Richard Arnold caused quite the stir on Good Morning Britain on Friday (May 26) while celebrating 50 years of The Rocky Horror Show.
The presenter joined hosts Charlotte Hawkins and Ben Shepard in the ITV studio to chat about his latest visit to the West End. Ahead of a pre-recorded segment, the presenter warned viewers: 'Brace yourselves - because some things cannot be unseen."
