New Zealand TV host Hilary Barry got the shock of her life on Friday after "some eagle-eyed viewers" sent her photos of a very X-rated subtitle fail that did not match what she actually said on air.

Hilary shared screenshots of the fail on Instagram and Twitter with the photos showing the subtitles accidentally read, "I do love semen," when the host actually said "salmon".

"Subtitle fail. For the record: I LOVE SALMON!!" she wrote, clearly in shock.

On Twitter, one user wrote, "New Zealand vowels strike again."

"This is one of the greatest phonetic interpretations of the NZ accent I've ever seen," another said. 

"Bahaha funniest TV moment this year," someone else wrote.

"Thanks for clarifying," another joked.

It seems Hilary first spotted the mistake on Twitter, replying to a tweet that read, "I feel @Hilary_Barry might need to have a word with the subtitle people. To clarify she loves salmon."

"No!!! Is that for real???" she commented, adding, "Actually I see it is, a number of people have sent it to me. Oh dear!"

"Lol I'll never forget my old Australian boss thinking my Kiwi colleague was asking him if he'd like a 'semen sandwich'," another user commented below.
