There was a reporter who swallowed a fly.  Why oh why did he continue live?

Sky News political reporter Adam Boulton was reporting live to camera in London this morning after a UK Government reshuffle when a fly flew into his mouth.

Boulton's face contorted, he went red in  the face, but continued to talk politics.

''Do you want to take a pause, you've been talking non-stop are  you OK?,'' someone from the TV studio asked. ''No, I'm fine. I swallowed a fly that's all right,'' Boulton replied.

The fly swallowing moment was immediately posted to social media.

On Twitter TV host and journalist Piers Morgan asked Boulton ''did it taste good?''

While Twitter user Scott pack suggested it's only a matter of time before someone makes a video of Boulton swallowing a spider then a cat then a dog then a goat then a cow then a horse.

Has anyone made a video of Adam Boulton swallowing a spider then a cat then a dog then a goat then a cow then a horse?
