The BBC News presenter has previously savaged BBC bosses for making him report on “tabloid gossip” about footballers’ wives, Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy, live on air in a hilarious rebuke.

Mr McCoy agreed with a viewer who questioned why on Earth he was having to report on the story.

The viewer, Alan Hutch, took aim at BBC bosses in a tweet as he said, “it’s not as if we’re short of real news”.

Mr McCoy was reporting outside from Penzance in the wind at the time when he gave his own opinion on what he thinks of discussing gossip news.

Speaking on BBC News, Mr McCoy said: “Alan Hutch has tweeted me, ‘why on Earth are BBC News making Simon McCoy report on gossip? Tabloid gossip courtesy of overpaid footballers, minor celebrities, it’s not as if we’re short of real news just now’.

“Alan, I’m with you.”

The hilarious comment has been shared online as one social media joked: “Simon McCoy outside in the cold on BBC News trying to explain the Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney story is all I need.”

The savage remarks come as the two women have set social media alight following accusations surrounding leaked news stories.

Mr McCoy also admitted he’d almost “got fired” over a similar gaffe in the past.

The segment began well enough, with Nick Miller explaining the weather map behind him and the large blue rain clouds hovering over much of Scotland.
