Clunes had appeared on the show to talk about his plans to host the world’s largest virtual tea party this afternoon (21st April) in aid of charity – but viewers found themselves distracted by his fetching striped pjs.

“One question I have to ask is – some viewers are asking, are you wearing your pyjamas?,” Morgan said near the end of the segment.
“Yeah,” said Clunes, prompting Morgan to burst out laughing.
“Did you forget you are on national television, or is it a statement of intent?” Morgan said, to which Clunes jokingly replied that, being at home, he had “no access to the make-up” that he “so desperately need[s]”.
