Good Morning Britain today: “I apologise”

However, noticing her gaffe she quickly corrected herself and apologised to viewers.

“Sorry, 7 o’clock,” she said.

Sean chuckled and responded: “I was going to say, but…”

“I was wishing the time away there, wasn’t I?” Charlotte said.

Sean then charitably said he’d let his co-host get away with that one.

“I could hear everyone in my ear saying ‘Oh, she’s not done something quite right there’,” she laughed.

“I apologise. Don’t worry, you’re not really late for whatever you think you might have missed this morning.”
