Nine News Lizzie Pearl makes an on-air NSFW slip during coverage of the AFL Grand Final

Nine News host Lizzie Pearl made a very awkward slip on Friday when she mispronounced “Croc” in a segment about the AFL Grand Final.

The broadcaster spoke about clips from Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium, where saltwater crocodile Pinjarra was given two pieces of lamb by keepers representing the Sydney Swans and Geelong in hopes he would snag the meat from the winning team.

But when Lizzie read the statement, she accidentally said the 750kg c**k only had eyes for the Swannies.

Realizing her mistake and laughing, she continued: “That bodes well for Sydney, let’s see if she’s right”.

Seeing the funny side, Lizzie later posted the clip to Instagram, writing, “I guess you call that ac**k up.”

Finals fever has started as footy fans descended on Melbourne’s Yarra River for this year’s big AFL finals parade that made history – but some angry fans have slammed the switch to hold the event on city streets.

The main attraction of Footy’s Biggest Week usually moves through Melbourne’s city center with players on the backs of utes, but this year the Sydney Swans and Geelong Cats swam along the waterway, affectionately known as the ‘reverse river’ for its muddy brown water.

The AFL canceled the event in 2020 and 2021 when the grand final was played interstate due to Covid-19 lockdowns in Melbourne.

While Geelong will take on the Swans, the Stars will also be entertained by Robbie Williams, who will headline a star-studded halftime show.

The British icon will be joined by Australian singer Delta Goodrem, G Flip, Temper Trap, Goanna and footy anthem troubadour Mike Brady.

Robbie confirmed the good news of his forthcoming performance in July.

“I’m so excited to perform for all the fans on the MCG’s sacred turf at the biggest game of the year,” he said in a statement.

“Can’t wait to see you all this last Saturday in September,” added the “Let Me Entertain You” hitmaker.
