A radio news presenter has accidentally announced the death of David Cameron - instead of David Bowie.

Fiona Winchester was reading the news for Heart FM Radio earlier this morning when she made the embarrassing gaffe.

She starts: " David Cameron has died," before quickly correcting herself and replacing the Prime Minister's name with David Bowie.

And it wasn't long before Twitter picked up on the mistake.

One social media user wrote: "Very smooth from the radio news lady. 'David Cameron died, David Bowie, I mean David Bowie."

Another added: "Lassie on Heart FM just read out the news and said ' David Cameron has died' instead of Bowie."

The Prime Minister has already tweeted about the death of the music legend, writing: "I grew up listening to and watching the pop genius David Bowie.

"He was a master of re-invention, who kept getting it right. A huge loss."

The official news of Bowie's death was posted on his official social media account his morning.

A short statement read: "David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer.

"While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family's privacy during their time of grief."

David's son, film director Duncan Jones, 44, also confirmed the news via Twitter.

Underneath a touching picture of himself as a toddler being carried by his famous father, he wrote: "Very sorry and sad to say it's true. I'll be offline for a while. Love to all."

Mirror Online contacted David's spokesperson for comment and they sadly also confirmed the news.

David's super model wife Iman is yet to comment on the heartbreaking news, however, yesterday she shared a cryptic post reading: "The struggle is real, but so is God."

The couple, who have 15-year-old daughter Alexandria together, have been married since 1992.

Prior to this relationship, the rocker was married from 1970-1980 to Angie Bowie, who is currently living in the Celebrity Big Brother house and has been speaking openly about their time together.
