The star immediately realised her mistake and threw her hands over her mouth.

A stunned Michael said: “Michael Underwear?

“Wow. She actually said that.”

And of course co-host Piers had to get his say in as he said: “Is that what you call him? Oh my God.

“We only call him that off camera.”

Showbiz correspondent Michael attempted to change the conversation by saying: “Anyway, good morning.”

But a still shocked Susanna asked: “How many times have you ever been called Michael Underwear?”

To which Michael replied: “Once, today, and well apart from obviously the horrendous school memories.”

Controversial Piers then interrupted saying: “Well done Susanna, bringing back his mental scars.”

Viewers were amused by the gaffe as one tweeted: “‘Michael Underwear’? What’s Susanna got on her mind in order to make that mistake?! #gmb.”

Another added: “@GMB Love the underwear comment Susanna made me chuckle …ooops!!”

“@GMB Michael underwear .. you made me laugh Susannah,” a third wrote.
