This Morning viewers were left gobsmacked on Tuesday as guest Elizabeth Hoad married her pet dog, Logan, live on air.
The ceremony, which was officiated by a sniggering Alison Hammond, saw an emotional Elizabeth walk down the aisle in a white dress and a fascinator, accompanied by Eamonn Holmes as the bemused This Morning cast watched from the sideines.

Kem Cetinay was on hand to give a ring to Elizabeth, and she placed a wedding bracelet on the dog’s paw while tearfully saying her I do’s.
The bizarre ceremony was even packed with doggy vows, as Elizabeth declared: “With my body I promise to take you for daily walkies and all that I have in my doggy treat cupboard I give to you, and all those cuddles on the sofa I share with you.”
But even the blushing bride couldn’t help but notice Logan – who she rescued from a shelter – didn’t look too thrilled as he stood in a top hat and a tuxedo, causing her to sheepishly comment: “He doesn’t look very happy does he?”
Speaking to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford on the famous sofa ahead of her nuptials, Elizabeth explained why she had made the drastic decision, revealing that after four failed engagements and 221 dates she had given up on men for good.
Elizabeth said: “It was like we were meant to meet. He’s saved me and I’ve saved him. I was broken before I got him. I got a dog behaviourist when I first got him and she said he’d saved me.”
Elizabeth told Eamonn and Ruth that she had been on dating website after dating website, but failed to find a love like theirs.
“It must be me. I dont know, I’ll tell you what I think…. the older men want the younger women and the younger man want the older women,” she reasoned.
“I’ve got a son of 25, men of that age are asking me out.”
The final straw was when she was speaking to a man called Alibi Andi after meeting on Facebook only to discover he was already married.
“It is quite extreme to go from that to saying ‘I’m fed up with them all, I’ll marry my dog,” Ruth tried to politely reason.
However, Elizabeth replied: “It’s not just me. I have about 10 other friends, we go on lots of treks with all our dogs and one of my friends said ‘why dont you just marry him’.”
Ruth then suggested that perhaps Elizabeth’s pal was joking, to which she clapped back: “After the Alibi Andy incident, i thought, no this is it now.”
“There has to be a law against marrying your bloody dog #ThisMorning ,” one flabbergasted viewer wrote.
While another added: “If you can get what you need in a relationship from a dog, then maybe… MAYBE it’s your issue, rather than the men you date. #ThisMorning “.
