One on Twitter said: “Does Billie Piper know where her webcam is? Clearly doesn’t want to be there. #TheOneShow.”

Another said, “Don’t think they’ll be asking Billie back for an interview in a hurry… #TheOneShow” and added in a separate tweet, “She was weird”.

Someone else agreed, writing: “I thought the same! Wasn’t really interested at all.”

Clearly doesn’t want to be there.

A fourth viewer said: “Billie can’t be [bleeped] #TheOneShow.”

“Why could Billie Piper not take her hand off her face?” asked a fifth.

ED! contacted the BBC for comment.

Billie was on to talk about her new show, I Hate Suzie, and Alex asked how much the character she plays was based on her.

The former Doctor Who star said: “I would say that a lot of our feelings and emotions and observations feature in the show and drive the narrative.

“But moment-to-moment autobiographical [aspects are] not… in fact, I would be quite nervous for people to think that some of these things actually happened to me!”

The series’ writer Lucy Prebble, who was on with Billie, said: “I wrote the eight episodes of the show and we created that show together.

“But I did quite a lot of work writing it. It’s not just taken from life at all, there’s quite a lot of work that’s gone into it.”
