‘Don’t steal my line!’ Adam Rickitt’s presenter wife responds to an awkward situation with a co-star.
Katy Rickitt, Adam Rickitt’s presenter wife, has spoken out about a scene with her ITV co-star Duncan Wood that she says doesn’t appear to be what it appears to be.
Katy Rickitt shared a photo with her ITV News Calendar co-star Duncan Wood, 71, in which they both appeared to be making a passionate point while speaking to each other with their hands.
The snaps could easily be misinterpreted as a heated debate without context, but the presenter claimed that was not the case.
Last night, in front of her 19,000 followers, the 37-year-old shared two screenshots of the moment.
“Oi, don’t steal my line!” she wrote.
“On the media screen in our office, this is the freeze frame that takes up 6 feet of our office wall!”
“I promise, @duncanwooditv, we really like each other.”
In the midst of a major family update, Gary Barlow bids his daughter farewell.
The photograph was taken after the most recent episode of the show was completed.
Katy also posted the photos to her Instagram account, where many of her fans commented on them.
“Should we high five? @katyrickitt: Can’t see why not!” Glenn Cooney wrote on Twitter.
“I believe that is the most accurate description of the situation.”
“You’re such a good team,” Dancowham added.
“Nice bit of teamwork?” Baggaleyphil typed.
Duncan has yet to respond to the incident on his Facebook page, but he did respond to a viewer who asked why they weren’t wearing masks.
The presenting duo sits relatively close to each other to front the show, which hasn’t gone unnoticed, unlike on some other shows.

“Why aren’t you and your fellow anchors wearing masks to present Calendar News?” tweeted @Fair4all3.
“The Calendar presenters are all in a cohort,” he explained, “which means we have a weekly PCR test to ensure we’re all negative.”
“It’s a well-known method that allows colleagues to work closer together without the use of a mask, and it’s used throughout the industry and at ITV.”
“I hope this information is useful.”
Others commented on how the couple carefully coordinated their outfits for the show.
Katy wore a bold blue gown last night, while Duncan wore a grey suit with a blue tie that was a perfect match.
“Does the tie.,” @NigeAireValley asked.
