Hysterical: Andi Peters still managed to make a spectacular mess of a live link during Friday's edition of ITV's Good Morning Britain
While GMB hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway could hardly contain their laughter back in the London studio, Andi bumbled his way through a live link from a secret location in the UK.
Running backwards down a residential street, the 45-year-old presenter was first nearly tripped up by a wheelie bin as he attempted to explain the game's concept while moving.
Gathering his composure after the near-miss, Andi re-started his link and started walking again, telling viewers: 'I've got five boxes Three questions. Answer a question correctly and you get that box and inside that box...'

Ben, 41, teased her co-host by replying: 'I feel like we all got to know you a little bit better', while Kate hung her head in shame next to him.
He continued with the jibes by adding mercilessly: 'There's some things you can't un-see!'

Drug addict Hughes, who once had two properties in her home town, was told by Judge Simon James she was a person who blames everyone else but fails to take responsibility for her own actions.
During sentencing at Canterbury Crown Court last week, he said: 'You are still hell-bent on a path of self-destruction and are still in the thrall of Class A drugs.'
According to the Daily Mirror, speaking after the verdict Hughes said she had led a 'crazy life' and added: 'My family are really upset about everything that's happened.'
Tom Dunn, defending, said after a series of relationships with 'inadequate men', who let her down, lead her to bringing up four children by herself.
He said: 'She became homeless, began drinking and her life spiralled out of control but in 2005, after the birth of her fourth child, she enrolled at Dover South Kent College and became vice-president of the Students Union.
'Then an extraordinary piece of good fortune came her way when she won £691,000 on the National Lottery. She then bought two houses.'

The mother, who pleaded guilty to drugs offences, said she had been 'chronically' addicted to heroin since 2013 after being introduced to it by her partner at the time.
Hughes said other addicts then took advantage of her and 'she felt unable to turn them away' and she became 'someone those higher up the chain felt they could exploit' by making her drive the dealer's car around the town.
Judge James said: 'To balance your troubled childhood you were the subject of enormous good fortune in your life but that, it seems, was unable to persuade you to change your ways.'
She was arrested under an anti-drugs swoop named Operation Victory which saw seen nine people receive jail sentences totalling more than 26 years.
Hughes was handed a three month curfew and a two-year suspended jail sentence after pleading admitted her part in being concerning in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin and possession of heroin.

Matthew Dines, 30, was jailed for 30 months and Imran Hussain, 38, was sentenced to 18 months.
Detective Inspector Lopa McDermott said: 'These people were arrested and charged following a painstaking and complex police operation which involved officers working tirelessly to secure evidence to take out those dealing in Class a drugs on the streets of Dover and Deal.
'The nine sentenced this week reflects hours of policing work by dedicated professionals keen to rid the town of illegal drugs and the crime that stems from the use of them.
'The operation resulted in a number of dawn raids across Dover where these dealers were given a rude awakening by our officers and now they have time to reflect on their actions in prison.
'Our message is simple; if you deal in the death, pain and misery of class A drugs, expect to be arrested and put before the courts.'

The North Korea that Kim doesn’t want you to see: Sweeping dirt under the watch of soldiers, fearful waitresses and unlit streets among fascinating illegal images of rogue state
- Michal Huniewicz risked detention by taking photos of everyday life in North Korea and smuggling them out
- Photographer visited the secretive state and managed to evade the watchful eye of his official tour guide
- Cleaners are seen sweeping in Pyongyang and a waitress works next to a television broadcasting propaganda
- Customers form reveals what is banned in the country, including pornography and the comedy film, The Inteview
A daring photographer has risked detention to smuggle a series of stunning images of North Korea out of the secretive state.
Michal Huniewicz captured the photographs he knew Kim Jong-un would not want you to see during a trip to the country, before smuggling them out on hidden memory cards.
Unlike the polished photographs peddled by the state-run news agency, Mr Huniewicz’s images give a raw insight into a poverty-ridden country controlled by a dictator.
He went to North Korea from China last year and travelled with a tour guide - one of the conditions of being allowed a visit to the country.
Mr Huniewicz evaded his minder's watchful eye to take these photographs, which give a unique glimpse into North Koreans' everyday lives.
Some are pictured working in the fields, while others are seen taking part in the Victory Day Dance in the famous Kim II-Sung square in the squeaky-clean capital, Pyongyang.
In one image, street cleaners sweep pavements under the watchful eye of a soldier in one of Pyongyang's parks, and others reveal waitresses working in restaurants where propaganda images are broadcast around the clock on television.
A photograph of a customs form reveals what cannot be brought into the country. Mr Huniewicz revealed laptops are searched for Hollywood film The Interview, a comedy about Kim Jong-un, which is banned in North Korea.

