Adil and Kate Garraway seemed thrilled to be joined by Barry Manilow via video link on Good Morning Britain to talk about his career. But technical errors and awkward moments overshadowed Barry’s interview as he tried in vain to promote his music and upcoming tour.
Starting the chat, Adil asked: “How do you keep going? It’s amazing.”
“Wait a minute, did you mention Flashy Lady?” Barry replied.
Adil continued: “Yeah, yeah I did. Do you still play it?”
As Barry revealed he doesn’t, the morning show began to play the track in the background.

“It’s all about the public, it’s all about the people out there,” Barry commented. “If they want me, they’ve given me this unbelievable life, this unbelievable career. As long as they come out, I’ll be there.’
Kate continued: “You’re coming to the UK in May as I understand. What do you make of…?”
But before she could continue, Barry jumped in to hold up a tour poster and read out the cities he would be visiting.
It wasn’t long before viewers took to Twitter to comment on the interview, with some many slamming the series.
