Ryan Tubridy has poked fun at his swear blunder on Friday's Late Late Toy Show extravaganza and admits while he did drop an expletive live on air, it wasn't the F-bomb that slipped out of his mouth.

During the highly-anticipated show, Tubridy was heard cursing after he accidentally spilled some Fanta as it fizzed up.

Speaking on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 on Monday, the 47-year-old host explained how "people thought it was an F-bomb" before revealing "it was a B-bomb."

"I opened the bottle and it went everywhere. I still don't know if the bottle was shaken by somebody shaking it up behind the scenes, or if it was just one of those bottles.

"And apparently somebody very naughty may or may not have said a certain word," he said.

Tubridy added: "And I've been laughing about it all weekend because my phone melted with all sorts of nice things from people, thank you by the way for your nice comments.

"The truth of the matter was, people thought it was an F-bomb it wasn't, strangely, it was a B-bomb."

"You have to listen very carefully, it probably rhymes closer to a word like pollocks rather than anything else.

"That's the word which has been misinterpreted, which is fair enough I don't mind I'm not an angel, but listen closely and you will hear a slip of the tongue."

The Late Late Toy Show threw its arms around the world like never before on Friday night, raising over €6.2m for children's charities in between all the fun and heartwarming moments.
