Good Morning Britain’s Andi Peters topples over on a boat live on air – before the cops turn up


GOOD Morning Britain’s Andi Peters toppled over in a live broadcast today on a boat in Henley-on-Thames – before the cops turned up and watched him.

The presenter took a risky dive live on air while telling viewers to enter the show’s latest prize to win £95,000.

Chirpy Andi told the presenters before his fall: “Ranvir and Adil, this is the kind of morning you would want. Cruising on the Thames! Let’s go Jonathan!”

But he soon lost his sea legs, tripping over backwards before spinning around and landing not-so-gracefully on the flashy boat’s leather seats.

He left Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh in stitches as he scrambled around on deck.

After getting his body under control, Ranvir said: “You haven’t quite found your sea legs there Andi!

“Can I just say what an honour it is to be on the same show as a professional.”

Later, the cheeky host was chatting to Adil and Ranvir again when they noticed he was being eyed up by the police.

He paused his conversation, turned around, and shouted at the pair of coppers “Do you want an autograph?” as they watched him filming from the road.

However the cops returned to their business and he laughed off the awkward encounter.

The presenter, 49, is most commonly seen on the competition segments for Good Morning Britain and Lorraine.

And it was announced last week that he will replace Lorraine Kelly on her show over the summer – making him the first man to fill the slot in a decade.

Lorraine has headed off on her summer holiday – leaving Andi and Christine Lampard to fill her shoes.

Asked about taking over the role on GMB, Andi said: “That is correct. In the summer holidays while Lorraine goes to have a well deserved break – god bless her, she’s been on for months and months and months.

“I’ll be filling in for Lorraine alongside Christine [Lampard], who will be there as well.”

The last man to replace Lorraine was Michael Ball in 2010.

Andi will be in the seat from August 10 to 21. Meanwhile, Christine will be taking over from July 20 to August 7, before coming back from August 24 to September 1.

The TV personality also spoke about taking over the role to The Mirror.

He said: “I love Lorraine, I’ve known her for ten years, I’m on her show every day with competitions and it’s great to be part of that family.

“So, sitting in for her is an honour, Lorraine is an institution. As much as I adore always giving away money on the competition slots, I’m looking forward to chatting to people and having a whole hour to actually relax into it. I’m a bit of a chatterbox.

“I’ll enjoy having guests on, who want to have a bit of a chinwag and also to be able to do some serious stuff.

“I am happy and jolly, and that will always be there, but obviously I do have an opinion… I’m genuinely really excited.”

ITV’s daytime hosts are having a bit of a shakeup as the presenters take a break for the summer.

On This Morning, Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have left for two months – with regulars Dermot O’Leary, Rochelle Humes and Alison Hammond stepping in.
