This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were left crying with laughter after Barry Humphries gave us all an update on what Dame Edna Everage is up to.
Turns out she’s having quite the lockdown.
After the couple introduced the legendary comedy actor as one of their favourite guests of all time, Eamonn got asking what we all wanted to know – how Dame Edna’s doing.
‘She’s in lockdown with her new boyfriend, Thomas Markle,’ Barry declared, with the presenters cracking up.
Elsewhere, the pair were left in bits when he joked that, as a ‘frustrated actor’, he’s been pretending the weekly nationwide round of applause for the NHS is for him, and that his wife has spent lockdown sewing up the ‘aperture’ in his pyjama bottoms.

‘Barry Humphries is owning the show today. Brilliant!’ one more said, while another said: ‘Barry Humphries on #ThisMorning hilarious! So deserves a knighthood.’
It’s not the first time Barry’s joked about Edna’s ‘relationship’ with Meghan Markle’s father, with the Dame previously telling The Sun: ‘There is a man in my life and his name is Tom.
