Martin Lewis stops GMB to show off weird ear trick leaving Susanna Reid stunned
| Last updated
Martin Lewis left his Good Morning Britain co-presenter Susanna Reid taken aback after showing off a weird trick he can do with his ears.
The Good Morning Britain team were in high spirits today, having scooped an award at last night’s TRIC Awards.
Richard Arnold filled viewers in on what went down at the awards, and shared that he had been present on the red carpet where he’d asked stars for the ‘one trick that had helped them get to where they are now’.
And it seems as though Lewis had been waiting for that moment for a long time - appearing to be a bit put out, he said: “I was there on a different table. I did an interview with GMB and nobody asked me what my one trick was.”
Reid then asked: “What’s your one trick?”
“I can raise my eyebrows,” Lewis replied, before showing that he can, indeed, raise his brows at will. Not super impressive, and Arnold wasn’t a fan; in fact, he branded it ‘slightly unsettling’ - fair enough.
Undeterred, Lewis went on: “I can play tunes on my ears too, but I’ll do it after the show.”
A surprised Reid asked: “Sorry, you can play tunes on your ears? How do you play a tune on your ear?”
Lewis insisted he’d demonstrate when the show had finished, but Reid stuck to her guns, adding: “That’s not what television is, television is where you show it on the show!”
In response to such heavy pressure, Lewis crumbled and said: “Alright I’ll try and do 'Happy Birthday'.” But then warned: “I’m not warmed up and this may go wrong.”
The Money Saving Expert then whipped out his ear piece and repeatedly pressed down on his ears to the tune of 'Happy Birthday'.
I’m not sure what I was expecting really, but fair play - he did what he set out to do.
Reid looked baffled by the whole thing but managed to pull herself together to drop a little dig - sarcastically saying: “Wow, I mean that is why we win awards. That’s why we have special recognition. I bet you can’t do that Nigel Farage.”
After Arnold suggested viewers give it a go themselves at home, Lewis warned: “Don’t do it too hard, you can damage your eardrum.”
And Reid quipped: “Or perhaps don’t do it all.” I quite enjoyed it, to be fair.
