What happened to Michael Barrymore on This Morning Interview? The nineties star caused chaos in his recent interview.
Barrymore is a legendary comedian and television personality who is known for presenting game shows and light entertainment programs on British television in the 1990s.
He hosted several famous shows, including My Kind of People, My Kind of Music, Kids Say the funniest things, Strike It Lucky, and his own show Barrymore.
He was once one of the most popular entertainers in the UK. From the middle of the 1980s to the late 1990s, Barrymore was one of the highest-paid television performers.
During his heyday, he was repeatedly chosen as the UK’s favorite television star.
The veteran television presenter recently came to the media limelight following a chaotic incident at his This Morning appearance.
What Happened To Michael Barrymore On This Morning? Scandal Explained
It was supposed to be a promotional interview for his new play, but Michael Barrymore turned it into chaos of his own.
The nineties TV star, who has been embroiled in a scandal involving the death of a man in his pool, appeared on This Morning on Thursday (3 August) and left viewers stunned by his erratic behavior.
He slurred his words, interrupted the hosts, and made jokes about his legal troubles. On top of that, he claimed he did not know who the hosts were – Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle.
When Michael made a hilarious outburst and threatened to stop the show during a tumultuous appearance, the two had their hands full.
Since Holly Willoughby’s longtime co-star Phillip Schofield was fired earlier this year, the two have been filling in for her while she is away for the summer.
Josie and Craig had to cut to the commercial break as a laughing Michael said, “I assumed it was Alison and the other person; who are you two?!”
“Who are they?” All of the cameramen’s names are familiar to me, but I don’t know you two,” Barrymore went on.
Michael subsequently imitated Craig’s Irish accent, and Josie managed to snap it, saying, “It’s my turn now!”
Michael was more composed after the break but insisted that he had never met Craig. He further asserted that the entire purpose of his humorous rants was to amuse the audience.
Viewers Were Shocked: More On Michael Barrymore Controversy
Michael’s antics astounded viewers, who reacted furiously on Twitter, with one user writing: “This is agonizing. Why is Barrymore treating Craig, Josie, and the show as a whole in such an offensive manner?”
Others said, “Hope Josie and Craig are getting a bonus for this discomfort.”
Many other audiences took to social media to express their shock and dismay at Barrymore’s interview, calling it a “car crash,” a “disgrace,” and a “disaster.”
Some speculated that he was drunk or on drugs, while others felt sorry for him and hoped he would get help.
Barrymore did not address the backlash but posted a video on TikTok thanking This Morning for having him and showing him chatting with production staff and other guests.
He said he had a “wonderful time” and that he was looking forward to his play. He also asked his followers to “be kind” and “stay positive.”
As stated above, from the 1980s to the early 2000s, Michael was one of the most well-liked TV hosts in the United Kingdom.
But he was fired from ITV after the terrible drowning death of Stuart Lubbock, 31, in the star’s Essex home’s swimming pool in 2001.
