Martin Kenyon, 91, was in the middle of being interviewed live on the ITV morning show when the hilarious moment happened. Appearing via video link from his home in Stockwell, South London, Mr Kenyon was two minutes into his interview before he revealed he had no idea who he was speaking to.

"Now, who are you?" the pensioner asked, which caused Piers' co-host Susanna to erupt into a fit of laughter.
