Sky Television has apologised for airing footage of a Crowd Goes Wild presenter swearing.

During an advertisement break on a repeat broadcast last night, the show cut back to presenters Andrew Mulligan and Mark Richardson, with Mulligan telling his co-host to "f... off".

The show then cut to more ads before the same clip of Mulligan swearing was aired again.

The footage was apparently shot during a rehearsal for the show and was aired through human error, Sky said.

"This error was out of the control of The Crowd Goes Wild team."

Sky said it would review how the mistake occurred so that it could be prevented in future.

Shortly after the incident, The Crowd Goes Wild Facebook page posted a lighthearted message apparently on behalf of the show's producer, Ric Salizzo.

"This is the Boss of CGW. My name is Ric. I would like to see both Mark and Andrew in my office tomorrow," it said.

Comments on the post generally supported Mulligan and Richardson, blaming the error on the behind-the-scenes staff.

Others dismissed the slip as a publicity stunt aimed at upping ratings.

"Chur boys promotion time. Can't see any other reason. If you are getting complaints then those complaining should simply watch Shortland Street," Troy James wrote.
