The perils of live TV: Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon can’t stop laughing after she makes a VERY rude double entendre
Karl Stefanovic may be 46 years old, but he still has the mind of a teenage boy.
The Today host couldn’t stop laughing on Tuesday morning after his co-anchor Allison Langdon admitted she was ‘in a bit of a flap’.
‘In a flap’ is a common idiom meaning to be angry or unhappy, but the word ‘flaps’ is also a slang term for vagina.
Oh, dear: Today host Karl Stefanovic couldn’t stop laughing on Tuesday morning after his co-anchor Allison Langdon admitted she was ‘in a bit of a flap’
‘I’ve got to admit this morning I’m in a bit of a flap. Brookie’s jumped ship!’ Allison said, referring to Today’s entertainment reporter Brooke Boney, who was doing a live cross from SBS headquarters in Sydney.
Karl was clearly amused by the double entendre.
He glanced knowingly at a producer off camera then doubled over on his desk as he burst into fits of uncontrollable laughter.
Realising she’d set Karl off, Allison began giggling herself and scrambled to get the segment back on track.
The 41-year-old tried to make it look like the hosts were just laughing about the fact Brooke was broadcasting from outside a rival TV station.
‘You know, a bit of a flap? Brookie’s not here and I didn’t know why and then I see this shot of her – and what’s going on? She’s at SBS this morning’ Allison said.
Brooke, who had overheard the co-hosts childish giggling, followed Allison’s lead by trying to make it appear as though they weren’t laughing at the ‘flaps’ remark at all.
‘Ally, I’m here for Eurovision. Please don’t start any rumours. We don’t need that sort of heat, sweetheart. Come on,’ she said.
‘I’m just here to vote on the songs. I can’t say anymore because I don’t want us to get disqualified.’
Brooke then moved the segment on by continuing her entertainment news bulletin.
SBS is the Australian broadcaster for the Eurovision Song Content.
Brooke previously worked for SBS and Indigenous channel NITV as a political reporter before joining Nine in early 2019.
