Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway suffers HUGE on-air blunder as she calls Nick Jonas the wrong name

Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway made an embarrassing gaffe live on-air after getting the star guest’s name wrong.

The 50-year-old appeared to come over tongue-tied when introducing Hollywood hunk, Nick Jonas – because in an unfortunate slip of the tongue, Kate called him by the wrong name.

But what makes it even worse is that no-one bothered to correct her mistake!

And nobody corrected her! (PA)

Appearing on the show to talk about his new movie,  Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Kate introduced the singer-turned-actor as ‘Nick Jones’.

She said: ‘As you can see, Nick Jones is with us now.’

While it was clear co-host Ben Shephard realised her mistake as he started grinning to the camera, he opted against correcting her.

And her blunder didn’t go unnoticed by viewers at home either, who quickly took to Twitter to call Kate out on her mistake.

‘Who is Nick JONES Kate? #Gmb’, said one amused viewer. While another added, ‘The woman on @GMB just called @nickjonas Nick Jones, ew cringe.’

One disgruntled viewer said: ‘Stupid Woman ! She didn’t deserve to talk to him ! X’

Another moaned: ‘Sounded like @kategarraway just called @nickjonas ‘Nick Jones’ on @GMB. Big no no. If people call me Mrs Jones they are quickly corrected. #getitright’

Kate has stayed silent on the matter, although perhaps GMB have yet to fill her in on her mistake.

Nick, meanwhile appeared happy to continue on with the interview despite being given his new moniker.

Talking of starring alongside Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan in the movie reboot, he admitted he found it ‘incredibly intimidating’.

‘This cast as a whole [was so] incredibly intimidating just on the scale of the superstars you’re talking about but also the comedic angle and their brilliance in that department,’ he said.

‘It was very hard to keep a straight face, and I’m actually surprised any of my scenes actually ended up in the movie at all because I was just cracking up all the time.’

Hopefully he saw the funny side in Kate’s mistake then…
