Gyles Brandreth savagely mocked This Morning host Eamonn Holmes after he called his wife Ruth Langsford his “carer”.
And it wasn’t long until he had the presenters and the crew in hysterics with his cheeky comment.
What happened with Gyles and Eamonn on This Morning?
Gyles, 73, made the comment after Eamonn made a gaffe during a topical discussion segment.
“I’m getting carried away with you and Sheila Hancock on that canal boat on Channel 5,” Eamonn said.
“It’s actually Channel 4,” Gyles corrected and added, “ask your carer to use the thing, it’s called a channel-changer.
“It’s just before Gogglebox, on which you also feature.”
The jokes weren’t over just yet
But Gyles wasn’t finished with the ribbing just yet.
“Have you told him he’s on it?” he turned to Ruth and asked.
Ruth laughed and was in on the joke as she shouted to her husband: “You’re on it, dear!”
However, there was time for one more dig from Gyles.
The trio were discussing the Covid situation, and Gyles said: “Can I just say, I think I’ve got to start pinging you because I think you’ve got to start spending more time at home.
“Have you done the quiz on him? I think, as his carer, he’d find it quite entertaining in the morning.
“HELLO EAMONN, I’VE GOT A NICE QUIZ FOR YOU TODAY,” he mock-shouted.
“Look at you,” Eamonn replied, laughing. “You’re 115.”

How did Eamonn address fans earlier in the day?
Earlier on in the day, Eamonn recorded a video for fans on Instagram.
Sitting in the back of his car on the way to the This Morning studio, he praised the beautiful weather and wished fans a happy Friday.
He also thanked viewers for giving he and Ruth a warm welcome back to the show and said the first week had been a “pleasure”.
“One [week] down, six to go,” he said.
