Watch: Kate Garraway scolds Good Morning Britain presenter after rude joke

Kate Garraway gave a light-hearted telling off to Good Morning Britain correspondent Sean Fletcher this morning after he made a rude bird pun on-air.

Garraway and her co-host Adil Ray had been indulging in fowl wordplay throughout the broadcast and gave sports presenter Fletcher the opportunity to join in.

"I think we've done all of the bird double entendres, haven't we?" said Fletcher, with Ray then encouraging him to chip in with his own.

Fletcher quipped that "I did see a pair of tits in my garden the other day", to groans from both Garraway and Ray as he clarified that he meant blue tits.

Garraway chided her fellow presenter, saying: "Oh Sean, it's beneath you... it's so beneath you."

She and Ray then swiftly moved on, having been focusing heavily on bird jokes while talking about the outcome of the RSPB's annual Big Garden Birdwatch event.

The house sparrow was crowned the most popular garden bird for the 19th year in a row, followed by the blue tit, starling, woodpigeon and blackbird in the top five.

More than 11 and a half million birds were counted across the entire initiative, with almost 700,000 people taking part.
