Ben's Awkward Moment in the BBC studio
In August 2018, Ben's weather graphics failed to load on the background screen. In the back, BBC's other host Simon McCoy tried to improvise him but it was in vain. When Simon asked about his background screen, Ben simply replied;
It’s loading all the information for what I’m supposed to be telling you about in a moment.
Ben concluded his weather forecast presentation saying;
Who needs graphics? The weather story is pretty much dry as we go through the next few days.
Although Simon could be seen getting up on his feet to congratulate Ben on the reflection of the blank screen, Ben was probably embarrassed for the incident.
