Good Morning Britain’s Adil Ray can’t hold in his laughter after Kate Garraway makes cheeky innuendo while eating toast
The TV presenter, 46, is filling in for the month of April after former host Piers Morgan quit the programme.
After returning from an ad break, Kate, 53, had taken a bite of food with Adil telling viewers: ‘I’ll do this bit because Kate’s just eating some toast…’
Joke: Adil Ray got a case of the giggles on Wednesday’s episode of Good Morning Britain over his co-host Kate Garraway’s cheeky toast innuendo
Finishing her toast, Kate held out her arms and said: ‘I’ve swallowed’.
Unable to hold in his laughter, Adil replied: ‘Oh, you’ve swallowed.’
‘I was ready to go,’ Kate replied.
Adil then looked at his co-host and mouthed the words ‘I’m sorry’ as they went to a competition.

It comes after Adil took to Twitter on Saturday and revealed he will also be co-hosting with Susanna Reid throughout April.
The broadcaster tweeted: ‘Some news for you….I will be co hosting @gmb throughout the whole of April Mon to Weds, starting this Monday with @kategarraway and with @susannareid100 after the hols.
‘I would love for you to make it your daily wake up if you fancy it! #goodmorningbritain.’
Adil has been a regular stand-in presenter on Good Morning Britain since 2018 and has previously co-hosted the ITV show with both Susanna, 50, and Kate.
Quip: Finishing her toast, Kate held out her arms and said: ‘I’ve swallowed’ to which Adil replied: ‘Oh, you’ve swallowed.’
It comes after it was claimed that Susanna is reportedly being lined up as the solo star of Good Morning Britain following Piers’ departure from the breakfast show.
Susanna will allegedly continue her role as host alongside rotating co-stars for the next six months, as bosses rush to ensure she doesn’t follow Piers’ footsteps by quitting.
It’s also been reported that bosses are keen to have Alex Beresford make more regular appearances as GMB’s host, while competition star Andi Peters is also allegedly being lined up for a bigger role.

* PRICES MAY NOT BE AS ADVERTISED
According to The Sun, bosses will have Susanna take control of GMB in the coming weeks, with the star set to have input in the show behind-the-scenes.
The former BBC Breakfast star will continue to appear alongside regular hosts Ben Shephard and Alex, but bosses haven’t ruled out a long-term replacement for Piers in the future.
Piers, 56, famously left GMB after saying he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan Markle’s account of experiencing racism and other charges against her husband Prince Harry’s Royal Family during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Kate has ‘spent thousands’ adapting her North London house for her Covid-stricken husband Derek Draper prior to his return to the family home last Wednesday after his year-long hospital stay.
The presenter has transformed the family home to suit the former lobbyist’s needs as he is required to have 24/7 care while he continues his recovery.
It comes after Kate admitted that it has been ‘completely overwhelming but also wonderful’ having Derek back home during a candid interview on Monday’s GMB.
Kate revealed the changes she made to the family home on her heartbreaking documentary Finding Derek last month where she added a wheelchair lift, wet room, alarm system and a ground-floor bedroom to the house.
The presenter installed the lift so that her home is wheelchair-accessible for Derek, who will be using a wheelchair during his recovery at home. Kate has also converted the ground floor lounge into his new bedroom, which has been fitted with a hospital bed for him because the virus has damaged the former lobbyist’s muscles.

Kate explained to viewers: ‘At the moment what we’re doing, we’ve got an occupational therapist that deals with the lay out of the home, looking at putting in a wet room – basically, ground floor living.
‘He’ll either be on a stretcher or a wheelchair. And also they’re trying to figure out how to put a lift in the garden.’
Kate also revealed that she will sleep downstairs in a ‘put-me-up bed’ so that she can be close to Derek while she picked small mosaic tiles that are Derek’s favourite for the new bathroom.
The presenter also has a team of carers coming into the house and she said it’s like ‘having a ward at home now because he needs so much equipment’, her co-host Ben Shephard told ITV’s Good Morning Britain recently.
Other features in the home include floor-to-ceiling windows looking out into the garden, which allow Derek to watch his and Kate’s children Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11, outside.
Adaptions: The presenter has transformed the family home to suit the former lobbyist’s needs as he is required to have 24/7 care while he continues his recovery
The TV presenter has had their family home adapted so that Derek could come back and receive round-the-clock care at their North London property.
Kate is now believed to be facing medical bills costing her tens of thousands.
Earlier this week, Kate admitted it had been ‘completely overwhelming but also wonderful’ having Derek back home during a candid interview on Monday’s Good Morning Britain.
The presenter sweetly added that their two children Darcey, 15, and son Billy, 11, ‘are over the moon and overwhelmed in equal measure’ at having Derek back, who will work with physiotherapists and speech therapists.
Kate likened it to bringing home a newborn baby, saying that after extensive planning she asked herself ‘what the heck do we do now?’, but she stressed: ‘It has been completely overwhelming but also wonderful.’

