Richard Madeley complimenting a Scottish person for being articulate is today’s funniest facepalm

You’ll already be aware of Richard Madeley’s particular style of presenting, and how often he ends up being compared with Alan Partridge.

So you might already have an inkling of what to expect in this clip from ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Monday.

Thoughts and prayers going out to Susanna Reid at this difficult time.
