The BBC was speaking to guest Anne Mantel on his lunchtime radio show on when – as he put it – the words “just came out”.

Ms Mantel from Chichester, had called in and the pair were talking about a peacock butterfly that had been hibernating for two months after it had flown into her house.

As he rounded up the call, Mr Vine said: “Thanks for listening – look after that butterfly.”

Ms Mantel replied: “Will do, thank you. Thanks Jeremy.”

But Mr Vine then said: “Bye Anne bye. Love you, bye.”

Appearing to be slightly flustered after she ended the call he quickly added: “Ooh gosh, why did I say love you? I’m so sorry. It was a gaff.”

The presenter then went to the next caller, Jamie Dutton, from Huddersfield, who immediately said: “I think you just made that lady’s day then.”

“It just came out but I mean I guess it’s true. Don’t worry I won’t say I love you at the end of this call,” replied Mr Vine.


The 54-year-old has been married to news presenter Rachel Schofield and the couple have two daughters.

When hosting his Channel 5 show Mr Vine felt anything but love for guest Terry Christian, threatening to show a piece of paper down his throat unless he stopped talking.
While his unintentional declaration of love might have left him a bit red cheeked, it wasn’t in the same league as fellow BBC presenter Victoria Derbyshire’s recent slip of the tongue.

She mistakenly referred to the then foreign secretary as  “Jeremy C***.”

Taking a moment, she then spluttered: “I’m so sorry – Jeremy Hunt.”

The 50-year-old BBC presenter, who was chairing a debate about who should be the next prime minister, told viewers: “I really, really want to apologise.”
