49 Times This Morning Outdid Itself In The Ridiculous Stakes

By Ash Percival

With the majority of us confined to our living rooms at the moment, many are turning to daytime TV to keep us both informed and entertained during the coronavirus outbreak.

One such daytime show that’s currently experiencing a huge spike in viewers is This Morning, which attracted its highest ratings in more than two years on 18 March.

The show has taken a somewhat more serious tone over the last few weeks, guiding people through life during the pandemic – but it certainly isn’t always this way.

As a moment of light relief, we’re reliving some of the show’s more surreal moments by counting up all the times it outdid itself in the ridiculous stakes…

1. When this pensioner revealed she got through “a whole tube of KY Jelly” on the first night with her toyboy fiancé

2. When Alison Hammond accidentally pushed a man into the Albert Dock

3. When a woman married her dog in a live ceremony conducted by Alison, and attended by Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes
