Sunday Brunch welcomed Joe McFadden onto the Channel 4 show.
From the off, there was an unfortunate elephant in the room as the Strictly Come Dancing winner came face-to-face with one of his fellow competitors.
Simon Rimmer was the fifth contestant to be eliminated in the 2017 series, but it worked out a lot better for Joe, who won.
When Sunday Brunch started this morning, the table immediately had to address the situation.
Joe, 43, couldn’t believe how early Tim, 50, and Simon, 55, get up each Sunday for the show.
He said: “This is what you did ever Sunday morning after Strictly?”
Tim swiped: “You didn’t know he was a presenter?”
Joe laughed at the awkward moment, saying how he didn’t mean what Tim was implying.
The presenter added how Strictly Come Dancing went well for the former Holby City actor.
Joe coyly giggled: “I did alright…”
At that, Simon had jokingly had enough and put his head close to the table.
He coughed, saying: “Erm… we have to move on.”
At that, the studio erupted in hysterics and the team got on with today’s exciting show.
While all of this was happening, Sunday Brunch viewers found themselves rather distracted.
Tim was sporting a brand new beard today, and many couldn’t ignore the sight.
One fan tweeted: “OK. A little late. First things.. Bizarrely I quite like Tim’s beard.. not much else but the beard works.”
Another added: “I’m digging @timlovejoy beard.”
A third wrote: “#SundayBrunch what, when how did Tim grow a full beard in a week and more importantly WHY?”
Sunday Brunch airs Sundays on Channel 4 from 9.30pm.
