THIS Morning's Dermot O'Leary suffered an awkward moment when he asked his co-host Alison Hammond how she styles her fake hair.
Today's show featured a segment on "curl power", teaching women how to embrace their wavy hair.
But Dermot was left red-faced when he tried to strike up a conversation with Alison about her curly locks – and was firmly put in his place.
He said: "You have lovely curls."What do you with them?"
Baffled Alison replied: "What do you mean, 'what do I do with them'?
"It's fake hair."
After being stopped in his tracks, Dermot said: "Oh, well it's sensational.
"I thought you just had a different style each day."
Alison burst out laughing that Dermot had no clue she wore a hair piece.
"This is my protective hairstyle," she explained.
"When I want to protect my hair for a while I braid my hair underneath and then attach my hair underneath.
"It's not my real hair, it's synthetic."
Trying to smooth over the awkward gaffe, Dermot said: "Incredible. You learn something new every day."
