This Morning host Dermot O'Leary throws a chair across the studio in FURY during Spin To Win competition

THIS Morning presenter Dermot O'Leary gave a rare glimpse of his angry side as he chucked a chair across the studio.

The host, joined by Alison Hammond, was fronting the much-loved Spin To Win segment of the programme, where guests can win an array of cash prizes.

When they are called up by the This Morning duo, ITV viewers are required to answer with a password, which today was "Noone puts baby in the corner," from iconic chic flick, Dirty Dancing.

Yet after the first handful of viewers either didn't pick up, sent their call to voicemail, or answered with a simple "hello", the dad of one, 47, became a little irked.

Wearing a black roll neck jumper and stone coloured trousers, Dermot picked up a golden chair close by and threw it across the room.

Alison, who was standing sheltered behind the bingo machine, uttered: "Ooh babes calm down!"



Dermot later said: "I'm so upset, I ruined the doilie," as he gazed at the tan-coloured doilie chair seat that lay strewn on the floor.

Luckily the game segment had a happier ending as contestant Nicky scooped £1,000 in the tight time limit.

Fans were quick to flag his unexpected antics on Twitter, with one posting: "What sort of example is Dermot setting? Throwing a chair in a rage at someone not answering a phone call! Should he follow Piers out the door?"

Another posted: "Blimey!! Dermot’s a bit “excited” by Spin to Win!!!!"


It's not the only time Dermot has left his co-host and former Big Brother star Alison in shock.

Recently, he walked out of the studio after revealing he was desperate for the loo.

She and Dermot had been tasting huge glasses of juice with health expert Jason Vale when he was suddenly overwhelmed by the need to use the toilet.

He said: "Let's go to the break as quickly as possible so me and Alison can go to the toilet."


Then, before the show had even ended to make way for adverts, he got out of his seat and wandered off.

He was back in his seat three minutes later with one observant fan tweeting: "Dermot back from the loo."

Dermot, who has hosted This Morning alongside Alison since January, also addressed The Sun's story that he had proved too boring for Who Do You Think You Are?

He explained that he had applied but got knocked back – before bringing on his parents to talk about the family live from Wexford in Ireland.

Demot insisted the O'Learys weren't really the O'Drearys and insisting they were a family of adventure-loving seafarers.

He said: “They actually researched my family for about three months. They came back and said, ‘There’s just not enough interesting stuff about your family’."
