Broadcasting live from Syria, almost 6,000 miles from MSNBC’s New York HQ, the journalist who was preparing to do a piece to camera was unaware he was already live on air when he carried out his unorthodox beauty regime.

Bradley, who was reporting on the collapse of the caliphate in the region, spat into his hands twice and then ran his hands through his hair to perfect his dirty blond quiff, as anchors in the NY studio watched on sheepishly.

‘This just in, three U.S. military officials are in direct contradiction that the Islamic state territory in Syria has been 100% eliminated. 

‘They say the fighting is still going. Matt Bradley is in eastern Syria where the last remnants where the so called caliphate were, what’s the situation for you,’ Velshi said.

The cameras then cut to an unsuspecting Bradley who was caught in the middle of his last-minute grooming session.  

Despite the slightly embarrassing slip-up, Bradley has earned acclaim for his journalism – having filed from some of the most dangerous regions around the world.

His report comes just days after US-backed forces were celebrating ‘victory’ after they captured a key ISIS encampment and reduced the terror group’s ‘caliphate’ to a few hundred square yards of bombed-out scrapyard in Syria.

Officials from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were seen singing and dancing and giving ‘V for victory’ signs as they returned from the frontline in Baghouz in the country’s east.

The extremists had retreated in to a tiny parcel of land with some reportedly having used their own children as human shields.

The taking of the ISIS camp was a major advance but not the final defeat of the group in Baghouz, the last village held by the extremists where they have been holding out for weeks under siege, according to Bali. Still, fighters from the force were starting to celebrate anyway.

‘I’m happy it’s over. Now I know my people are safe,’ said a fighter who identified himself as Walid Raqqawi who fought in the camp Monday night. 

He said he is returning to his hometown of Raqqa to rest. Comrades from his unit sang and danced in celebration at an outpost in Baghouz, all saying they were looking forward to going home.

Hardened militant fighters holed up in the encampment have been mounting a last-stand defence of the enclave, all that is left of ISIS’s self-proclaimed ‘caliphate’ that once spanned a third of both Syria and Iraq.
