lovely winter's day," began Deakin on Saturday evening's BBC World weather forecast,newslite.tv said.
He went on, smiling, then predicting "buckets loads of c*** " well, you know.
What he said, rhymes with the word hunt.
He intended to say bucket loads of "sunshine over central and eastern England," it just didn't come out that way.
His comment,of course, didn't go unnoticed.
Deakin took to Twitter and tweeted: "I think the less said the better about that last broadcast #P45."
A “P45″ is British slang equivalent of a “pink slip” offense, The Jane Dough noted.

A viewer responded reassuring him saying: 'James Naughtie and Andrew Marr both got away with it. You'll be fine. #youtubesensationbymorning', tweeted, fayeharland.
Fayeharland was right.
As of today, there are 15 uploaded clips of Deakins slip on YouTube alone. Some clips with over 500 views.
And Deakin, he's still predicting the forecast for BBC.
What did Deakin predict the next day?
"It's a lovely day, that is all," he tweeted.
