Gogglebox: Best moments and shows episode
Nick Grimshaw and niece Liv watched a clip of This Morning hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary dressed in rave gear and dancing as they presented the ITV show.
As the This Morning cameras went backstage to show the crew, Liv exclaimed: “Is that all the people that work at This Morning? I thought there would more?”
“Oh everyone’s been fired, haven’t they?!” Nick cut in, mocking Phillip Schofield’s recent exit from ITV.
He also joked: “Normally they’re being shouted at and today they’re allowed to have a dance!”
The pair weren’t the only ones to joke about Phillip’s departure with Katherine Ryan remarking: They’re like, ‘See, what toxic work environment? Look how non toxic we are!'”
Roman Kemp also chipped in as he sang along to the This Morning theme tune: “Nothing is wrong, nothing is wrong, with our show….”
The jokes came as ITV bosses responded to claims This Morning was a “toxic” work environment.
Speaking in front of MPs at a committee held by Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), Carolyn said it was “disappointing” and “deeply distressing to hear” former employees called ITV a “terrible place to work”.
She added they “do not recognise” toxicity at ITV and the “vast majority” at the broadcaster as “extremely engaged and very motivated”.
