What Happened to Michael Barrymore on This Morning? Scandal and Controversy

By | August 5, 2023

Michael Barrymore, once a beloved British TV personality, has been making headlines lately after a chaotic interview on This Morning.

The interview, which was supposed to be a promotional spot for his new play, turned into a disaster after Barrymore appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He slurred his words, interrupted the hosts, and made jokes about his legal troubles. He even claimed not to know the hosts, Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle and made a hilarious outburst that threatened to stop the show altogether.


The interview left viewers shocked and outraged, and many took to social media to express their disappointment. Some users found Barrymore’s behavior offensive and questioned why he treated the hosts and the show disrespectfully. The situation was dubbed a “car crash,” a “disgrace,” and a “disaster” by the audience.

Speculations about Barrymore being under the influence of alcohol or drugs surfaced, while others sympathized with him and hoped he would seek help.

Barrymore has not yet addressed the incident directly. However, he did post a video on TikTok thanking This Morning for having him and showing snippets of him chatting with production staff and guests. He expressed that he had a “wonderful time” and was looking forward to his play.


Barrymore’s career peak was during the 1980s to the early 2000s when he was a beloved TV host in the UK. However, his fame took a devastating hit after the tragic drowning death of Stuart Lubbock in his Essex home’s swimming pool in 2001. This incident led to him being fired from ITV, forever tarnishing his reputation.

The This Morning interview has reignited the controversy surrounding Barrymore, and it remains to be seen how his career will be affected moving forward.
