Richard, 62, was joined by Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, 51, to host the ITV news show today, continuing his stint filling in for regular host, Piers Morgan, 54.
As the show got underway this morning, Kate joked about Richard’s fake tan mishap he made last week, with the presenter explaining his mistake and how it came about.
The iconic television presenter received quite the reaction to his appearance last week when Richard hosted the show with a tan.
However, in response to Kate’s joke about his fake tan error, the presenter let drop an expletive again, following another use of foul language last week.
He’s sworn again
Kate asked her stand-in co-host, making light of his mistake: “So, this morning you’re going to stay the same colour all morning?”
Richard exclaimed: “I b***** hope so,” but as soon as he said the remark, he knew he’d made a hiccup and said: “Oh no, he’s sworn again.”
Embarrassed by his use of foul language following last week’s mishap, Richard threw his head into his hands as he realised what he’d done.
As his colleagues burst into laughter, news reporter on the desk Charlotte Hawkins, 43, said: “It’s five minutes past six and you’re off already.”
Entertainment reporter Richard Arnold, 49, remarked: “All I had to do was open the show with expletives and put fake tan on to get the amount of coverage you got, I’d have started it years ago.”
Before the presenter forgot his place, he spoke with his colleagues how he’d made the fake tan faux pas, telling them: “When you get up early, you don’t want to disturb your partner, so, I get ready in the kitchen.”
Richard continued: “Because I’ve been told off for having stubble, I had a dry shave in the kitchen, I had about five minutes to spare.
“It was quite itchy. So, I reached into the cupboard and I got what I thought was aftershave balm out, which I haven’t used for ages, and squirted on, put it on. I thought it smelt a bit funny.
“As I was driving in, I thought, ‘It smells a bit woody’ but I thought it was probably past its sell by date.
“When I got home on Wednesday and saw what I looked like, you should see the towel, it’s black,” Richard continued, before adding: “I went to the cupboard and it wasn’t aftershave balm, it was Chloe’s or Judy’s from ages ago fake tan.”
Joining about the response he received, Richard told is colleagues and viewers: “All I can do is apologise,” before he dropped the expletive.
Richard’s mistake last week occurred when the presenter was interviewing The Voice UK 2019 winner Molly Hocking, 18, and her coach Olly Murs, 34.
The veteran presenter’s use of foul language was a little stronger however, as he asked the winner if she thought at the time: “S**t I won it?”
Though, the presenter nor the guests reacted to the moment and the interview progressed as planned but Richard later addressed his expletive remark.
Responding to the use of foul language, Richard said: “Apparently I may have said the word beginning in S and ending in T. I didn’t realise I’d said it.
“I do apologise,” he continued.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
