Richard Madeley asks GMB fans' advice as Judy sleeps in spare room

Good Morning Britain host Richard Madeley asked viewers for help on Monday as he explained his wife Judy Finnigan is sleeping in the spare room.

Richard and Judy are one of the strongest couples in showbiz and are still going strong. They have been married for 35 years, but are now sleeping separately due to a mice problem in their home.

Richard fronted the daytime show alongside Charlotte Hawkins on Monday, where they were joined by a number of guests to discuss topical news and issues.

One segment saw the 66-year-old turn to viewers at home for their advice on how to get rid of mice, and people responded in droves. Richard said: "I'd like to thank everybody who's been ringing in with tips. I was saying earlier that Judy is now sleeping in the spare room.

"We've got this mouse in the bedroom now, it comes out from under the bed at about 11 o'clock every night, virtually to the second. I've set traps, I've got poison, peanut butter [viewers] are saying, but I've tried that."

A number of GMB fans shared their tips on Twitter. Morganna said: "When we had loads we would put food in a deep bucket with a ramp up to it they would fall in but couldn’t get back out".

Roslyn said: "Humane trap with chocolate", while Sue said: "Buy a cat! They're also very cuddly and will become part of your family x". Margaret said: "Feel your pain, caught one in my house on Saturday".
