Gok Wan left ‘shaking’ and almost in tears as he walks off This Morning set

Poor Gok Wan might have wanted more than an hour and a half’s sleep before coming into the This Morning studio today.

The fashion expert, who was presenting the show with Rylan Clark-Neal today, was left "shaking" and almost in tears after he faced his biggest fear – snakes.

Gok even walked off the set when a serpent was brought out by an expert and wasn’t even able to look at it.

Opening the show, Gok revealed that he had only had been very restless last night, quipping: "I was so excited that i couldn’t sleep!"

He added: "I don’t know what’s going to come out of my mouth."

But just ten minutes later Gok was feeling sick as they spoke to a fellow snake phobic, who had found one in his bathroom.

Before chatting to the man via video link, Gok admitted that he was just "shaking" thinking about it.

Stuart, who is blind, revealed that the huge snake had been found wrapped around his shower head. However he only realised this when he got an expert in.

"I’ve got a terrible phobia of snakes – I would have fainted there and then," Gok said.

Later, snake expert Trevor brought out a snake – leading Gok to run backstage.

He refused to look at the screen as Rylan asked questions about the various serpents.
