She was unmasked as the voice behind the Goldfish on The Masked Singer Australia on Sunday evening, and it was that same voice that got her into trouble live on The Project on Monday – twice!

Christine Anu appeared for a chat with Carrie Bickmore over zoom on Monday, after she became the third celebrity booted from the bizarre but beloved singing show on Sunday.

It all went south quickly however, after the singer dropped a major F-bomb during the conversation, with an S-shaped verbal slip up to follow.

The 17-time Aria nominee is rose to fame off the back of her 1995 cover of My Island Home, a song Carrie begged her to rerelease so her new found fandom from the show could enjoy it.

“You say re-release and I’ve a-f**king million verses,” she responded.

Quickly realising her gaffe, she unfortunately just dug herself in deeper.

“Oh sh*t did I swear?” she asked, covering her mouth as The Project studio erupted into laughter.

The interview was cut short, but eagle-eyed fans who spotted the gaffe before the cross was pulled couldn’t have been. more delighted with the iconic Aussie singer’s down to earth appearance.

The songstress herself took to the platform immediately following the moment, with a hilarious, and very cheeky apology to the network and hosts.

“Oh my fkn god what just happened @theprojecttv,” she tweeted. “Sorry, I promise I won’t do it again.”

Tagging Carrie Bickmore, Peter Helliar and Ryan Fitzgerald she’s clearly keeping her fingers crossed for a second go on the current affairs program.

Christine doesn’t need to sweat it however, it’s certainly not the first or worse major swear word to be dropped on the program.

Last year, British television star Trinny Woodall dropped an unexpected C-bomb during a live appearance on The Sunday Project.

Responding to a question about her What Not To Wear co-star Susannah Constantin, the 55-year-old was quick to confirm—but not without adding some of her trademark humour.

In addition to staying tight in traditional ways, Trinny revealed she and her pal like to “call each other rude names”.

“I mean I’ll text her and be like ‘how are you c***?’,” she explained before spelling out the entire expletive.

While the quip was meant in good humour, it left hosts including Lisa Wilkinson and Tommy Little visibly shocked given their show’s family-friendly time slot.
