    Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard apologies for failing to wear a face covering while paying for petrol as he discusses Jeremy Corbyn’s mask slip

    Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard was forced to issue an apology, after forgetting to wear a mask while paying for petrol on Thursday.

    Speaking on Friday’s broadcast of his show, the host, 45, made the confession while discussing the criticism Jeremy Corbyn received for wearing a mask under his nose. 

    He said: ‘Now we all know that’s not how it’s supposed to be worn. But I was at a petrol station yesterday. I filled my car up, I was miles away, and when I walked into the petrol station I suddenly realised I didn’t have my mask on as I got to the desk.

    ‘I was so apologetic, I said, “I’m so sorry I’ve completely forgotten”. I pulled my jumper over my face and the person behind the screen and said don’t worry you can’t go running out without paying, that looks suspicious.

    ‘It just makes you realise that with that focus on you can suddenly make a mistake about wearing masks. They were very understanding, I was very apologetic.’

    GMB’s resident medic Dr. Hilary Jones, 67, also admitted to having a slip of his own as he entered a pharmacy.

    He recalled: ‘I was in a hurry charging around, I went in for an emergency prescription for one of my patients.

    ‘I suddenly realised after 20 seconds, “Oh my goodness I’ve forgotten my mask”. I said to the chemist, “I do apologise, I should have my mask on”. I should know, but it’s so easy to do.’

    Beleaguered former Labour leader Corbyn, who on Thursday was suspended from the party amid the ongoing row over antisemitism was criticised for not wearing his mask properly as the UK buckles under a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Meanwhile, GMB’s Alex Beresford revealed on Wednesday that he had pulled out of presenting the ITV show for the rest of the week after ‘falling unwell with a cold’.

    The broadcaster, 40, told fans he’d decided to stay at home after becoming ill due to increased concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus pandemic.

    Alex – who had been scheduled to host This Morning with Charlotte Hawkins on Thursday and Friday – was replaced by Ben Shephard, as the regular presenting team takes a break for the half-term.

    Alex tweeted on Wednesday: ‘BREAKING: Due to having a cold and feeling unwell I won’t be hosting @gmb tomorrow or Friday.

    He penned: ‘Whooooooaaaah where did the last 40 years go. I am so thankful that I got to this milestone because no one is promised tomorrow. 

    ‘I can’t lie I feel great inside and I’m oddly excited about what’s to come. I say oddly because when I hit 30 I thought I was old. Today I woke up at 4:30am like a true old man and I can’t wait for my afternoon nap #forty #blessed.’

    Wow! Last week, he left a number of his followers swooning as he celebrated his 40th birthday with a shirtless snap
