Listeners to RTÉ's Morning Ireland show were left puzzled yesterday after their 7am news bulletin was interrupted by Welsh singer Shirley Bassey.
As opposed to learning about possible military intervention in Syria, RTÉ Radio One listeners were treated to Ms Bassey singing The Performance of My Life.
Surprised newsreader Brian Jennings then returned to the airwaves and apologised to listeners admitting he had no idea what had happened.
The Morning Ireland production team later tweeted about the clanger saying: "That was one of the most bizarre things that has ever happened on Morning Ireland. Apologies to our listeners." A spokeswoman for RTÉ later explained that it was caused by a "breakthrough from another studio".
