KATE Garraway left Good Morning Britain fans stunned today when she asked Richard Madeley, "what's it like to be a dick?"
Kate, 52, couldn't resist making the gag as Richard, 63. told viewers he takes no notice of the rude play on his name – despite new UKIP leader, Richard Braine, moaning about people calling him dickbrain.
Richard said: "Well listen, I'm called Richard which is often shortened to Dick. And many of you call me Dick. But at least I'm not called, well I am sometimes I am, called, Dick Brain.
"Mr Braine, the moment you ask people not to call you dickbrain they'll call you dickbrain.
And Kate replied: "What is it like to be a Dick? Is it tough in life?"
Continuing the comedy moment, Richard said: "Well basically after a lifetime of being a Dick, you adapt to it. You know, my own daughter calls me Dickie, which is a softening, and you adapt to it."
He added: "So Mr Braine, I don't know how old you are Mr Braine but really, get over yourself. Really, it's just a joke. Grow up man."
Kate ticked viewers more after she told Richard: "Think about the gags!"
One fan said: "@GMB talking about Dick. Did @kategarraway really say she liked the gag? 😂 #GMB"
Another wrote on Twitter: "#gmb this morning @kategarraway (talking about "Dicks") with @graceblakeley says "Think about the gags!" #greatchoiceofwords"
Their exchange comes after UKIP’s new boss Richard had a ding-dong with George Osborne after the former Chancellor took the mickey out of his name.
Mr Osborne tweeted after Mr Braine won the leadership race: “The new leader of Ukip is called Mr Dick Braine – really.”
The anti-EU party chief said yesterday: “I’m getting a bit fed up with all this dickbraine stuff. It’s time to change my name to stop the bullying.”
He also had a dig at Mr Osborne, now the editor of the London Evening Standard, who changed his name from Gideon when he was a teenager.
Mr Braine said: “Are my prospects better if I change my christian name to Gideon or George? What do you think George Osborne?”
