Josie Gibson accidentally DROPS a biscuit on the floor while offering it to Paul Rudd as they enjoy tea in a hilarious This Morning interview
The presenter, 38, chatted to the actor, 53, about his role in the upcoming Marvel film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which hits cinemas on Friday.
During the interview, Josie introduced Paul to the British staple that is tea and biscuits, but proceeded to drop the treat on the floor.
The actor then picked it up before adding: ‘Great let me take that one,’ and dusted the fluff off it.
After playing a game during the chat, Paul added: ‘This is the greatest day of my life, this has been great. Thank you for giving me a biscuit that didn’t hit the ground.’

A giddy Josie couldn’t contain her excitement as she berated herself for dropping the biscuits on the floor.
Josie has been guest-hosting This Morning with Dermot O’Leary during Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s usual half-term break, with Alison Hammond absent as she prepares to host the British Academy Film Awards on Sunday.
Paul is in London to promote his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, after last playing the role in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.
The film finds Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) all getting sucked back into the mysterious Quantum Realm.
They find themselves interacting with the mysterious Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), who will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In fact, the next Avengers movie is dubbed Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, slated for release on May 2, 2025.
The cast also includes returning MCU characters like Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) with Corey Stoll – who played Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in the first Ant-Man – returning as M.O.D.O.K.
Newcomers include Bill Murray as Krylar, William Jackson Harper as Quaz and Katy M. O’Brian as Jentorra.
