GOOD Morning Britain's Richard Madeley couldn't believe his ears today when a guest screamed "stop sending d**k shaped rockets into space!"
The live gaffe from an Insulate Britain protestor stunned Richard, 65, who replied back: "Did you just say that?"
Eco warrior Tracey Mallaghan had accused Richard of ignoring the reasons the group are blocking major motorways, saying the Government were not doing enough to stop climate change.
The exchange left some viewers laughing after Richard addressed her as "darling" and she repeatedly called him "sweetheart".
But they soon hailed the interview "TV Gold" when Tracey roared: "stop sending d**k shaped rockets into space!"
One wrote on Twitter: "Absolute crackpot but TV comedy gold. Insulate Britain you could really do with a new spokesperson 😂 #GMB"
Another declared: "That's made my day … “stop sending rockets into space the shape of dicks” 😂 #GMB"
And one more tweeted: "#GMB Damn what a hot mess…Rockets shaped like d**ks? 2 perfectly composed journalists, and 1 perfectly insane activist. This is what I live to wake up too 😂 😂 😂
Tracey appeared nervous as she defended Insulate Britain targeting the M25 today – leaving drivers traveling at speeds of 20 miles an hour.
She became more irate and as Richard tried to calm her down, he addressed her as 'darling'.
He quickly apologised and said: "I'm so sorry I retract that. It's just showbiz speak."
During another tense exchanged the eco-warrior, who said she didn't know if her house was insulated because she is on benefits and living under a housing association, screamed back at Madeley: "You called me Darling! You're trying to distract me!
"My daughter faces a 2 degree world, war, famine, drought, and you want to focus on the individual. You refuse to ask the right questions, I've been asked the same questions for six weeks and you should be focusing on the why."
"We need to come together, the only chance we have is if we believe in the British spirit and get on the same page."
When Richard's co-host Ranvir interrupted Tracey to ask if the group cared whether sick people die in ambulances during traffic pile ups, she replied: "I am cry like I have done many days.
"I hate disrupting people's lives but our children face a 2 degree world.
"Our Government is going to break a legal agreement to keep us under a 2 degree world.
"The facts are our Government can find many to fund things. If you're in the Westminster bubble you're fine."
Richard gave up and later apologised to viewers again.
He said after GMB returned from the break: "We didn't get any answers out of her, just slogans and I'm sorry about that.
"You could see what was happening every time you asked the key question 'what if someone dies' she came in with a question of her own.
"I'm sorry we didn't do a better job for you we did our best but she simply wasn't prepared to engage in a proper interview."
