Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter lets Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes every Sunday

Television presenter Kate Garraway apologised to Good Morning Britain viewers on Monday as she phone went off live on air.

The 53-year-old broadcaster was back on our screens alongside Ben Shephard to host the latest edition of the ITV breakfast show.

Kate and Ben filled in for Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid. as the regular presenters enjoyed a half-term break.

However, things got off to a tricky start for Kate as she forgot to put her phone on silent before she went live on air.

The former I'm A Celebrity was talking about what was coming up on the show when her phone made a noise.

Ben interrupted Kate to ask: "Any chance you can turn your phone off?"

Ever the professional, Kate continued: "Your watching Good Morning Britain on ITV. I'm just going to pop this on silent.

Ben, 45, found the funny side and asked his close friend if it was Mick the milkman on the phone.

He joked: "Is it Mick the milkman on the phone?

Mother of two Kate replied: "Mick's probably at home like stop it, my wife is going to leave me."

Tipping Point host Ben couldn't help but bring up Kate's milkman again after she accidentally made an innuendo about him last week.

Kate's co-star were left howling in laughter during Friday's show after she praised Mick for "offering her extras".

Ben read out messages of appreciation from viewers who have been touched by kindness during the pandemic.

Kate later cut in to offer her thanks to her family's milkman who has kept up her milk delivery amid her personal struggles.

"Mick, my milkman, who has just been amazing," said Kate.

"He has absolutely just kept me going. He'll leave me a little note saying 'do you need anything extra other than the milk?'

Kate had no idea what she had alluded to before her co-stars Ben and Richard Arnold burst out laughing.

Throwing her head back before covering her face in embarrassment, Kate added: "I mean, like bread, butter or orange juice, which he also supplies. He leaves a little smiley face."

Amused Ben asked: "Are you still answering the door in your dressing gown and fluffy slippers?

Kate laughed: "…and a shower cap."

She added: "Mick, thank you. Shall we move on as I've got myself in trouble. Even I didn't see that one coming."

Ben later revealed Mick the milkman was trending on Twitter, with Kate laughing: "Oh God I hope his family weren't watching. He's going to get back from his round and they'll say 'what the heck has been going on?'"

It was a rare moment of light-relief for Kate who has been struggling as a single mum while her husband Derek Draper remains in intensive care.

He's been battling coronavirus since March – and although he's now beaten the virus, he's been unable to gain consciousness from his induced coma.
