The singer attempted to cover his faux pas by claiming that he'd said "Fecking" -- a reference to the sitcom 'Father Ted' -- but the damage has already been done.
Discussing the TV show, Evans said to Michael: "You'd love that programme."
George Michael then replied: "Other than the fact that I'd be afraid of coming last on that f------ programme..." It was at this point that Evans was forced to apologise.
It wasn't the singer's first clanger on the show. Earlier on, he was heard using the phrases "rat-arsed" and "pissed off" though these passed off without an on-air apology.
This is the kind of incident that Evans could do without. The DJ is set to take over Terry Wogan's breakfast slot on Radio 2 and news of his appointment has met with a mixed reaction.
Audio of the incident can be heard on the Radio Fail website.
