Live TV is a tough gig - there is absolutely no doubt about it.
It’s extremely difficult to get everything right.
Between the information you’re on camera to provide, to reacting to what is going on around you, all the while having thousands of people watching, it’s a tough ask.
It means you have to have a thick skin and a good sense of humour - luckily for Channel 9’s Jess Millward, she has both.
Having been sent to the hotel where the Queensland team were staying to cover the fallout from a thrilling State of Origin decider, Millward spotted who she thought was Maroons coach Kevin Walters heading to the team bus.
Unfortunately, Kevin’s brother Steve is a bit of a dead ringer for his younger sibling - an easy mistake for make.
Luckily, Millward was absolutely unflappable after her mistake.
In a great moment later on, Millward was able to poke fun at herself, describing the moment as ‘awkward’ on Twitter.
Her sense of humour won her plenty of other fans on social media as well, with plenty pointing out she won’t be the last person to mistake Steve for Kevin.
You handled it well Jess. I can tell you, I’ve known Steve for a long time and he gets mistaken for Kevin regularly!— Peter Psaltis (@peterp79) July 11, 2019
Where's the fun in live TV if everything goes to script? Handled like a pro— Ned Balme (@NedBalmeLives) July 10, 2019

Well handled ... that correction on the run. Good to see the Maroon colour staying strong though— gjm (@gjm1508) July 11, 2019
Your not the first to do it and won’t be the last Jess.— Jon buchanan (@JbuchananJon) July 11, 2019
Horror fallout from sickening State of Origin moment
Queensland star Michael Morgan may spend an extended time on the sidelines after copping a second sickening concussion in 13 days in NSW's 26-20 State of Origin series-clinching win.
Morgan's North Queensland club said on Thursday the playmaker would be rested for Sunday's NRL clash with Sydney and would be monitored in the coming weeks.
"He's out this weekend and club medical staff will assess him in the coming days," an official said.
Morgan was left convulsing on the ground after copping a stray elbow from teammate Josh McGuire in a second half tackle in Wednesday's thrilling series decider in Sydney.
It came after Morgan was nursed throughout Queensland's game three preparation after copping a hit from Tariq Sims on June 28 that earned the St George Illawarra enforcer a one-week ban, ruling him out of the NSW side for Origin III.
