An Australian network honouring singer Olivia Newton-John have made an embarrassing gaffe, and spelled her name wrong on national television.

The star of GREASE was the subject of CHANNEL 9's A TRIBUTE TO HER EXTRAORDINARY LIFE - which referred to her as Olivia Newtown-John.

The mistake even appeared on appeals made on behalf of her cancer charity and in the programme's closing credits.

Channel 9 have apologised for the mistake, blaming human error.
