On ITV This Morning today (Tuesday, June 15), viewers cringed when a Dreamboy undressed live on air.
The nerdy moment saw one of the notorious dance troupe take off her top to reveal a muscular, toned body.
But instead of having everyone warm under the collar, it seemed like his antics had the opposite effect.

What happened this morning today?
A stripper from the cast appeared on the show today and told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that he had honed his craft during the lockdown.
And, before they could say anything, he jumped into the action, threw up his top, and did a backflip.

How did viewers react to the stripper?
Far from pumping blood, however, the Dreamboy left viewers decidedly cold.
So much so that many took to Twitter to comment on the ‘squeak party’.
One of them said, “Oh no, that was cringe, I mean don’t get me wrong I looked intently but I cringe #this morning.”
Another wrote: “Dreamboys… cringefest.”

However, others loved the Dreamboy antics as one of them said, “Well that Dreamboy taking off his top gave me a boost.”
Anotehr wrote: “It was just my morning, what’s the name of this Dreamboy?” He is hot.”
What’s happening on ITV This Morning during the summer?
Having a male stripper on the show and then an article on dehydration (as well as a segment on watermelons) means summer is definitely here.
