This Morning was thrown into chaos as an unexpected helicopter landed right next to set live on air, nearly sending John Torode flying and causing Davina McCall and Rochelle Humes to have a bit of a meltdown.
Safe to say, they were blown away by it all. We’ll see ourselves out.
The usually pretty tame cooking section, which saw John whipping up crab linguine outside, all started to go downhill as a helicopter flying overhead began drowning out the audio.
Before we knew it, John’s ingredients were gone with the wind and he was clutching on to his linguine for dear life.
Presenters Rochelle and Davina broke down giggling as they pointed out: ‘It’s landing! It’s blowing everything away!’
Luckily, John took it all in his stride as he casually continued with the recipe, despite most of his ingredients being completely destroyed.
‘I asked it to come in about half an hour to pick me up,’ the presenter laughed, with Rochelle and Davina dubbing his efforts to keep the show going ‘heroic’.
Understandably, viewers found the whole thing hilarious, with one tweeting: ‘I love it when live TV goes wrong! That was so funny! @JohnTorode1 you are a true professional.’
Another viewer wrote: ‘Actually creasing at a helicopter flying over John Torode and blowing half his ingredients away.’
‘The helicopter landing on @JohnTorode1 on #ThisMorning is one the best things I’ve seen on tele this year!!!’ another pointed out.
And fans might be set to get more of the beloved daytime TV show, with it recently being reported that This Morning will fill in for the Jeremy Kyle Show with a ‘bumper’ time slot.
The Mirror reports that a ‘bumper This Morning’ time-slot will see the hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield awarded with significant pay increases.
The proposed rejig will see 30 minutes of news kick things off at 6am, before a handover to Piers Morgan and Susannah Reid on Good Morning Britain at 6.30am.
Lorraine usually starts at 8.30am but will be moved to 9am before handing over to Holly and Phil at 10am.
Bosses are hoping to see the various hosts interact with each other for ‘more of a live event’.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30 on ITV.
