During the breakfast show, the presenter had been chatting to Vinnie Jones when he said: "We talked a lot about Prince Philip after the death of the Queen." He then noted his mistake shortly afterwards, saying: "Can I just say something, I think I may have accidentally announced the death of the Queen. I meant Prince Philip of course."

His co-star, Susanna Reid, was quick to reassure him, saying: "I think people understood exactly what you meant." Although it was clear that Alastair misspoke, many took to Twitter to discuss the gaff, with one writing: "Alastair Campbell just accidentally announced the death of the Queen on #GMB," while another added: "@campbellclaret accidentally announces death of the queen! (He did apologise) #PrincePhilip #queen #gmb. Queen calls up GMB to confirm she is still very much alive!"

Alastair and Susanna were speaking to Vinnie about dealing with grief when the slip-up occurred, who was explaining about why he was sharing his experience after losing his wife Tanya. He said: "Sometimes I think we need to put our head up and help others... It was time for me to explain to other people, and especially lads, to get help. It's not a shameful thing.
Alastair apologised for the mishap
"People said to me, 'Keep swinging,' and I have kept swinging. I've tried to keep the weight of it. The weight of grief is just massive... and you're fighting it off every day. I've worked a lot with charities in the last two years now, and I want people to know that they can get help."
