FUN-LOVING Kate Garraway got well and truly into the festive spirit on today's Good Morning Britain as she piled her hair into a bauble-studded Christmas tree style and served up prosecco at 8am.
The ITV host, always game for a laugh, transformed her sleek straight bob into a back-combed, volume-packed tower dressed with red tinsel in the space of 45 seconds, with the help of the show's styling team.
Earlier in the episode, Kate had been channelling the Christmas look in a smart red blazer and matching blouse.
Yet she took her winter look to the next level with her OTT barnet which even featured glitzy gold decorations pinned in between the layers.
The eye-popping look has swiftly become a favourite for Instagram bloggers and YouTubers this season, swiftly followed by creamy marshmallow locks.
To make sure the look stayed throughout the rest of the show, the GMB beauty team had fixed it with the help of a chin strap.
Kate's cheeky co-host Ben Shephard suggested it was serving to reduce her double "chins" but Kate, 50, confessed she was struggling to breathe.
Yet that didn't seem to stop her playing barmaid – thanks to Andi Peters.
Their co-host, who fronts the GMB competition segments, gave her a brown handbag complete with a prosecco-pouring tap on the side.
After treating her to a glass, mum-of-two then leaped from her seat to treat fellow newsreader Charlotte Hawkins a tipple – all before the clock struck 8.30am.
Earlier in the show Ben, 43, had come under fire from Celebs Go Dating host Lady Nadia Essex for his festive tradition of last-minute shopping.
The dating expert branded him "so lazy" as he admitted men, when hunting for Christmas gifts, worked "better under pressure."
Their fiery war of words came shortly after Ben confessed he had bought wife Annie an "ever-lasting lightbulb" while co-host Charlotte would be hiding nasal hair trimmers in her husband's stocking.
Throwing her hands into the air in dramatic fashion Nadia raged: "It's just lazy!"
She continued: "Nobody is so busy they have to wait until Christmas Eve to buy the one they profess to love a present that's one of the last things on the shelf."
