‘This Morning’ has played host to some unusual items over the years, but even the most seasoned viewers were left in disbelief when they were introduced to a human puppy on Tuesday’s (24 May) show.
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby welcomed one of the stars of Channel 4’s one-off documentary ‘The Secret Life Of The Human Pups’ to the sofa, as he explained his double life living as a dog.
Theatre sound technician Tom Peters, who appeared on the ITV daytime show in a full latex dog outfit alongside his former fianceé Rachel, left viewers speechless as he revealed dresses up as a pup called Spot as a form of escapism.
He was seen crawling on all-fours and eating a bone, admitting he sometimes sleeps in a cage.
Tom was also keen to dispel the myth the his actions were sexually motivated, adding that he hoped his appearance would help break down taboos about ‘puppy play’.

Others, meanwhile, had a more humourous take on things:
'This Morning' airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV, while 'The Secret Life of the Human Pups’ airs on Wednesday (25 May) at 9pm on Channel 4.
