Vernon Kay was pretty quiet during a segment of This Morning when a caller complained to the host about catching her husband surreptitiously texting his ex.
The 47-year-old presenter was on the show Monday with Josie Gibson, 37, and they hosted a segment where viewers could phone in for life advice.
However, the scene turned awkward when a viewer named Gayle called for advice after she caught her husband sending sassy texts to one of his exes.
While Josie was hanging out with prostitutes, Vernon had notably given up – perhaps as his mind drifted back to the 2010 scandal that rocked his relationship with Tess Daly, to whom he married the year 2003, when he was caught having sex with topless model Rhian Sugden.
Monday’s show showed the person calling for advice after she found accusing messages on her husband’s phone.
The only time Vernon participates is when he asks: “Is this the guy he’s seeing? An old partner? “
He then fell silent as Josie led the discussion and dealings with the caller, named Gayle.
Josie asked if something had happened between her husband and his ex, to which Gayle replied, “Looking at the texts, they didn’t sleep together or anything.”

Josie then asked: “Maybe, you think he just wanted someone to talk to?”
And Gayle replied, “Maybe. But some of the texts he sent were very reckless.”
This discussion bears a striking resemblance to a scandal that engulfed Vernon in 2010 when he was caught red-handed Rhian, 35, behind his 53-year-old wife, Tess Daly.
Reports reveal that Vernon pursued Rhian for 4 months, texting her via Twitter, text, and email.
The Page 3 rumors also claim that Vernon tried to lure her into a hotel room – but later insisted she had never met him and that they were only sharing “close friendships and flirtatious messages”.
Rhian also apologized sincerely to Tess – with whom Vernon shares two children; daughters Phoebe, 17, and Amber, 12.
While Vernon himself was forced to issue an unfortunate apology to Tess over Radio 1 when his silly messages were exposed.
The pair survived the scandal – after Vernon issued an apology and promised to never text Rhian, nor the 4 other women he was caught texting, again.
Considering his past, some This Morning viewers felt that Vernon shouldn’t have been on the air to help give advice to Gayle – who, it was revealed, was also undergoing chemotherapy at the time of her found out her husband of 18 years was texting. had an affair with an ex for two and a half years.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer commented: “Not sure if Vernon is the right person to give a segment on flirty text messageers.”
And another concurred, writing: “Vernon kept quiet on a phone call from a woman the man texted to another woman! CLUMSY!”
