Adil Ray and Susanna Reid were left in disbelief on Thursday after Ed Miliband made an admission while live on Good Morning Britain.
Adil and Susanna were hosting the show on Thursday with Mr Miliband being interviewed over his all-electric drive.
But when asked about owning an electric vehicle, Ed admitted he has not yet bought one.
Ed said: “But it is only going to happen with bold government action and we are not seeing it at the moment.
“The government needs to step in.”
“I presume you have got one?” asked Susanna, alongside Adil, but Mr Miliband made an admission.
“It is a work in progress,” he said.
“What?” asked Adil.
Susanna looked stunned, too, and said: “Practice what you preach.”
“Hang on, hang on,” said Adil.
Mr Miliband said: “I haven’t yet. It is a work in progress. I have got an electric bike but I have not yet. I will do, let me assure you. We were on our way to buying one before the lockdown.
“It is going to happen, I promise you. I have bought an electric bike. It is on its way.”
“You are pushing for everybody to have an electric car and you do not have one yourself?” asked Susanna.
Adil said: “You have not even experienced one…”
“It isn’t accessible to you!” said Susanna, after Mr Miliband responded: “I am trying to make it accessible. I am pushing to make it accessible.”
