Hopefully Mariah Carey wasn’t tuning into Good Morning Britain today as Richard Arnold couldn’t remember the name of her iconic Christmas song All I Want For Christmas Is You.
On Tuesday’s show, Richard suffered a case of amnesia when telling viewers what Nile Rodgers revealed his favourite Christmas song to be.
Nile told the entertainment presenter that he loves Mariah’s chart-topping festive jingle, originally released in 1994.
However, Richard’s mind went blank when it came to actually naming the track and burst out in laughter admitting: ‘That big tune that I’ve completely forgotten it’s called,’ before the penny finally dropped.
Blaming producers for not helping him out, Richard added: ‘You would’ve thought they wouldn’t throw me under the bus I can’t believe it. I’ve just forgotten a Mariah Carey song I’m going to be thrown out of the club.’
He then quipped: ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.’
Mariah finally landed a number one with AIWFCIY last December to coincide with the song’s 25th anniversary.
At the beginning of November, she declared it was finally ‘time’ to start playing the song again with Halloween over.
It came after she insisted it was ‘too early’ to press play on everyone’s favourite festive track after an eager fan shared a screenshot of a Google Trend search showing that interest in Mariah’s iconic festive jam had slightly creeped up as December approached.

‘It’s happening,’ Mike Nicolella captioned the image with all the anticipation.
However, Mariah caught wind of the excitement and promptly put him and any other anxious fans in their place stating: ‘Not yet.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
