Gethin Jones has reassured fans after undergoing eye surgery.
The Morning Live presenter posted a selfie with an eye shield taped over his face, simply writing in the caption: ‘Night! ?’.
Fans and friends were left a little worried – with many also cracking jokes at his expense.
Saffron Barker wrote: ‘Hope all is okay!! Xx’, with writer Russell T Davies adding: ‘Aieeee ?xx’.
One follower joked: ‘If this is your attempt at getting a bond villan [sic] role in a movie ?- I’m here for it,’ while another quipped: ‘Eye hope all is ok ???.’
However, Gethin went on to explain that there’s nothing to worry about.
‘I had laser eye surgery 10 years ago – changed my life!’ he said. ‘Needed a bit of a tweak to one eye…I was struggling to see autocue etc (so that’s what I’m blaming any fluffed lines on!’
The 43-year-old has been hosting Morning Live with with Kym Marsh since late last year.
While the pair have been working hard throughout the pandemic, they’ve clearly not had much time to hang out as friends, with Gethin recently sharing a snap of the pair of them finally getting a drink together – and clutching hot water bottles as they battled the chilly British weather.

‘102 shows later, we finally see each other socially!’ he wrote. ‘So many have adapted to this new world of working, it was nice to have a beer with my “on-air” partner.
‘We talked about how grateful we were to go to work every day and how lucky we are to be surrounded by the on and off screen ML family. It’s been a tough year for so many but today we’re counting our blessings. Cheers to all of you ??’.
Morning Live kicked off in October with strong ratings, bringing us a One Show-style magazine programme – only 10 hours earlier and set in a 60s-style living room.
The programme was launched to rival ITV morning shows Good Morning Britain and Lorraine. While the Morning Live was initially intended to run for eight weeks, it has become a regular fixture on the channel.