The star added: ‘We are over the moon and overwhelmed in equal measure…
‘I do remember that day when you brought home your first born and you had sort of been planning for nine months and then you think “What the heck do we do now?”
‘It’s a little bit like that feeling. Its been completely overwhelming but also wonderful.’
Kate added: ‘It was a medical reason for coming home as well as our desire and his desire to to encourage a more normal environment to stimulate his recovery and consciousness and they [the children] have been absolutely loving it.
Really helpful. It’s been great actually.’

But she said after a year in intensive care, their children – Darcey and Billy – have started ‘deferring’ questions to their father.
Kate added: ‘I’ve noticed a little bit of deferring actually, like “should we check with dad?”. And I’m like, “Hold on, wait a minute, hang on a minute I’m still the boss.” They are absolutely excited and overwhelmed. And obviously we are there for support but I’m not a doctor.’
Reflecting on one sweet moment, the presenter said: ‘Last night, [my youngest son] was going to bed, he was saying, “Mum, can we just take a moment. He’s still home!”
‘It’s been fantastic, overwhelming and challenging. And obviously, there’s a long way to go to see more of the Derek that we love and the dad that we love, and we have to see how that goes. But’s it’s just wonderful to have him there.’
Kate also revealed how her home has been fitted with an alarm system in case Draper needs urgent attention.
Moving things around: The presenter installed the lift so that her home is wheelchair-accessibly for Derek, who will be using a wheelchair during his recovery at home
She said: ‘He can press it with his right hand if he needs us. There are people there for Derek, there is someone there for the children. It was a slightly strange feeling when I thought “oh my goodness”. We hope this will be the future situation and he won’t have to go back to hospital.’
Elsewhere, on Friday’s Good Morning Britain, Kate tearfully recalled moments from the last few days, including setting the table for four people instead of three, after a year of it being just her and the children at home.
She said that having Derek home felt ‘like the start of a new chapter but a really really big important one’, remarking on the significance of setting the dinner table for four instead of three.
Kate began to well up as she spoke about making Derek one of her casseroles, recalling: ‘As I was laying out the plates I realised I was laying out four, it makes me cry now, and Darcey was saying, “Oh, we’re going to put four spoons down”.
‘And Billy was like, “Have we got enough mash?” I said, “Yes, I don’t think dad’s going to be eating that much,” but he suddenly remembered dad’s old portions.
‘We weren’t all sitting around the dinner table, we just constructed a version of it. It just feels like the start of a huge chapter, but a really big and important one. It’s such a silly little thing but it was just oh my goodness. It’s massive’.

Kate added that Derek is ‘aware’ that he’s home and ‘is responding all the time’ but he is unable to talk.
Recalling the moment he finally came home, Kate said: ‘When we came in the door and pulled up, I could see Darcey and Billy looking out the window and they ran out and ran to the door and he immediately burst into tears and there was a lot of hugging.
‘He knew he was home. He is responding all the time, what he’s not able to do is talk. But he is responding and aware where he is.
‘There have been so many lovely little moments – he can swallow a little bit now so I said ‘lets get you round the table for a little bit.’
Discussing Derek’s ongoing health needs, she explained: ‘He can’t really move, he needs a lot of help. It’s 24/7 care. I haven’t really slept as you can probably tell.
‘It’s a new team now helping him and working with him. It’s going to take a lot of adjustment. On top of the care side there’s also the therapeutic side. This isn’t just for us, but helping it will prompt some recovery’.

Former lobbyist Derek has now been taken off all hospital machines, but his family have been warned he still has a long way to go to recover from the virus.
Kate explained that while she’s pleased to see Derek’s progress, things seem to have slowed down.
She revealed: ‘It’s going to take a lot of adjustment. But on top of the care side, there’s the very specialised therapeutic intervention, which will have to come in to make sure that this isn’t just about getting him with us for us, it’s hoping that actually this will prompt… some recovery.
‘He’s definitely sort of plateaued at this level. Obviously we’re very grateful for this level but want to see if we can move forward, if we can get him speaking more, able to move more and see what we can draw out.
‘It’s going to be very slow and a bit of wait and see. The physiotherapy, the occupational therapy, neuropsychology as well and speech and language therapy all working on a programme.
Candid: Earlier this week, Kate admitted it had been ‘completely overwhelming but also wonderful’ having Derek back home during a candid interview on Monday’s Good Morning Britain (pictured in 2019)
‘What they’ve said is purpose is what they hope will come in, so when they see the children playing, will it perhaps prompt him more to say, ‘What you building with your Lego, Bill?’ or ‘What are you doing Darcey?’ rather than a forced situation in a vacuum in a room with people in PPE.’
She continued: ‘You saw in the documentary, there have been improvements in autumn, he’s using more words, and there are more things that he can do now. He’s got some more movement in his hands, he can show emotion.
‘But it felt as though everything had stalled medically and if anything was going slightly back. Obviously within the very necessary Covid restrictions that are in place, I couldn’t visit, family couldn’t visit, even some of the therapeutic things we would want to do to help him move forward couldn’t happen, so taking all that into account, they said, ‘Right let’s give this a go, let’s get him home safely.’
‘So it does feel a little bit like the hospital has come home with me at the moment, as we’ve got all sorts of professional people making sure everything is safe and then see how being in the family environment could help.’
She added that their children have been ‘amazing’ throughout, stating ‘they’ve both just not stopped cuddling him’.
