Sara Cox's BBC radio show was left in chaos as one caller branded Matt Hancock a "c***" live on-air.
Sara presents her Radio 2 show weekdays from 4pm until 7pm, and was busy with her All Requests Friday programme when one caller from Devon came on the airwaves.
And it seems caller Jesse Manaton was worked up about the former Health Secretary's appearance on ITV reality show I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, as he was quick to diss the MP on-air.

Requesting a classic Queen hit, Jesse didn't hesitate to lash out at Hancock.
Kicking off the segment, Jesse explained that it's a "bloody brilliant" afternoon, telling Sara: "It's a beautiful Friday, let's have it. Let's rock."
Sara then quizzed her caller on his weekend plans, with Jesse confirming: "I was going to go out with my kids, but the lads are going to rule this weekend. Sometimes you've got to prioritise the lads and bin the kids off!"
Laughing, Sara forged ahead: "Everyone’s gonna love you for choosing a bit of Queen. What track are we playing and why, please?"
Jesse then replied: "We’re playing Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen because Matt Hancock’s a c***!"
Clearly taken aback by the sudden change in topic, Sara cut the call – and was left red-faced as she apologised to listeners tuning in across the country.
She said: "Okay, so we’ve got to cut him off there. This is live radio, this kind of thing happens.

"I can only apologise if you’ve got children listening in the car. I’m going to play the tune – huge apologies, it is live. And here’s the song."
Over in the jungle, things aren't looking positive for Hancock either; with Ant and Dec challenging him to outlast a Daily Star-esque lettuce, his camp leadership title could nearly be up.
To add insult to injury, Daily Star revealed yesterday that Friday will see the first celebrity eviction announced in a special 90-minute episode, and Matt is top of the bookies' lists to be booted out.
It comes after he was voted in for six Bushtucker Trials consecutively by the public.
