KATE Garraway left Good Morning Britain fans stunned today when she asked Richard Madeley, “what’s it like to be a dick?”
Kate, 43, couldn’t resist making the gag as Richard 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.”
