RICHARD Madeley returned to Good Morning Britain today after turning 66 on Friday 13.

The veteran broadcaster reluctantly acknowledged the occasion after wishing co-star Charlotte Hawkins a happy birthday.

Richard lamented: "I'm not going to say how old I was, but it was a bad one for me on Friday. At my age they're all bad."

Susanna Reid and Charlotte disagreed, calling it a "blessing".

But Richard laughed: "What, I'm lucky to still be alive?"

Susanna added: "Think of the alternative…"

It's Richard's wife Judy's birthday today too, prompting him to say May is a "good day" for birthdays.

Later in the show Richard and Susanna reflected on the amazing amount of money Dame Deborah James has raised this week for research into bowel cancer.

He said: "We do love you, Deborah. Even those who have never met you. We think you're wonderful."