Let's face it, you've all thought about it at one time or another.
1. The fact that they are all the same. Yes, even yours.
Doctors said the woman had passed away following a car crash in 2014
A man who believed his wife was dead found out she was in fact still alive after she was spotted on a television programme.
The searches are being conducted as part of an on-going investigation into an organised crime group which is involved in the distribution, sale and supply of controlled drugs in Dublin city centre and adjoining suburbs.
Sources say these raids are connected to those on Wednesday in which high powered cars and motorbikes were seized from a home and premises in Crumlin.
This morning's raids on 10 addresses in and around the south city commenced at 7am.
They are focused on the same criminal gang that were raided in a multi-garda agency operation in Crumlin on Wednesday morning.
Addresses that were the focus of attention today range from flats, apartments and houses in the Dublin 2, Dublin 8 and Inchicore areas of the capital.
At one address in the Liberties area a sniffer dog was brought in to assist in the search of a house which had multiple CCTV cameras on it.
One man was arrested during the raids.
It is understood he was detained after a background check confirmed an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Gardai are equipped with battering rams and were prepared to enter homes by force if necessary.
On Wednesday over €1m worth of property was seized and panic room discovered as raids were conducted on suspected associates of the Kinahan drug cartel .
Gardai said a large amount of money had been spent on renovating some of the houses searched, which had been fitted with items ranging from jacuzzis to high-end TVs.
Substantial investments were also made in security measures, including bullet proof windows, heavily reinforced doors and CCTV systems.
However, gardai were stunned to discover convicted criminal Liam Byrne had a panic room designed to escape an attack by would-be assassins in his Crumlin home.
His brother David Byrne was shot dead in the Regency Hotel by a rival gang as part of a bloody feud with the Hutch family last month. The shooting sparked off a retaliatory strike, which claimed the life of taxi driver Eddie Hutch, who was not regarded as being a member of the rival outfit but was singled out because of family connections.
Sources told the Irish Independent the security work was done some time ago, suggesting that Byrne had been concerned about becoming a gangland target long before the feud broke out with the Hutch clan.
“He (Byrne) was clearly planning ahead when he re-built the house because he had a purpose-built panic room of the type recommended to potential kidnap targets by the security industry,” said a source.
“The doors and windows can withstand even a small bomb which means he could buy himself time to get his family into the safety of the panic room.”
The property also boasted a steam room and a bar which was fully stocked with champagne, a source said.
Members of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) were forced to swap the breeching equipment they normally use in forced entries for angle grinders to break through the door yesterday morning.
Detectives said the home in Raleigh Square had been turned into a fortress, with a front door designed to withstand the blast from a small bomb.
Gardai dealt a severe financial blow to the Irish-based associates of the global drug trafficking cartel, led by Dubliner Christy Kinahan.
The homes of several suspected key associates were among a series of premises searched in dawn raids in the capital.
Almost 30 top of the range cars, six motorcycles, jewellery and expensive Rolex watches – with a total property value estimated to be well in excess of €1m – were seized, as well as €100,000 in cash.
A betting slip for a bet of €38,000 for tonight’s Liverpool V Manchester football match was also found. The odds on this slip were 7/4.
The operation, co-ordinated by officers from the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB), focused mainly on houses close to the home of David Byrne.
