Ruth Langsford left viewers in hysterics on Thursday's This Morning after she accidentally announced that Ben Stiller would be on the show.

The presenter, 61, and her co-host husband Eamonn Holmes were set to talk to Ben Miller about his new ITV show Professor T, which starts on Sunday, but Ruth had a hilarious blunder with names.

Prior to his interview, Ruth said: "We're going to the weather now but don’t forget, Ben Stiller is here today talking about his new dramatic role in a new series for ITV."

While later on the show, after the interview, the presenter saw the funny side of her name blunder after Eamonn said: "Ben Miller, thank you," while Ruth quipped: "Or Ben Stiller as I called you earlier."

To which Ben joked: "I'll take that!"

Viewers were left in hysterics over the gaffe as they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One person said: "Ben Stiller? #ThisMorning."

A different viewer put: "'Or Ben Stiller as I called you' I can see the resemblance #ThisMorning," followed by crying laughing emojis.

While another viewer added: "@thismorning Is it my imagination or did Ruth just say Ben Stiller is on the show?" followed by crying laughing emojis.

Eamonn and Ruth returned as weekday hosts on This Morning earlier this week and fans couldn’t be happier to see them.

The married couple will be filling in for Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield throughout the summer, having been replaced on their long-time Friday hosting duties by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary earlier this year.

It comes after Lorraine Kelly was left giggling on Wednesday's episode of her self-titled talk show after she accidentally made a "rude" joke about her sex life to Eamonn and Ruth live on-air.

The presenter, 61, spoke to Eamonn and Ruth via video as they teased what was ahead for their daily instalment of This Morning, which they are hosting over the summer.

Eamonn said: "Sex/Life Lorraine. Sex/Life… not ours," to which Lorraine quipped: "I've no idea what you're talking about, it's all behind me!"
