Alastair Campbell joined Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain today as a co-host of the ITV show. However, the writer and Tony Blair’s former spokesman apologised to viewers after admitting he had broken social distancing rules and had mistakenly called a guest by the wrong name. 

Reid and Campbell welcomed Christine Brett and Dr Deepti Gurdasani onto today’s show to discuss the possibility of Boris Johnson allowing people to hug one another when restrictions ease next week. 

After the discussion, the temporary GMB host revealed he had recently broken Covid rules.

Campbell began: “I must confess Susanna, I lapsed the other day I just forgot.”

“Call the police,” Reid joked and Campbell replied: “Would you call the police or do you think [GMB guest] Nadine Dorries might call the police later?”

“What did you do?” Reid asked. “Let’s find out the extent of the crime.”

“We met some people and didn’t hug them when we met and at the end, I just sort of forgot,” the political strategist said.

“When I left I hugged them, am I a criminal?” Campbell added while Reid shook her head at him. 

Moving on, he continued: “By the way can I apologise, this proves I do need glasses I’m afraid. I think I called Christine, Caroline at one point.”
