‘Traumatised’ Kate Garraway screams as Ben Shephard ‘cuts her hair’ in GMB prank

Ben was pulling a fast one on his co-star!

Kate Garraway screamed as Ben Shephard pretended to cut her hair during this morning's Good Morning Britain.

The presenters were discussing the viral clip of a woman who fainted on Turkish TV after getting too much of her hair cut off during a makeover segment.

Ben was quick to ask his co-stars Kate and Charlotte Hawkins: "Would you let me cut your hair?"

Charlotte quickly said: "Absolutely not."

Speaking about the woman fainting, Kate admitted: "I'd be the same. It is a big thing for women isn't it, hair?"

Ben then pulled out a pair of scissors as Kate exclaimed: "No you can't!"

Ben said: "But you've got so much of it," to which Kate replied: "You're not a trained hairdresser and those look like sewing scissors!"

He said: "Scissors are scissors. Just a little bit."

Kate then turned around and Ben started chopping the back of her barnet.

Kate screamed: "No! No, don't don't don't, seriously, Ben, honestly!"

Ben admitted: "It's not as easy as I thought it was going to be."

He then held a huge piece of blonde hair in his hand as a mortified Kate said: "Ben! You can't do that. That's not funny.

"You can't do that to someone. It's my hair!"

Ben said: "I think it looks alright. That was really much harder than I thought it was going to be."

Charlotte quipped: "Don't think you'll be getting any calls to do any hairdressing any time soon, will you?"

That was nearly the end of a very beautiful 20-year friendship.

Kate asked: "Have I got a massive hole at the back?" to which Ben laughed: "There's not a massive hole in the back!"

He then said: "Don't worry... it wasn't real. I pulled a fast one."

Looking very relieved, Kate said: "Flipping heck!

Another said: "Ben I think you must have had a kick under the desk this morning, good fun!" while a third added: "GMB is getting better & better loving the sense of humour."
