The 44-year-old presenter was perplexed after an intruding mascot took control of proceedings in a bizarre television moment.
Athletics mascot Hero the Hedgehog appeared on the show, but had to be warned to behave and eventually asked to leave.
Introducing the mascot, Gabby said: “From one hero to another, because we’ve been invaded in the studio for the last 10 minutes of so. Hero the hedgehog has arrived and we don’t know what’s going to happen next so just bear with us.”
As the mascot mucked around with the guests and performed a headstand beside the host on the sofa, Gabby gasped: “Oh hang on, he’s going to give Michael a little hug. Sit down. Hero is not mic’d up because Hero doesn’t speak.

“Woah, woah! Hero, this is… Hero, you’re not insured on our public liability insurance isn’t that high, okay? So whatever you’re going to do next, just think about it. Think about your family!”
Hoping to oust the unnerving furry guest, Gabby opened the path for the unwelcome mascot to make a swift exit.
She continued: “Hero, I know you’ve got to go and spread the Hero word for the stadium, so it’s been great meeting you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. We Hero worship you.”

As the mascot began to grab ahold of Gabby’s arm and start kissing his way to the top, Gabby shrieked: “Oh my goodness me. It’s a bit… it’s before the watershed for stuff like that isn’t it? My kids are watching at home!”
Hero the Hedgehog then shocked the panelists by darting across the studio, falling to the floor, crossing Gabby’s path and knocking the studio cameras.
The frustrated presenter concluded: “Thank you Hero. Bye bye. Bye bye! Okay. Don’t work with animals and children and children dressed up as hedgehogs. Definitely don’t work with them!”
