Josie Gibson found herself in the midst of a hilarious on-air blunder when she didn't realise she was live on Good Morning Britain.
On Thursday morning's instalment of the ITV show, Andi Peters revealed that 36 year old Josie, who was on location in Crystal Palace, would be letting viewers know about their big competition.
However, when the camera panned to Josie, who is tipped for a "leading role" on This Morning, there was a long silence as she didn't realise it was time for her segment.
Andi prompted her to begin back in the studio, causing Josie to place her hand over her microphone to check if it was working before hesitatingly discussing the competition.
She then quickly stopped to ask, "are we live?" to which Andi told her she was.
Josie continued with her segment while laughing, as she later admitted: "I don't know what happened there!"
The rest of her competition segment went off without a hitch.
Despite the blunder, Josie has impressed fans with her hosting duties over recent weeks when she stepped in for Holly Willoughby on This Morning when she fell ill.
Josie once again took the reins of the hit ITV show alongside Vernon Kay last week with an ITV source saying the channel is "investing a lot of time in Josie's development".
The source exclusively told OK!: "ITV have been investing a lot of time in Josie's development. They see her as a real star of the future.
"Just like Alison Hammond before her, they think she has the personality and talent to take on a more leading role on the show.
"She really impressed when she stepped in for Holly at the last minute recently, and the positive audience reaction gave them real food for thought.
"Everyone was thrilled with her chemistry with Vernon, and there's definitely talk of them doing more shows together when the main presenters are on holiday."
Opening up about the experience and the love she'd received from viewers, Josie recently revealed: "I made mistakes on air and sometimes my timing was off, but the viewers were so understanding."
