"Clear your diaries, get the time booked off because that's what I'm doing."

Veteran BBC news presenter Simon McCoy was live on air yesterday when the news broke that Kensington Palace had confirmed that the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth in April - however, it was how he characteristically delievered the news in a deadpan manner that got everyone talking!

The 56 year old struggled to hide his lack of enthusiasm with the 'Breaking News' and quipped:

"Now bearing in mind they announced that she was pregnant back in September and it was thought she was around two or three months pregnant, I'm not sure how much news this really is, but anyway,

It's April, so clear your diaries, get the time booked off because that's what I'm doing."

Simon even went on to share the news on Twitter, but we sense some sarcasm in that hashtag...
