A lot of impromptu moments can happen on live television and with many hosts working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen some funny incidences that mostly involve children.

But what happened to Ukrainian news anchor, Marichka Padalko, is a live TV moment that many would be embarrassed by. While presenting the news in studio, Padolko's tooth fell out. But like 'a boss' she continued her work and did not miss a beat.

"Yes, I really lost a part of my front tooth today during the live broadcast of TSN at 9:00... Honestly, I thought the incident would go unnoticed. This episode was deliberately not posted on the TSN YouTube channel. But we underestimated the attention of our viewers," Padolka wrote on her Instagram account.

Explaining why her tooth fell out, she wrote, "I had a heavy metal alarm clock in my bedroom and one time my little daughter grabbed it and started swinging it around while I was sleeping. It hit half of my tooth when I was yawning in the bed." She added that this happened ten years ago.
