Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh, 43, had to issue an apology to Olympic Silver medallist Roger Black as she forgot the guest was on a video call while she hosted in the studio. The presenter became flustered after being told by behind-the-scenes producers Roger was still with them. Luckily for her, Roger found the incident quite funny and laughed the situation off.
Ranvir and co-host Sean Fletcher were joined on the panel by Dr Amir Kahn, Lord Jeffrey Archer, and Miatta Fahnbulleh in the studio.
Joining them also was Olympic silver medallist Roger, who was dialling in from home via a video call.
Ranvir, Sean and the other guests seemed to get carried away and lost in their discussion, as the presenter soon turned red-faced when she had realised she’d forgotten about Roger.
Ten minutes into discussing the current issues that Tokyo Olympians are having at the moment with Covid, Ranvir said: “Let’s bring in Roger Black as well… the problem Roger Black about not being in the studio is that we don’t see your lovely face the entire time.

“And then somebody in our ear goes: ‘Roger is still here.’
“So I’m terribly sorry if you put your hand up at any point during that – we couldn’t see you!”
Luckily for the GMB team, Roger saw the funny side of the situation and joked: “I was going to make a cup of tea!”
He re-joined the conversation with Lord Archer asking if he had Covid, to which he confirmed he had despite receiving both jabs.
While Roger was heavily involved in the discussion regarding the Tokyo Olympics games, he remained silent and off-screen while the rest of the panel discussed recent Covid news such as travel restrictions and jabs for 16-year-olds.
Ranvir’s blunder comes shortly after GMB co-star Kate Garraway also suffered an awkward moment on-air during the show on Wednesday.
The 54-year-old star was mid-sentence introducing ITV’s weather presenter, Des Colman, when the breakfast show’s jingle was played, and she was soon cut off ahead of the weather report.
However, being the experienced professional she is, Kate smoothly picked up where she left off without a hitch and was soon back on everyone’s screens.

The presenter was explaining to viewers: “Des Colman is always a gold winner for us, and he’s in the skate park in Hemel Hempstead now. He didn’t get on brilliantly with horses at…”
The breakfast jingle started to play and an ad from GMB’s weather sponsor pushed Kate off of viewers screens.
Shortly Kate and Ben returned to the show alongside Des, who was in a skate park.
Kate also revealed bosses had warned her not “to cause trouble” when she had a mix-up with her facts about the Olympics.
Meanwhile, on Monday’s show, Kate shared an update on her husband Derek’s ongoing battle with long Covid.
Listing some of the initial symptoms Derek had, Kate went on to reveal the damage long Covid had done to parts of his body.
She explained: “That’s the thing, more and more [symptoms] are emerging as different parts of the body are damaged.
“I know Derek is an extreme example but, all the time there are more issues. Initially, it was a bit of exhaustion and now it seems to be more of them presenting.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
