Good Morning Britain was thrown into chaos on Wednesday morning, after a mouse was spotted running around on set.
Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid revealed that during an ad break the rodent had been spotted scurrying across the studio floor, before taking refuge underneath one of the cameras.
‘We’re back to breaking news,’ Piers teased as GMB’s broadcast continued.
‘There’a mouse on the studio floor. There’s been shrieks and wails, a lot of drama here during the commercial break. It’s now under one of the cameras.’
He joked it was like ‘a crocodile had arrived on set’ given all the commotion it had caused, with Ranvir Singh admitting she was terrified of mice, after catching one scurrying across the floor in her house.
Susanna joked that if there was any more sightings of said mouse: ‘We’ll bring you right up to date, we’re across that story and we have a full surveillance team.’
But, as she and Piers tried to continue with the show, they were a little distracted.
‘There’s a lot of commotion behind the camera. Have you found the mouse?’ Susanna asked, as an annoyed Piers tried to move the show along as he said: ‘Can we move on until we get a confirmed sighting?’
Just like that, the mouse then reappeared, with Piers confirming: ‘The mouse came out and its literally this big. A mouse in the studio… what shall we call it?’
And grabbing the chance to mock his BBC Breakfast rival, of course, Piers teased: ‘Shall we call it Dan Walker?’
GMB’s weather girl Laura Tobin then confirmed that the mouse had left the set and made its way over to This Morning instead.
Fans were quick to react on Twitter, with one viewer revealing the chaos had made their morning. They posted: ‘
Watching everyone panic about a mouse in the studio and then seeing how small it was has made my morning. Thanks for that @piersmorgan @susannareid100 #GMB.’
‘@[email protected]@susannareid100 even the gmb mouse as more life in it than @BBCBreakfast#gmb#giveitacracker,’ teased another.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
