Picture: IMJUSTBRUM. Callum Watkinson

An ITV reporter “lost it” while filming after a passer-by kept interrupting him.

Callum Wilkinson from ITV Central was caught on camera in Birmingham’s Centenary Square.


He threated to “f***ing bang out” the man during a foul-mouthed rant.

ITV has since apologised for the outburst.

A spokesman said:

“ITV has spoken to the reporter and the matter is being dealt with internally.

“We apologise for any offence the comments have caused and will not be commenting further at this time.”

During the 53-second clip Watkinson becomes increasingly agitated by the actions of the man.

He shouts: “I’m not a higher class than you mate, I’m just trying to do a job – have you got a job?”

When the man answers he has Watkinson replies:

“Well go and f***ing do it and I won’t come into your workplace and start ****ing with ya.”

Mr Watkinson, after being told to “stop being rude”, replied:

“If you get behind me again I will ****ing bang you out, do you understand me?”

“Why don’t you go and get a job and then I will come behind you and start behind an idiot?”

“Where do you work? Footlocker or McDonald’s?”

The man replied, “Nothing wrong with that.”

In the final part of the clip, he’s heard asking:

“How about sorry for trying to mess up my work?

“How about that?

“Do you know how hard it is to broadcast live to half a million people?

“Do you know how hard it is to concentrate?

“It’s quite hard without someone in the background going ‘ooooh I want to be on TV’.”
