Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway was in hysterics on Friday, as she learned she'd been "trolled" by the company Lynx on Twitter.
The company who sell a range of male grooming products, including their famous body sprays, responded to her on-air comments about aftershaves.
Earlier on in the show, she was stunned by an item being given away in Andi Peters' latest competition.
As Andi explained that one big bottle of aftershave was worth £850, Kate could not believe her ears.
It was on a plate with other aftershaves, including Lynx Africa, but Kate was too focused on the big gold box of expensive spray.
Her co-host Ben Shephard said: "Kate is incredulous there is a bottle of men's fragrance that costs £850."

She replied: "I mean whack the Febreze on for heaven's sake, £850 quid for a bottle of aftershave? Wow."
Lynx didn't get a mention as she talked of the costly fragrance and Febreze, and for some reason they didn't seem too happy about that.
She obviously wasn't banking on Lynx seeing her comments either, and they responded online clearly hoping they'd have her loyalty.

Tweeting her directly, Lynx said: " @kategarraway we thought you’d be more of a Lynx Africa lover tbh? @[email protected]"
Ben claimed she had been "trolled", as the light-hearted comment left both hosts in hysterics.
He said: "We are getting trolled by Lynx this morning," leading to Kate gasping loudly.
Ben went on: "Andi Peters is giving away some fragrances as part of Free Cash Friday.
"Lynx has been onto Twitter cos Kate got excited cos one of them, Andi, is worth £850."
He proceeded to read out the tweet, with Kate immediately looking stunned before making a confession.
She said: "You know I have to say, I have smelled a lot of Lynx Africa because obviously Billy has turned 11, it's a key age for Lynx Africa.
"We've got the shower gel, the soap, the whole lot, so I have smelled that a lot. I love it I just haven't smelled the £850 one, so that is why I was highlighting that one, no offence to Lynx."
Kate couldn't believe they had got in contact
A day earlier, Andi had avoided dropping the expensive one – leading to a tweet from Lynx urging him to have caution with their own fragrance too.
They said: " @[email protected] don’t drop that Lynx Africa you mean, it’s very precious," making him laugh.
The account proceeded to tweet Ben and Andi on Friday too, showing there was no hard feelings.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
