Good Morning Britain’s Dr Hilary Jones seemingly put his foot in it by accidentally breaking social distancing rules live on air.
The medical expert, who has become the face of sticking to guidelines in the face of lockdown and government ruling, was seen getting too close to Richard Arnold as he entered the studio.
Richard, who is celebrating his birthday today, was called from backstage onto the main floor as Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid wanted to mark the occasion.
However, he wasn’t allowed in because the team have to restrict the number of people in the filming space.
An annoyed Piers then said: ‘Honestly, the fact that we can’t bring him in and wish him happy birthday… Dr Hilary, you might have to leave for five minutes.’
But as Dr Hilary went to leave, Richard stuck his head through the door, and Piers and Susanna sounded panicked as the duo danced around each other live on air, trying but failing to keep to the 2m distance rule.
Susanna shrieked as the pair broke the rules and told them: ‘No, no, no! You’re supposed to be socially distanced!’
Piers told the pair: ‘You’re too close! This is the problem with doctors!’
Hopefully, their little faux pas may soon be a thing of the past, with more development news giving hope that a vaccine is on its way.
Dr Hilary has been positive about the revelation of the three vaccines over the past weeks, but has warned that there’s still developments and side effects to be made.
He also fears it could put massive pressure on GPs, who may have to work overtime in order to administer the vaccine.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
