Kate Garraway was told to 'shut up' during an awkward exchange on Thursday's Good Morning Britain when the ITV show was hit with breaking news.

The GMB star turned to apologise to her co-host as she interrupted him on news regarding pop sensation Britney Spears. Things quickly took an awkward turn and she was left red-faced, as she and Richard Madeley read out the latest headlines.

Richard Arnold, who regularly appears on the ITV show, was on hand to discuss the latest news regarding the musician reports the Daily Star, when Kate butted in with a question which left her being forced to apologise.

Richard said: “Breaking Britney news from the gurus at TMZ. They are reporting in the last few hours that Britney has settled her divorce with ex Sam Asghari, almost a year after he pulled the plug on their marriage by filing for divorce."

He added: "The pair are said to filed a stipulated judgment," however he was soon cut-off by Kate. Interrupting him, she wanted to know more and quipped: “What’s that mean?”

Sam Asghari officially filed for divorce from pop sensation Britney last year, after the pair were married for 14 months. The former couple appeared loved-up since embarking on their relationship in 2017.

He popped the question to the hitmaker in 2021, and they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Britney's California home on June 9, 2022. However after they were said to have 'grown apart' Sam lodged a divorce application in August 2023.

Sam only had good things to say about his former flame. He revealed: "It was a blessing to be able to share life with someone for a long time. And people grow apart and people move on."
