Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt were talking with one of the BBC Breakfast reporters when the moment happened.
News correspondent Andy Moore was reporting that many local councils across the country will be raising council tax in April, however, those at home could barely concentrate on what he was saying.
Eagle-eyed fans had spotted that there was more to the BBC newsroom background than met the eye.
As background video of the newsroom was played behind Andy, it became clear that it was only a clip of a few seconds on loop.
However, it appeared as though there may have been a flaw in the editing as one man in the bottom left corner kept appearing on screen, before swiftly disappearing and reappearing again, over and over.
Those watching at home spotted the man seemingly vanishing into thin air, and took to Twitter to laugh at the moment.
“@BBCBreakfast loving the man in the left corner of the screen who just keeps disappearing in the report by Andy Moore, I always thought those backgrounds were real time,” one exclaimed.
A second added: “@BBCBreakfast talking to someone in the London newsroom but I couldn’t concentrate on what he was saying. In the background there was a guy in a white shirt at the front left suffering from groundhog day!”
Some fans even posted a clip of the hilarious incident to the social media network.
“And there I was, thinking it was live images behind him. Check out the disappearing/reappearing man in the bottom left corner @BBCBreakfast #notsolive,” one wrote.
While another jested: “BBC new tactics for addressing pay gap…. extermination. Poor chap. #BBC #@BBCNews @BBCBreakfast.”
While it merely provided a laugh for some, it seemed as though it came as shock for those who didn’t realise the images were not in real time.
Just yesterday viewers were in turmoil for another reason, as they were outraged by a controversial change in the show’s format.
Carol Kirkwood excitedly showed off the BBC’s new weather graphics, but not everyone was impressed.
While some were happy with the new hi-tech images and data representations, others believed that certain parts of the UK were being obscured.
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
