GMB: Katy Rickitt makes awkward World Cup blunder
Katy Rickitt, 36, started her Tuesday morning the wrong way, as the Good Morning Britain star had the fright of her life as she prepared to film for the ITV show. The journalist admitted she “jumped out of her skin” after coming across a frightful sight in a parked car.
Holy s##t!!! Literally jumped out my skin!
Taking to Instagram, Katy shared the scary shot that left her cursing in fright.
The pic showed a VW van with what appeared to be a mysterious masked figure inside.
And that’s enough to make anybody want to scarper as quick as they possibly can!

But she needn’t have worried, as it turned out it was just the passenger seat decorated with the ominous mask and a high-vis jacket hung around the seat.
Assuming it was supposed to be a practical joke to see if they could catch people out, it certainly did the trick on poor Katy.
Alongside the photo, she posted the caption: “Holy s##t!!!
“Literally jumped out my skin.”

But to her relief, she wasn’t the only who had mistaken the funny yet terrifying prank for a real person.
Taking to the comments section, fans agreed that they too would have fled the scene.
“That is some pretty scary s##t going on there!!” one exclaimed.
Another agreed: “Oh my word I would have fled.”
“Jesus, at least its daytime!! I would crap myself seeing it at night for sure,” a third noted.
A fourth joked: “If that had driven past you when you were live on air your reaction would’ve been great TV.. sure you’d have styled it out though.”
Someone else explained another possible reason behind the choice to dress the chair up as a person, other than it being joke.
“Someone round where I live has got that on the other seat next to them,” they explained.
“I think it’s a thing where if someone tries to break into a car, van or whatever it looks like someone’s in the van so then no one breaks in it (if that made sense).”
Another agreed with them: “I think some use it as a robbery deterrent! Still freaky though.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
