This Morning’s Dermot O’Leary unimpressed as guest snubs him with name dig

This Morning presenter Dermot O'Leary wasn't thrilled as LBC presenter Nick Ferrari snubbed him on air while talking with him, Alison Hammond and Gyles Brandreth.

The group were talking about foreign holidays being under threat due to the government's new traffic light system when radio host Nick made his faux pas.

He said: "Why can't someone in this country of a certain level with double vaccinations go to another country where there is a similar sort of level?" he said.

"And I'm just thinking Giles, and everyone else, Alison… and the other fella," causing co-star Alison to burst into laughter next to Dermot.

Dermot could be seen smiling, but he did not seem thrilled as Nick quickly explained his slip-up, saying: "I was just checking he's there, he's been so quiet! He's never been this quiet, I thought he was having a tea break!"

The conversation quickly moved on as Nick added: "I'm just thinking that if we don't do this, there are millions of jobs that are reliant in Britain on the airlines, on the travel business, and that is what you have to think of."

But he couldn't resist making another dig later in the conversation, as when Dermot contributed to the debate, Nick made another comment about him definitely being there and speaking up.

Dermot and Alison have been presenting This Morning all week as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield have been having a break over the half-term holidays.

The decision sparked backlash as Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes normally present the half-term breaks, but they confirmed they wouldn't be making an appearance.

Fans took to social media to share their disappointment on Monday, as one wrote: "Where’s Eamonn and Ruth? They where meant to be doing the school holidays."

Another said: "Miss them so much."

Alison and Dermot replaced Ruth and Eamonn in the Friday slots back in January, with the pair being moved to holiday cover, as fans watching them all week during the February half-term.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
