BBC Breakfast star Steph McGovern branded her co-host as a "k**b" in a savage swipe this week, when an interview took a hilarious turn.

Chatting about job interviews, the 38-year-old Channel 4 presenter was joined by her childhood friend Claire and her producer Geoff on her podcast Not Bad For A Monday.

The weekly podcast, hosted by Steph, aims to tackle "some of the funny, strange and sometimes revolting stuff that happens in the workplace".

This week, the trio tried to act out a fake job interview – but things quickly turned snappy between Geoff and Steph.

When Geoff tried to take the lead in the interview, Steph playfully branded him as a "k**b," leaving him speechless.

Steph, who has hosted the business segments on BBC Breakfast since 2010, asked her friend Claire about her "weaknesses," mimicking a classic job interview question.

Claire responded: "Oh, gosh. That's such a hard question. I've probably got loads.

"It's a really cr***y question because it's one of those where you have to turn it into a positive question."

When Claire suggested it was a "boring" question, she added: "Not that I'm saying you're boring, Steph. Obviously not."

Geoff jumped in and poked fun at Steph, saying: "She's not getting the job, she's not getting the job!"

When the trio got distracted, Geoff tried to get Claire to answer the original question, as she replied: "I'm really not good at technology, honestly I'm really not.

"I've probably got a few weaknesses if we're going to go down that [road] but Geoff, I wouldn't say that in an interview because I want them to think I'm good at those things."

He replied: "So, what would you say? This is an interview situation. You've been asked the question, what's the answer?"

Steph interrupted him, saying: "Geoff, can you just wind your neck in a bit here, love? It's me who is the interviewer! If I want to ask the question, I will."

Geoff replied: "You've gone awol! How long are you giving her?"

In a cheeky swipe, she hit back: "Longer than you because you're being a k**b!"

Thankfully, all three presenters burst into laughter, making it clear the cheeky jibe had been nothing more than a light-hearted joke.
