During yesterday’s show, GMB host Richard Madeley jokingly called Cat an “awful” presenter. Richard made the joke in a video discussion with Cat, when she was on set for her episode for Lorraine Kelly. The Richard and Judy star, who is currently covering Piers Morgan’s slot after leaving GMB, said: “You and me are doing the same thing here, we’re both guest presenters.
“It’s all the fun with none of the responsibility.”
Cat then responded to the comment, sharing the sentiment.
She said: “Exactly! I can’t believe they’ve let me do it all week.
“I thought I’d get the heave-ho on Monday.”
Richard then jokingly shared his thoughts on Cat’s appearances on the show.
He said: “So did I! I watched the show and it was awful!”
Cat appeared to take the lighthearted jab in her stride, bursting into laughter at the comment.
Discussing Piers’ departure, Richard claimed that he had been planning a two-month break from the show before ultimately quitting in March.
The Richard and Judy star revealed to his co-host, Charlotte Hawkins, that he was originally booked to present GMB in April and May – but that this was extended following Piers’ exit.
Richard added: “I was due to come back in April and May because Piers was going to America, so I would’ve been sitting alongside you quite a lot then, but all that went west.
“So here I am.”
He has also previously stated that he would not be against permanently replacing Piers on the show.
Richard said: “If the phone went and they said, ‘would you come in and talk?’, of course I would talk to them. It would be bonkers not to.”
