News anchor goes viral for his deadpan reaction to royal baby news

funny stuff 18/10/2017

A BBC anchor has earned plaudits for his deliberately unenthusiastic delivery of royal baby news.

Princess Kate announced on Tuesday that her and husband Prince William's third child is due to arrive in April, amid huge interest from the British public.

Kensington Palace made a short statement about the young child, who will be fifth in line to the British throne - but when it came through to the BBC studio, McCoy was less than passionate about it.

McCoy read the statement out on air, before launching into a mocking rant about the news value of the story.
