‘That was the best thing I’ve seen since this pandemic started’: viewers remain hysterical this morning about the chat about the audience booking a GOAT for their Zoom calls
This morning, viewers were hysterical while watching the Friday edition of the show due to a discussion of goats appearing on Zoom calls.
Co-hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, both 60, talked to Dot McCarthy, a farmer whose goat Mary had unexpectedly become a popular animal to be booked by the public for video calls.
The farmer revealed that Mary first appeared in church live streams because of her religious name, and thanks to that success, she started accepting bookings for Mary in other zoom calls.

Eamonn then asked if Mary was pregnant while commenting on her weight, and Dot told him not to shame her animal because she had just had a baby that climbed over her during the chat.
The goat was clearly not interested in staying on camera for the discussion, but walked out of range before the interview was over.
Viewers shared their disbelief and absolute joy at the segment, joking that the show had peaked with the hilarious discussion.
