    Jools Holland failed to show up to his scheduled Good Morning Britain interview on Thursday.

    Jools, 63, was set to appear on the morning programme alongside Jim Moir to promote their podcast, Jools And Jim’s Joyride, however only Jim, 62, appeared via videolink, much to the surprise of presenters Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid.

    Addressing Jools’ no-show, Ben, 46, quipped to Jim: ‘It’s lovely to see you this morning Jim, thanks for actually bothering to get up to talk to us.’

    Susanna, 50, joked to Jim: ‘Do you wanna give him a quick text? Cause we’ve got a Zoom invite for him if he wants to accept it.’

    Ben added: ‘Get your phone out and text him and say “Jools we’re on air”.’

    Noting that his phone was nowhere in sight, Jim awkwardly told the hosts: ‘I could do, but my phone’s nowhere near me.’

    Susanna then said: ‘Or we could just tell him on national television.’

    It was then that Ben turned his attention to Jim, telling the comedian: ‘Well let’s start with you then. It’s lovely to see you this morning Jim, thanks for actually bothering to get up to talk to us.’

    Jim hilariously responded: ‘You nearly didn’t get me.’

    As Susanna wrapped up the interview, she told viewers: ‘We hope that Jools is alright this morning.’

    Positive that his friend and co-host was just sleeping, Jim reassured Susanna: ‘I think he’s firmly in slumber.’

    Available to listen to online, Jools and Jim’s Joyride is a travel-themed podcast that sees the TV icons interview fellow stars while taking to the road.

    It’s not the first awkward exchange Susanna has overseen this week.

    During Monday’s episode, viewers were left cringing over her and 65-year-old Richard Madeley’s ‘excruciating’ interview with a family of nudists.

    With nudism on the rise, the co-hosts were tasked with finding out why it’s so appealing to bare all, but the 11-minute segment didn’t find favour with viewers.

    Speaking from a field in Doncaster, Carol and Colin Wood along with their daughter Angie explained why they preferred life without clothes.

    Covering their naked bodies by kneeling behind straw bales, Colin explained: ‘It’s enjoyable, it’s convenient, you’re not struggling to change your clothes in a small tent, and people trust each other.

    ‘I’ve had many ladies go with me in a Land Rover across the field and there’s a trust that isn’t there in other societies.’

    Asked by Richard if they ever feel judged, Colin insisted: ‘No, not at all. By the time you’ve taken to naturism you’re happy with your body.

    ‘The young people are frightened and keep covered up, and you get older and you’re body goes out of shape, you’re not bothered anymore.’

    Viewers took to Twitter to voice their opinions of the 11-minute segment, with many branding it ‘cringe’ and ‘awkward.’

    One person wrote: ‘The nudists on #goodmorningbritain were too funny. They couldn’t keep a straight face.’

    ‘omg it was so funny & cringy seeing these nudists so early on me telly’ tweeted someone else, while another insisted: ‘Watching you interview those 3 nudists is EXCRUCIATING!’

    ‘@GMB really scraping the barrel with news. A proper cringy interview about nudists! Poor form from @susannareid100,’ blasted one viewer.

    ‘How torturous is GMB this morning? This nudist interview has to be the worst ever shown on live TV. How not to do a live interview,’ tweeted another.

    Someone else asked: ‘Am I the only one who thought the nudist interview was like pulling teeth and beyond awkward ? #GMB.’

    Oh dear! Viewers took to Twitter to voice their opinions of the 11-minute segment, with many branding it'cringe' and'awkward'
