GOOD Morning Britain's Ben Shephard joked he needed "a lie down" after Kate Garraway made an "embarrassing" blunder live on-air.
The ITV co-stars and BFFs have been reunited following a variety of Good Morning Britain presenter shake-ups during the summer holidays.
Kate, 56, and Ben, 48, are close pals on and off-set, which often sparks hilarious banter on the breakfast show.
Thursday's episode was no exception, with the pair discussing Jemma Redgrave, 58.
The actress played Kate Stewart in a host of Doctor Who episodes and will soon star in a spin-off for the Time Lord series.
GMB favourite Kate was discussing Jemma's upcoming roles and stated she would be playing an "octopus on-stage," claiming she was "very intrigued to see that."

Struggling to muffle his giggles, Ben clarified the star would in fact be playing a scientist who looked after the sea creature – rather than the eight-legged octopus itself.
Kate admitted she had been concerned about the concept since the team's morning meeting, leading Ben to admit: "It's only my first day back as well.
"How has anyone coped?" to which Kate joked: "They are all in therapy!"
Ben then added: "I need a lie down!"

Kate opened up on Derek's progress – saying "we keep ploughing on."
Kate exclusively told The Sun: “He's doing alright. There’s been no dramatic progress I’m afraid but we keep ploughing on.
