During today's pet clinic on *This Morning*, hosts Marvin and Rochelle Humes - together with vet Joe Inglis - came face to face with dogs and cats that had a variety of skin conditions and bad breath, but it was pet parrot 'Merlin' that caused the biggest concern!
Whilst owner Lesley explained that her African Grey parrot had started to pull out his own feathers, Rochelle confessed, "I'm scared of parrots..." before learning that Merlin also says some naughty words. Rochelle said, "Oh no, let's not [get him] to do that now then!"
Just as Marvin and Rochelle said farewell to Lesley, Merlin took off and flew around the *This Morning *studio, leaving the hosts a little shocked.
Marvin explained, "Oh he's gone - he's flying off" leaving wife Rochelle open mouthed in shock. She said, "Oh my goodness! I told you I'm scared of birds because they just fly when you don't expect it..." Before adding, "There's a bird on the loose and its not me!"
At the end of the item, Rochelle was happy to announce that Merlin had been caught. She said, "Just to say that we've had word that the parrot is safe and fine, we're all good."
Marvin added, "Rochelle can now relax!"
