As Greg James and co-host Dotty welcomed him to the stage they also addressed the unexpected moment, with Greg saying: ‘Firstly a quick apology if anyone was offended by any of the language there.
He added: ‘It’s one of those live moments, what are you gonna do?’
A BBC spokesperson later added: ‘The relevant lyrics to the track were changed throughout for the performance, but there was one moment he accidentally reverted to the original. Greg apologised to the audience immediately afterwards.
This kind of thing never happened on Top Of The Pops (at least we don’t think it did).

Sounds Like Friday Night continues next Friday on BBC One at 7.30pm.
