While speaking to actor Vinnie Jones about grief, Alastair accidentally said that the nation had been reflecting on grief more recently in light of the Queen's death - meaning to say the death of Prince Phillip, her husband. After he realised he had made the blunder, Alastair made sure to get in touch with "the Queen's people" to get them to tell her he was very sorry for saying she was dead on live TV, the presenter exclusively revealed to My London. Alastair appeared on GMB as a host from Monday to Wednesday last week in honour of Mental Health Awareness week and the recent release of his acclaimed book on mental health, Living Better, being released in paperback.
. Everything went smoothly - except one minor slip up. "I didn't realise immediately that I had done it - I only heard it through my ear piece," Alastair told MyLondon in an exclusive interview. "What happened is I was talking to Vinnie Jones about grief and so I said 'well of course there's been a lot of reflection on grief since the recent death of the Queen' and then I carried on. "And then so into my earpiece goes: 'Alastair, Alastair, you just announced the death of the Queen. You need to correct that, correct it.'
