'This Morning' Outdoor Cookery Segment Interrupted By A Sweaty David Cameron On His Morning Jog

When you’re presenting a TV show outdoors in the sunshine, the last thing you expect to happen is for the Prime Minister to run past, but that’s exactly what happened to Amanda Holden and Gok Wan on ‘This Morning’.


The pair were interrupted by David Cameron as they presented a cookery segment from outside the show’s studios on London's Southbank on Monday (6 July) when the PM ran past on his morning jog.

Amanda couldn’t quite believe her eyes as she spotted Dave working up a sweat in his gym kit, exclaiming: "David Cameron is jogging on the Southbank!"

"Where is he? He's just gone past," she continued, throwing Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley’s cookery slot into chaos.

"David, we've got smoothies," Gok shouted after him. "Do you want a smoothie, David?"

"I can't believe that. Chase after him," she instructed her co-presenter.

Mandy later added that she was surprised at Cameron’s sporting prowess, saying: "He's in quite good nick can I say?"

Gok had joined her to present the ITV daytime show as he stepped in for regular host Phillip Schofield.

The silver fox was absent owing to the fact he was filming with usual co-presenter Holly Willoughby in preparation for her return to work in September.

The star is currently on maternity leave after giving birth to her third child, Chester, last year.

Explaining to viewers who wondered where he was, Phil tweeted: “Not on @itvthismorning today. Spending the day with @hollywills shooting new opening titles, promos and doing i/v's for her Sept return.”

Amanda has been filling in for Holly since last October, with Christine Bleakley also acting as her deputy.
