Dermot O’Leary abruptly walks off This Morning for awkward emergency toilet dash
Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday
This Morning host Dermot O'Leary left co-star Alison Hammond baffled as he suddenly legged it out of the studio, not waiting for the show to go to a break.
The pair had just been speaking to a juicing expert about making healthy juices during lockdown, and had been given a selection of different juices to try.
Dermot and Alison were seen trying green and orange coloured juices, as well as ginger show, which expert Jason claimed was like having a shot of espresso.
As the segment came to an end, the presenter then turned to the camera and said: "Let's go to the break as quickly as possible so me and Alison can go to the toilet," as she giggled at the camera.
He then introduced Emma Kenny and said: "Coming up after this," before suddenly getting up out of his chair and legging it out of the studio as the camera panned out.
Dermot quickly fled the studio as the show went to a break, leaving viewers baffled with the abrupt departure.
However, Dermot was seen back on air with Alison as the show returned from the ad break, as the pair moved on to doing phone ins from members of the public.

Just before his emergency toilet dash, Dermot admitted to feeling emotional after seeing his mum and dad over a video call from Ireland.
The pair had been talking about Dermot's family history being rejected from Who Do You Think You Are for not being dramatic enough for the show, and got his parents involved.
His mum and dad also spoke to Alison about what he was like a little boy, saying he was always "loving and mischievous", and loved entertaining from a young age.
Dermot signed off the chat by telling his parents to stay safe and to get the vaccine as soon as possible, before telling Alison how lovely his parents are.
After the goodbye, Dermot then said: "How am I supposed to do the menu now?"
Alison asked him: "Don't get emotional. Do you want me to start it?" and Dermot said yes.
