Bill, 64, had to step down from presenting BBC Breakfast in 2016 as he battled prostate cancer, while Susanna quit and moved to ITV in 2014.

"You know that they call Wednesday hump day. Bill is really having one of those Wednesdays," she explained to viewers.

"My earpiece popped out in the break and we can't find it anywhere," Bill revealed. "So the entire team - thousands of people who work in the studio..."

If you think we've staged this we absolutely did not, this is what happened in the break.

Susanna added: "If you think we've staged this we absolutely did not, this is what happened in the break."

The mystery was soon solved when one of the team found the earpiece lodged in Bill's scripts, which could be seen clearly from the other side of the desk.
