It is thought that Dermot O’Leary is one of the more down-to-earth TV personalities, at least that is what we thought.
The host of ITV’s This Morning said today that he had never heard of two of the most popular budget stores in the UK. This left viewers shocked and in disbelief.
Ordinary people find it hard to think about a future without B&M or Home Bargains because we don’t live in very special places.
During his appearance on Coupon Queen, Dermot told the show that he was completely “stunned” by the two stores. It turns out that that’s the kind of place where he lives.
In the absence of them, where would we be able to buy our cleaning supplies for half the price we would pay at other big supermarkets if we didn’t?
It’s hard to decorate our homes in a glam way if there aren’t more expensive stores nearby. Where else could we do this for a quarter of the money we would need if they didn’t exist?
That’s what a lot of people are wondering this morning, after Dermot broke the news.
Alison Hammond, one of his co-hosts, was as shocked as he was by the revelation. She said that she might take her friend on a special shopping trip to see what he has been missing out on.
Fans were surprised, but found the whole thing to be very funny.
After learning about Home Bargains or BM stores from the “Coupon Queen” on @thismorning, Dermot O’Leary was “shocked,” one person said. “Alison Hammond‘s concerned but calming hand on his shoulder, talking about the stores.”
Another person said, “Wow!!” I don’t think @thismorning and @radioleary even know what @homebargains and b&m are. He lives in what kind of world. He goes to a lot of different stores. What’s going on? @AlisonHammond.”
“@radioleary has never heard of Home Bargains or B & M. How is this even possible?” Josiestweet, AllisonHammond, and @Josiestweet are all on Twitter. Please show him what life is like on the other side.
While one fan said, “@radioleary @AlisonHammond, please come on.” Make a segment on your show where you take Dermot to @homebargains and B&M stores. Please, please, make this happen! We need to show him what he hasn’t been getting. #Dermotgoesshoppung.”
