Good Morning Britain viewers tuned in to watch the show's news coverage of A-level results day but were left completely floored after presenter Pip Tomson made a fatal error.

Kate Garraway passed over to Pip who was in Hull with four students waiting to open their results.

She briefly spoke to them to find out what they are planning on doing before she allowed them to check what they'd received.

One viewer wrote: "Yeah, just flash her private details on national telly."

Another added: "That’s it. Just show her results on national TV which has her personal information on!"

One stunned viewer tweeted out: "This is wrong on every level. Way to put these kids under pressure."

Another branded the ordeal a "weird theatre" and called it a "private matter" which shouldn't have been broadcast.
