Barry Humphries had both Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond in hysterics as he joined them on This Morning. After shuffling on to the sofa with tissues still tucked into his collar by the make-up team, he soon had the pair lost for words. Alison was unable to stop laughing while Dermot was left with his head in his hands after Barry confused him with Phillip Schofield.
This Morning viewers know Phillip revealed he was gay during an interview with Holly Willoughby in early 2020.
But appearing on Friday’s episode, Barry pretended he couldn’t remember who Phillip was as he commended Dermot on his “bravery”.
Barry remarked: “I want to congratulate you, seriously, on your courage.”
Alison burst out laughing as he continued: “Last year, no, no, when he came out and told us about his sexuality.”
Dermot hung his head as Alison shrieked once more but Barry was not fazed by their reactions.
He continued: “No, no, because I think a lot of people respected you for that.”
Dermot played along as he replied: “Thank you, I’ll pass that along to the gentleman who is here from Monday to Thursday.”
Alison was still unable to speak as Barry asked: “You’ll what?”
Dermot answered: “Don’t worry, your memory is still great,” as Barry looked around confused.
Barry continued: “Sorry, have I…,” as Dermot told him: “Thank you for your kind comments.”
The guest added: “No, you’re bravery was amazing. And by the way, we’re all in show business.”
Those tuning into the interview at home were quick to take to Twitter to share how much they loved Barry.
Amelia Violet asked: “Is Barry Humphries taking this p**s of did he actually mistake Dermot for Phil #thismorning.”
Jane Aird added: “As if he thinks Dermot is Phil … all for the laughs folks #ThisMorning.”
