Today Montana Brown has appeared on This Morning to remember her friend Mike Thalassitis who took his own life over the weekend.
Montana was very upset during her appearance on ITV monday morning as she spoke to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
Montana confirmed that Mike went through a ‘dark place’ in November and December of last year as he was suffering with debts, the loss of his best friend who passed away on December 25th last year and the recent passing of his nan just last week.
Montana started off the interview saying that people have not been happy with the media usage of his nickname ‘Muggy Mike’ what he was named while on Love Island but she said that he actually liked that name and found it funny.
Brown confirmed that Mike use to confide in her and it was just a few days before his death when he texted her but she never replied as she said:
“I’m really kicking myself but he texted me and I didn’t reply,”
Last night viewers noticed that Gemma Collins was missing from the end of the show on Dancing On Ice but now we know why.
It seems on Sunday Gemma was being a bit difficult as she decided to hold the whole studio up during rehearsals as she walked off to her dressing room to have a nap. Then when it was coming towards the end of the live show on Sunday night Gemma decided to leave the studies early because she was ‘bored’.
Talking on This MorningPhillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby where joined by Kem Cetinay who was talking about all the gossip backstage when he revealed that Gemma went early.
Holly and Phillip didn’t seem Happy at all as Holly said:
The thing is I really love Gemma, you know I’m a big fan of Gemma’s and I think she’s great on the show I do, but I think there has to be a bit of professionalism that comes into any work you do, just a bit of pride in your work.’
Schofield then said:
‘In all the years I’ve been in television, I have never kept a studio waiting.’
Kem then said that Gemma’s excuse for her behaviour was:
‘I think, she says it’s not Gemma Collins, that’s The GC.’
He has one of the biggest TV jobs in america hosting Extra TV what aries daily in the states but now Essex boy Mark Wright is going to be returning to the UK to host This Morning.
Mark is going to be hosting the show for the first time on Friday alongside Mollie King who has been standing in for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford who have been hosting the daily show Monday to Thursday while Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are on their summer break.
A source has said to the Mail Online:
‘Mark is super keen to continue presenting in both the UK and the USA – and sees This Morning as great way to re-introduce himself to UK viewers as a host since spending the last year on TV every night in the USA as the host of EXTRA.
‘Mark will present This Morning this Friday alongside Mollie King, who herself is new to the This Morning team, after hosting two weeks ago with Ben Shepard and last week with Matt Edmundson.’
We wonder how Mark will go down with the viewers with his Essex charm we bet he will be fantastic.
