GMB suffers from awkward blunder as Richard Madeley’s off-air moment is heard – –


GOOD Morning Britain had a rough start to the week with a clumsy blunder at the start of the show.
Richard Madeley’s off-air signal was heard as a booming voice from the gallery interrupted Laura Tobin presenting the weather forecast.

The man’s voice said, “Hello Richard, I’m just going to wave you like that…”

And when Richard joined his co-host Susanna Reid to host the breakfast show, it emerged that the presenters and raucous guests all had frogs down their throats.

Viewers complained of on-air “coughing fits” – as they continued to clear their throats and cough on-air.

One of them exclaimed: “Someone bring them a drink!” Or a cough candy! So much cough.

Richard is back in the hot seat of Good Morning Britain for a second week after saying he’s ready to be the new Piers Morgan.

The TV mainstay has been an alternate presenter of the ITV show since 2017 and is the favorite of bookies to take over on a permanent basis.

He told The Sun earlier this month: “Hello Great Britain, this is a good show to do. It’s fine with me and, yeah, I think it’s fine with me.

We revealed last month how Richard became the frontrunner for the role of Plum, with bosses looking to extend the deal if it turns out to be a success.

He said: “I have no idea. I had no approach at any formal or informal level.

“The phone did not ring, I did not receive a ping to my inbox.

“The bookies put me first and there have been opinion polls where I have done pretty well, but there is a huge difference between that and that is a reality.

“I’m going in, I’m going to complete, I’m going to enjoy it and I hope they ask me to come back. But as to replacing Piers, that’s a completely open question.
