This Morning host Vernon Kay rushed to the defence of national treasure Jane McDonald on the show earlier today (August 4).

However, talk soon turned to Jane and a story about a man who had her CD stuck repeat in his car.

This Morning host Vernon Kay leaps to Jane’s defence

Rochelle Humes opened the segment, detailing 76-year-old John’s predicament.

The This Morning host revealed he was being “driven round the bend” after his car stereo broke.

As a result, the CD got stuck and it would only play one song of Jane’s.

Rochelle said: “Jane McDonald is stuck on my car’s CD player.”

“She’s not sat on it,” Vernon joked.

“Poor Jane,” Tom quipped. “She’s stuck to the CD player.”

As Rochelle continued to explain John was being “driven around the bend”, Tom chipped in with his dig at national treasure Jane.

“No, sorry that’s not fair of me,” he added, clearly realising the error of his ways.

Vernon wasn’t letting him get away with insulting the iconic Jane, though.

He hit back and issued a warning to Tom, joking: “Oh, you are done for. It’s game over.”

However, This Morning fans appeared to be on the side of Tom on Twitter.

One commented: “Yup scrap the car!”

Another agreed and said: “Sell the car!!”
