Piers Morgan has make-up applied live on air as he battles a 'stinking cold'
The 53-year-old told viewers he had run out of time to get ready ahead of his 6am start.
He said: "Now I feel rough as a badger's backside, I've got a stinking cold.
"To compound the misery, I went to put on my shirt, I was just about to walk to make-up and the top button burst off under huge mounting pressure from the Christmas season, and I then had to wrestle around trying to find [a shirt].
"I then got to the make-up room and they suddenly said we had one and a half minutes to air, so I'm not appearing how I really look.
"I'm as clammy and sweaty and disgusting and unprotected by make-up, this is how I really look and it's pretty awful so I can only apologise."
Co-host Susanna Reid then joked: "Why don't we get make-up in now as viewers' screens are cracking around the country."
A few moments later, a make-up artist came onto set and Piers spun round to face her as she brushed his forehead, cheeks and chin with foundation.
As she did her job he added: "I'm actually sweating like a pig from the cold so this is a really unfortunate situation."
A few moments later, showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold received a message that his house alarm had gone off while he was in the middle of his entertainment news.
He said: "I just got a phone call saying the alarm is going off on my house.
"There's nothing left in it."
Piers joked: "That's the most action it's seen for a while."
