Piers Morgan was completely mystified when a guest revealed she has eight lovers.
The Good Morning Britain host had never heard of the idea of polyamory, and was thoroughly distracted by the debate over women’s armpit hair when she mentioned the word.
Kate Smurthwaite, a comedian, was describing how her hairy armpits have never stopped her from finding a lover, and Piers was desperate to get back to his conversation.
He asked her: "Can I talk about your polyamorous thing for a minute, because I’ve never heard of this thing? What does that mean?"

As Kate explained how she practises "ethical non-monogamy," Piers was full of questions, and some of his probing became a little uncomfortable.
He continued: "And how many people are in your regular circle of non-monogamy? You’re with eight guys? You’re having sex with eight men?
"So you’re polyamorous, basically means you can have sex with whoever you like? And all eight men know you’re doing this?"
One thing Piers was keen to find out was whether they all hang out together, saying: "But do you go on holiday together, all of you? Do you take them all away together?"
Kate explained that he went out with a group of her lovers together, and those are a mixture of committed partners and more fluid boyfriends as well.

At this, Piers got a little bit concerned about some more intimate details of their relationship, probing: "And what happens at night? How many people did you wake up with on Christmas Day?"
Kate was shocked as she nervously giggled, just saying: "The right number of people!"
Susanna Reid also chastised him for this comment, telling him it’s between them and Kate rather than Piers.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
