Former BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern, 38, has candidly owned up to an unfortunate error she suffered while recording a new episode of her Not Bad For A Monday podcast. The mum-of-one made the admission in the latest instalment of the podcast, which she hosts with her childhood friend Claire and producer Geoff.

She told listeners: “I feel like, well I don’t feel like, we have to apologise for last week. I’m really sorry everyone.

“Basically, we recorded what is definitely our best episode ever.”

“It was hilarious,” Geoff chimed.

Steph sheepishly continued: “And I stupidly lost all the audio and we didn’t have time to re-record, I’m sorry.”

Geoff then exclaimed: “Steph! I’ve spent the whole week trying to cover up who was the culprit.”

In spite of her co-star’s best efforts to protect her, Steph insisted: “I know, but it’s important in life to fess up isn’t it?

“I’m one of those people who admits my mistakes.”

Trying to reassure The Steph Show star, Claire added: “We’ll let you off.”


Geoff then quipped: “It’s starting to feel like a therapy session rather than a podcast though!”

Continuing down the therapy route, he quizzed Steph: “Steph, how do you feel about your mistake?”

“I feel like a bag of s***e Geoff,” she admitted in response.

Explaining her feelings, the television personality added: “I just don’t like failure.

“It’s important to accept failure in your life, but I just don’t like it.”

Geoff jokingly replied: “Does that have anything to do with your parents and your relationship with them as a young child?”

“This is like therapy, dear me,” Claire told Geoff.

Fortunately for Steph, the rest of the podcast went off without a hitch.

Elsewhere, the presenter told her 403,000 Twitter followers her baby daughter, who she welcomed with her partner last year, was being looked after by her parents over the weekend.

However, Steph was seemingly left stunned after they confessed the family allowed her eight-month-old baby to watch the cult-classic horror movie The Shining with them.

Steph tweeted: “Convo with my parents looking after my baby: She ok? ‘Great.’

“Slept ok? ‘Yep.’ Wake for a feed? ‘No.’ Wow, she slept through from 7pm? ‘Ah no, she woke at 9 until 12,'” the presenter continued.

Steph further quizzed: “Woah! Was she crying that whole time?”, to which her parents replied: “‘No, she was watching The Shining with us. She loved it cos it’s got kids in.’”(sic)
