Victoria said at the time that she was particularly embarrassed because it was usually the men who made the mistake.
Addressing Conservative MP Steve Brin, he said: ‘You say the man you support, Jeremy C *** … I’m sorry, Jeremy Hunt.
‘I’ve never said that in my life. That’s what men usually say so I really, really want to apologize. ‘
Sorry! Victoria tweeted after the incident and insisted she was not saying ‘men usually speak the word’.
The BBC’s subtitle service managed to avoid further embarrassment by replacing the word ‘explosive’.
Victoria later tweeted: ‘Apologies again and I mean it’s mostly men on the air, male broadcasters who have ended up misrepresenting her name.
‘Men don’t usually move around saying the word! It’s just what I had in mind – appreciate it didn’t come out like that. Sorry again! ‘.

The EastEnders Star, 56, and the Paralympian, 26, were selected to face a public trial, which caused them to face all sorts of water critics in underground sewers.
Holly, wearing a tight hat and goggles, said for the task in a teaser clip: ‘Right go go go. I adapted it when she passed Shane a section of the chain.
When passing through the gutter the soap star was almost removed and the putrid was destroyed by the water.

Dec said: ‘We couldn’t say anything to help. That’s what it is. Get water, pour water into storage point. Just, just. ‘I’ve said this before, I’ve read it by card.’
However, despite their efforts, the pair received only two stars – meaning four meals for the 12 celebs in the camp.
“We’ve set an example, this is the first time we’ve thrown a ball,” Shen said.
