Kate Garraway amused Good Morning Britain fans today as she asked Richard Madeley, "what's it like to be a Dick?".
On Wednesday's show, the presenter couldn't resist but make the jibe as Richard said he takes no notice of the rude play on his name.
It came after UKIP leader Richard Braine revealed that people call him "dickbrain".
Richard explained: "Well listen, I'm called Richard which is often shortened to Dick.
"And many of you call me Dick. But at least I'm not called, well I am sometimes called Dick Brain."
Kate then asked: "What is it like to be a Dick? Is it tough in life?"
Richard replied: "Well basically after a lifetime of being a Dick, you adapt to it.
"You know, my own daughter calls me Dickie, which is a softening, and you adapt to it."
'After a lifetime of being a Dick, you adapt to it.'What is it like to be a Dick? Is it tough in life?

He added: "So Mr Braine, I don't know how old you are Mr Braine but really, get over yourself. Really, it's just a joke. Grow up man."
Kate joked: "Think about the gags!"
Viewers were in hysterics over Kate's choice of words and shared their laughter on Twitter.
One person said: "Kate you're a legend," followed by laughing face emojis.
Another wrote: "@GMB @richardm56 and @kategarraway talking about Richards being Dicks and Kate ends the segment by saying 'wonder how many gags they get,' great choice of wording lol."
