A SKY News presenter got more than she bargained for as she swallowed a bug live on air.
Journalist Deborah Haynes, 46, was reporting from the latest NATO summit in Lithuania when the cringe-worthy scenes played out.

Sky veteran Deborah was forced to stop her outdoor broadcast and turn away from the camera, before she could be heard coughing.
She then told a member of the crew: “I ate a fly!”
The reporter wore a smart red coat buttoned to the collar and her hair in a straight style as she turned back to the camera and continued coughing, while giggling throughout.
Later in the day, she took to her Twitter page to poke fun at her reaction as she wrote: “‘I just ate a fly’ – the perils of recording a TV piece at night with bugs swarming around the light.”
The journalist was previously at the centre of another toe-curling moment when her son interrupted a live broadcast.
She was disrupted by the youngster who popped in with a very important question in the toddler world — how many biscuits was he allowed to eat.
But the channel’s viewers were charmed and sympathetic, with Deborah’s son praised for his skilful biscuit negotiation.
Meanwhile Sky News recently revealed a huge shake-up in the scheduling for its daily broadcasting timetable.
