Stanley Johnson has fans in hysterics with 'hilarious' selfie blunder

It's not hard

Stanley Johnson has rounded off an appearance on Good Morning Britain with a truly epic selfie blunder.

During today's episode (June 12), the I'm A Celebrity favourite was involved in an intense debate about the BBC's decision to scrap free TV licences for the over-75s.

Stanley might be a confident public speaker and successful author, but his selfie skills leave something to be desired.

GMB co-host Piers Morgan posted a selfie on his Instagram that Stanley had apparently taken and his followers were in stitches, as the former politician had accidentally left himself completely out of frame.

Hysterical fans rushed to comment on the clumsy snap, with one writing: "This is AMAZING lol."

Another commented, with a laughing-crying emoji: "Hilarious!"

Someone else said: "So funny!"

A fourth wrote: "Don't you just love Stanley. Why can't we have him as Prime Minister?"

This is AMAZING lol.

"Lol that's class," laughed a fifth.

Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo, who grew close to Stanley in the 2017 series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, simply commented: "Love him."

During the debate on this morning's GMB, Piers slammed the BBC's decision to start means-testing its once-free TV licences for people over 75.

He branded the broadcaster's decision not to send a spokesperson on the show "cowardly", but Stanley took issue with his use of the word.

Piers ranted: "Their salaries are paid by us, I find it cowardly that they're not here."

When he asked Stanley for his view, the former politician calmly replied: "I don't think you should use words like cowardly like this."

But Piers clapped back: "It is cowardly! They don't send a single person to come on when they've made a decision that impacts on 3.7 million pensioners! I'm sorry Stanley, it is cowardly. And that's why they're not here!"

The controversial presenter has previously vowed to pay the fee for D-Day veterans, following the the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings last week.

Elsewhere on the show, Piers appeared to offer a hint that he'll be leaving the programme at some point in the near future.

The 54-year-old, who has anchored GMB for four years, was discussing his future on the breakfast show with co-host Susanna Reid and reflecting on how long they had worked together.

Susanna asked him: "November is our four-year anniversary, isn't it? Do you think you'll still be here in November?"

Smiling, Piers teased: "I'll be here in November... January? Hmm."
