GB news has been pranked again after launching less than a week ago.
Comedian Adam Pacitti subtly showed his bum during a video call with Laurence Fox on Dan Wootton’s show.
The comedian was seemingly just asking a question about people being offended by jokes.
But Fox, who is an actor turned failed London mayor candidate, was completely unaware he was being mooned – as was Wootton, former editor at The Sun.
Speaking to the camera, Pacitti moved slightly to show more of his background – a mirror in which his posterior could be seen.

Meanwhile, he said: “Hello. I am a great fan of your work and also a great fan of comedy. I am a man that loves to laugh.
“I am of the belief that either one can joke about everything or nothing at all because somebody will always be offended by a joke.”
He then asked: “What are your thoughts on that?”
Fox then went on a rant on the topic, without picking up on the views.
Pacitti later wrote on Twitter that the appearance was “a solid night’s work”.
Fox himself tweeted his interview with GB News – but as the saying goes, ‘silence speaks louder than words’ as he chose not to tweet the comedian’s intervention.
Other Twitter users were vocal about the prank.
One said: “And he was sharing the segment with Laurence Fox and Dan Wootton, so that makes three bums
“Seems a bit much before the watershed”
Another user added: “The shit this channel is getting is absolutely fantastic.”

“Finally some honesty about the arseholes that appear on GB News,” one person said.
And another added: “Amazing. GB News is the gift that keeps on giving”.
More GB News pranks
The latest prank comes after former BBC presenter Simon McCoy, now at GB news, has lashed out at jokers who have been calling into the new TV channel’s shows to get presenters to pronounce hilarious names.
McCoy said: “I’m just going to say something because if you’ve seen the papers, if you’ve seen Twitter, some people think it’s really funny to send in texts and messages on the basis that if we read them out we’ve been had.
“And you’re still doing it, and I’m watching them, and it doesn’t help anybody.”
He added: “So, to the person that’s just messaged in… grow up!
“We’re a new company, we’re a new broadcaster, there are systems that we’re putting in place that would stop idiots like you getting through. They’re getting through at the minute but… please? We’ve got other things to worry about.”
