Craig Doyle enjoyed some hump day drinks, which led to an unwelcome hangover on today’s This Morning.

The 52-year-old enjoyed a night out with his rugby pals, and as a result, he was feeling a little fragile on the ITV daytime show.

Luckily for Craig – who also works as a sports presenter on BT Sports – he had co-host and human sunshine Josie Gibson to support him through the two-and-a-half-hour show.

‘I am joined by the one and only Craig Doyle, who’s not quite himself today.’ announced Josie, 38, in the intro to the show.

She placed a sympathetic hand on his shoulder as Craig took a deep breath.

‘How are you doing cherrub?’ she asked.

Craig originally tried to deflect from this hangover telling Josie, ‘I think it might be a cold or some allergies.’

However, he quickly decided that honesty is the best policy and added, ‘Or maybe it’s because the rugby guys and girls were out last night.

‘We were out for the launch of the rugby season.’

He then revealed that his friends may have tried to purposely attempt to sabotage his working day.

‘If you tell rugby players, boxers, and football players that you’re going to be on This Morning at 10’o clock the next morning, do you know what they do? They lock you into a corner of a bar and they try to destroy your next day.

‘They’ve done an okay job,’ he admitted.

Perhaps it was all worth it though as Craig informed viewers that it was a good night.

A supportive Josie offered Craig a somewhat compliment telling him that he was looking and sounded alright. Craig gracefully gave credit to the hair and makeup team.

He concluded by assuring the audience at home that he was feeling ‘strong’ and could make it through their busy show, which included guests Michael Barrymore and Judi Love.

Later, Josie was informed she was a topic of discussion during the evening out much to her delight.

‘They love you,’ Craig revealed. Josie immediately responded, ‘Like really love me?’

Perhaps, a blind date is on the cards in the future!

As the show progressed, Josie commented that Craig was ‘getting there’. Maybe he should stick to Friday drinks next week.

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
