Good Morning Britain's Richard Madeley asks for help as Judy in spare room due to mice

An ITV presenter has returned to Good Morning Britain, but was left asking for viewers' help. Richard Madeley was back on the ITV news programme this morning (Monday, May 1) alongside Charlotte Hawkins, who replaced Susanna Reid for the Bank Holiday show.

The episode saw the pair discussing topical news and issues with several guests, as well as enjoying some entertainment news and general chatter. However, Richard then turned to viewers at home for advice after revealing his wife Judy Finnigan was having to sleep in their spare room due to mice.

The 66 year old didn't have to wait long for responses, as fans were quick to call in, reports Manchester Evening News. He said: "Can I just thank everyone that's ringing in for tips on how to get rid of the mice we've got in our house.

Are you planning an event for King Charles III's coronation? Let us know

"I was saying earlier that Judy is now sleeping in the spare room because we've got this mouse in the bedroom now and it comes out from under the bed at about 11 o'clock every night on the dot, virtually to the second. I've set traps, I've got poison boxes out, I have tried peanut butter and it's not drawn it out."

Charlotte then spoke of how Lindsay Hoyle, the Speaker of the House of Commons, has brought his cat Attlee to work to ensure the parliamentary estate is clear of mice ahead of the royal reception on Tuesday. Richard then joked: "Mr Speaker, can I borrow Attlee for the day, please?"

Attlee, the cat, carried out a mouse check ahead of the royal reception in Westminster on Tuesday before the King’s coronation this weekend, while Boris, the parrot, has been "shouting quite loudly". Sir Lindsay stated: "We’ve been trying to get him to sing God Save The King.

"He’s been listening very carefully. Attlee has been going round to check there aren’t any mice around and there were absolutely none."
