Charlotte Hawkins added: "What?! I don't know who allowed that."

"I thought I'd have a little break," Dr Hilary laughed. Charlotte said: "It's very well deserved."

Today's show saw Dr Hilary give advice to glasses wearers now masks are set to become mandatory in shops from July 24.

With people complaining their glasses have been steaming up, Dr Hilary said: "So you wear your glasses outside above the mask so you don't get the steam from your breath steaming up the inside of your glasses.

"And you previously dip your glasses in soapy water and allow them to dry naturally, that gives a sort of anti-fog affect, which is temporary, but it's worth having anyway."

Good Morning Britain continues Monday to Friday at 6am on ITV.
