Much-loved TV host Andi Peters is a familiar face on ITV's Good Morning Britain, where he pops up daily presenting competition segments and delivering plenty of laughs.
Today's show was a special one for the TV veteran as he revealed that it's his birthday – and then stunned viewers by sharing his age.
Andi quipped on Friday's show: "I may have mentioned it was my birthday today," to which host Ben Shepherd, 47, replied that the team had forgotten to get him a gift.
"That's alright," Andi replied. "There's loads of people in the tea bar who want to buy me a drink."
Chat the turned to Andi's age, as Ben asked him: "How many birthdays is it today?"
"31," he replied with a cheeky smile, before sharing the truth by turning to camera and stating: "As they say, black don't crack, 52 today."
Ranvir Singh, 44, exclaimed, "52?!" and Alex Beresford, 41, said: "You look younger than me."
"You look good I have to say," GMB co-presenter Sean Fletcher added, to which Andi replied: "Thank you… and Sean's 104."
Later in the show it was revealed his colleagues had of course remembered his birthday, and they presented Andi with a cake, complete with a figurine and tropical island, in a nod to how he's always travelling to exotic destinations.
On Twitter, the greetings poured in with many fans sharing their shock at his age.
One wrote: "Andi Peters just never seems to age." Another added: "Andi Peters is 52 today. FIFTY TWO. Wow."
A third said: "How is Andi Peters 52? He looks amazing." And a fourth said: "@AndiPeters You're never 52. Happy birthday."
The former Live & Kicking host is known for his cheeky personality. He recently presented a live GMB segment from the Love Island villa. Speaking live to the ITV studio, Andi revealed that he couldn't be too loud as the islanders were asleep and had no clue that he was there.
He said: "I am here in the Love Island villa, live! I've got to speak in hush tones because they're all asleep right now. They're all asleep right now and they're in their bedroom."
