Ranvir Singh calls out hugely 'awkward' moment for This Morning hosts | The Sun

RANVIR Singh called out a hugely "awkward" moment for the This Morning presenting team live on-air.

The Good Morning Britain reporter, 45, is standing in for Lorraine Kelly, 63, to front her flagship chat show Lorraine during the half-term break.

After her final interview wrapped, Ranvir crossed over to the This Morning studios where Dermot O'Leary, 50, and Alison Hammond, 48, were preparing to present.

Yet instead of giving a teaser about what was to come, the pair were captured having a natter.

Dermot asked an assistant if he could have a glass of water before he said he "couldn't hear" what was going on.

He could be seen stood up, with Alison tapping on her phone on the couch.

As the live link finally functioned, Ranvir quipped: "We are on you!

"Are you ready for us my loves?"

Alison let out a giggle as she confessed: "We wasn't!"

Dermot added: "We didn't hear you, I'm sorry," as Ranvir added: "Have we come to you a bit early? Have we interrupted?"

Styling it out, Dermot said: "Hi Ranvir, we are totally ready, because here's what's coming up on the show today."

As they finished their mini preview, Ranvir joked: "That was smooth Dermot, nobody noticed, nobody noticed that!"

He flapped away the camera with his hand as Alison added: "Noone, no one."

Eagle-eyed show fans also noticed the blunder.

One commented on Twitter: "That was awkward," followed by a laughing Emoji face.

Another quizzed: "What have Alison and Dermot been doing?"

Alison and Dermot – who usually present on Friday's – are at the This Morning helm after being confirmed by ITV as emergency stand-in hosts.

The broadcaster released a statement explaining that members of the This Morning family would be stepping into the shoes Phil Schofield, 61, after he made the shock announcement he was quitting last week.

Tensions between Phil and co-star Holly Willoughby, 42, led to the star releasing a shock statement he was stepping back from the show.

The presenting pair saw their once-close relationship crumble in recent weeks with “seismic” summer shake-up predicted.

Meanwhile, Alison and Dermot were said to have been "furious" at being asked to front a tribute to Phil after his affair with a This Morning assistant was exposed.
