Lisa Wilkinson had the entire panel in stitches after a rare slip of the tongue on the Today show this morning. 


Newsreader Sylvia Jeffreys was finishing up a story on her 24-hour Bear Grylls challenge, where she had to eat different bugs and insects, when Wilkinson asked, “So, did you swallow? Did you? Or did you spit it out?”

“I swallowed the worm,” Jeffreys replies, embarrassed.

The awkward question immediately had the co-hosts in fits of laughter, with Karl Stefanovic even getting up from the desk to compose himself.

"I'm impressed that you swallowed," Wilkinson said, adding fuel to the fire.

Trying to contain her giggles, Jeffreys responds: "Lisa, anything else you’d like to say about that story that I worked very hard on for many hours?"
