SCOTTISH politician Angela Constance has made an embarrassing gaffe on live TV after thinking her interview was pre-recorded.

The Scottish Cabinet Secretary stumbled over her words when trying to say 2012, instead saying “twenty-thousand and twelve”.

She then asked for the interview to start again, only to be told by Sunday Politics Scotland interview Gordon Brewer that it was, in fact, a live broadcast.

The clip quickly started doing the rounds on social media.
