Sunrise: Edwina Bartholomew suffers VERY awkward slip of the tongue live on-air 

Sunrise host Edwina Bartholomew accidentally suffers a VERY awkward slip of the tongue as she introduces a top doctor live on-air


Sunrise host Edwina Bartholomew suffered an unfortunate slip of the tongue on Wednesday morning.

The 38-year-old was hosting her regular news segment on the Channel Seven breakfast show and introduced a clip of deputy chief medical officer Dr Nick Coatsworth speaking about ‘Freedom Day’ for the unvaccinated.

But while introducing Dr Nick, Edwina briefly fumbled her words – and accidentally said a rude word instead.

‘It’s Freedom Day for the unvaccinated too, now able to mingle with everyone,’ she began.

‘Former deputy chief medical officer Dr Nick… D**k… Dr Nick Coatsworth says it’s the right time to ease restrictions.’

Ever the professional, Edwina didn’t burst into laughter at the brief faux pas – instead seamlessly cutting to a clip of Dr Nick speaking to Sunrise earlier in the day.

‘I think New South Wales are progressing in the right direction, and I’ve got to say – if not now, then when?’ Dr Nick said as he spoke about the state’s rule changes for the unvaccinated on Wednesday.

‘They’re 93 per cent double vaccinated, now is certainly the time.’

Edwina announced she was expecting her second child on Sunrise back in August.

‘And in some developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we are having another baby,’ she said at the time.

She is already mum to daughter Molly, who is almost two, who she shares with her husband of three years Neil Varcoe.

During her announcement, Edwina joked that Molly was totally disinterested in the news.

‘Due in February, and I tried to tell Molly and she was not terribly interested. I showed her the photo when she scrunched up and threw on the floor,’ she said.

Edwina, who also shared a picture of her baby scan, told her Sunrise colleagues she will be keeping mum on the sex of the baby.

‘Yes, we know what it is. I will keep that one a secret for now,’ she said.
