Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway accidentally told viewers that she and Adil Ray would be interviewing the late Nikki Grahame this morning.
Nikki tragically died on Friday at the age of 38 after a battle with anorexia that had lasted over three decades.
Kate and Adil were joined today by her Big Brother co-star Pete Bennett, Kate mistakenly saying they'd be speaking with Nikki herself.
The show opened with pictures of Prince Philip instead of Nikki, Adil noting: "Good morning, erm… a bit of a mix-up with the pictures there. We will be paying tribute to Nikki Grahame as well later."
Kate added: "We will be talking to Nikki Grahame as well", before quickly correcting herself: "And we've got one of her best friends Pete…"
Devastated Pete told the show: "She was lonely, you know what I mean? She was stuck in North London all by herself.
"I'm lucky enough to be in Brighton where there's the beach and lots of people around.
"She was stuck there all by herself, she hasn't got her coping mechanisms anymore like her friends or a routine, what's there to look forward to?"
During yesterday's show, Kate spoke about the "overwhelming" first weekend since her husband Derek Draper returned from the hospital.
Derek was hospitalised back in March last year with Covid and placed in a coma.

The former political lobbyist was returned home via ambulance last week and is receiving round the clock care at the property, which Kate adapted for his needs.
"It was a medical reason for reason for coming home, as well as our desire and his desire too, to try and encourage a more normal environment to stimulate his recovery, cognition, and consciousness better," Kate explained.
