During Bonnie’s interview, the daytime show displayed a number of photos from throughout her career… and, indeed, from someone else’s.
Yes, before the interview began, presenter Susanna Reid declared: “We’ve got a picture of Bonnie Tyler up here that Bonnie Tyler has just pointed out is not Bonnie Tyler.”
“That’s not me!” Bonnie added. “It looks like me… when I was young. But [it’s not].”
Fortunately, Bonnie definitely saw the funny side of the gaffe, as did Susanna and co-host Piers Morgan, who were quick to pin the mistake on their director.
“The whole reason that we come over and sit in front of all these screens, is because our director wants these beautiful photographs,” Susanna explained.
Piers added: “It turns out there’s pretty pictures up there that actually aren’t the guests. That’s awkward. Who is that random woman?”
At the end of the interview, Piers got his answer, with researchers discovering the woman in question was a Bonnie Tyler tribute act – and apparently a very convincing one, at that.
Over the weekend, Piers and Susanna made headlines when they gave a joint interview, revealing that when they began working together they didn’t exactly get off to the best of starts.
Piers’ wife later voiced her disdain when a quote from the controversial broadcaster was used on Event magazine’s front cover, in which he suggested he and Susanna would be “at it like stoats in a sack” if they were single (though we should stress Piers later specified he meant “with other people”.
