Ben Fogle this morning sent Good Morning Britain presenters Susanna Reid into a laughing fit as he made an x-rated statement live on air during an interview.
The 46 year old mother-of-four was sat alongside co-presenter Ben Shephard, who is standing in for usual suspect Piers Morgan, when Ben Fogle appeared in Southampton via video link to the London studio to urge viewers to protect Oysters, which he stressed are vital to saving the Solent – the strait that separates the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England.
However things took a saucy turn when Susanna flirted with the naturalist asking if he believes in their aphrodisiac qualities.
Ben didn’t hold back as he delighted Susanna with a steamy confession: “I once took part in an oyster eating championship and I did not feel horny.”
The star’s filthy quip left her red faced on the sofa as she covered her face with hands and shrieked, whilst Shephard laughed along beside her.
Ben then joked: “I’ll save it for you Susanna – or Ben – whoever feels they might need some. I’ll bring some back”
Viewers took to social media to join in the fun, with many loving the rude turn the morning show took as they readied themselves for work.
“@susannareid100 @GMB think you might have walked merrily into that one! #thatsabigoyster @Benfogle But, guess it’s good to know,” winked one, as another followed: “@GMB at @Benfogle eating 88 oysters in 3 mins ‘and it didn’t make him feel horny.”
