GMB viewers all make the same joke about Richard Madeley – that he’s the real Alan Partridge.
TV legend Richard, 65, is guest co-host on the ITV breakfast show this week.
But his bizarre, often random comments and descriptions of news and their people have once again led viewers to compare him to Steve Coogan’s fictional cartoon character.
What happened to Richard Madeley at GMB today?
On today’s edition of the show (Tuesday, June 8), Richard reunited with Dr. Hilary Jones on coronavirus restrictions.
After Sir Patrick Vallance and Dr. Chris Whitty had delivered some sobering news of the surge in cases, co-host Susanna Reid asked, “Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Valance – what did you call them Richard?”

“The Chuckle Brothers!” he answered.
After Susanna added her thoughts, Richard turned to Dr. Hilary and sniffed, “You will agree with me, won’t you?”
“I am,” the doc replied before outlining his arguments.
And it wasn’t long before viewers used Twitter again to compare Richard and Alan.

A fourth wasn’t so jovial, however.

“Anyway, #GMB has long since passed its greeting and should be closed. It’s trash TV. “
