Uh oh, doesn’t Sylvia Jeffreys know Richard Wilkins’ hair is not a laughing matter!
The veteran Today show host's bouffant ‘do was the butt of this morning’s jokes when the show played a viral video of a toddler yelling at an apparent T-Rex visible off screen.
'Maybe it's Dickie's hair!' Sylvia cheekily offered as an explanation, to which Richard replied with a withering, ‘Oh Sylvia’.
'Well it is the T-Rex- oh no that's the other one - the stegosaurus.'
'Are you saying Dickie is a dinosaur?' Co-host Tim Gilbert asked Sylvia, who added: 'I'm saying he has got magnificent hair.'
At which point the entertainment host appeared to have had enough – throwing his hands up in the air and walking off camera. Although attempting a veneer of jest, some of his more unguarded facial expressions indicated he probably wasn't laughing on the inside. He also disappeared for an hour.
'Dickie we love you your hair is magnificent,' Sylvia called. 'Thank you Sylvia yours too,' he answered somewhat insincerely.
This isn’t the first time Richard has been teased for his voluminous hair. The host has even poked fun at his famous ‘do last Christmas by posting a picture of Father Christmas applying hairspray to his locks.
