KATE Garraway was left red-face this morning after making an accidental innuendo about her milkman.
The 53-year-old’s Good Morning Britain co-stars howled with laughter as she praised her milkman Mick for “offering her extras”.
Ben Shepherd was reading out messages of appreciation from viewers who have been touched by kindness during the pandemic.
Kate 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.
She’s been off work from Good Morning Britain for three weeks after show bosses gave her a “long holiday at home”.
