'This Morning' 25th Anniversary: Keith Lemon Left Shocked As Man Tries To Jump On Floating Weather Map During Live Show (VIDEO)

'This Morning' wouldn't be 'This Morning' without some of its hilarious live mishaps, so it seemed fitting that one happened during its 25th anniversary show on Thursday, which was broadcast from the show's original home in Liverpool's Albert Docks.

Hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were left in fits of laughter after a man attempted (and failed) to jump onto the iconic floating weather map, which was brought back by Keith Lemon especially for the birthday show.

It turns out that the man in question was trying to propose to his girlfriend, but his inability to climb onto the map after throwing himself in the water, meant it was left to Keith to later explain to viewers what had happened.

"Earlier a man jumped in and I've got to apologise for that and he is dead now, he died," the comic joked.

"He didn't really die but he just wanted to say that he wants to marry his wife so hopefully she'll say yes," (sic).
