Liberty just giggled.

Eamonn’s wife Ruth Langsford said: “Liberty’s got the ick again!”

Viewers were left cringing over Eamonn’s question and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

One person said: “Eamonn has just made the end of that interview hella awkward.”

Another added: “Why did Eamonn have to make them both so uncomfortable? That was horrible to watch.”

A third tweeted: “Eamonn made that so awkward omg #ThisMorning.”

Meanwhile, Jake and Liberty opened up about their breakup.

Jake said: “There just came a point where we were at a halt. I’m quite glad she put it on me to be honest because I didn’t have the bite to do it.”

Eamonn then asked: “Is this the end of ‘Jiberty’ or could there be a resuscitation going on?”

Jake admitted: “I feel it would be a lot easier on the outside but I don’t know. We haven’t spoke really or about anything.”

He added: “I’d like to think so but it takes two to tango.”

Liberty said: “I think I definitely made the right decision in there for me at the time.

“You can never say never because you don’t know what’s going to happen in the future but for now we definitely made the right decision.”
