Good Morning Britain's host Ranvir Singh snapped when a "creepy" deepfake video lightened her skin colour in a Spice Girl music video.
The presenter was chatting with showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold on Wednesday's show about Victoria Beckham's son Brooklyn mocking his mum by popping his face on hers for the girl group's hit song "Say You'll Be There".
After the clip aired, Richard then showed a deepfake version with Ranvir's face over it.
The 43-year-old re-watched the clip the and gasped: "Oh that's not me! What have you done to my skin colour?
"I’m not white, I don’t know if anybody’s noticed. Anyway, thank you very much."
To steer the awkward blunder away, Richard added: "It reminds me of those old Foxy Bingo adverts. It’s all a bit dark. Not for me at all."
Clearly not amused by the technology, Ranvir said: "No, a bit creepy. You know what I find lovely? The real legs of Ben and Susanna have entered the studio. There's nothing fake about them."
