    The presenter, 61, spoke to the politician about a comment that was allegedly made by him. Yvetter Copper claimed that Cleverly privately called the Rwanda plan “bats**t".

    "The point is, look, it's good for parliamentary theatre. The point that I said is, and I repeat it, the Rwanda scheme is already having a deterrent effect. After Cleverly finished his response, Charlie repeated his question as he said: "I am happy to give you the time to answer the question I just asked you, did you say that word?"

    He hit back: "I certainly don't remember saying anything anything like that. But then the point is, this is a really important part of our plan, which is already working."

    Fans raced to social media to share their thoughts on the interview, with many picking up on the fact Charlie swore on live TV. One person wrote: "Charlie Stayt wheeling out the word "bats***" uncensored at 7.42am is wild."

    A second added: "Did Charlie just say "Bat s***?" #BBCBreakfast." Another echoed: "Had to rewind to double-check that Charlie Stayt just said "Bats***" on breakfast TV #BBCBreakfast."
