Laughing off the 'unfortunate incident', Andi continued presenting his section live from his back garden but did admit he was 'freezing'.

Laughing, he said: "We just had a rather unfortunate incident with the automatic sprinklers, I am literally drenched.

"Literally drenched. This is unreal."

Ever the professional, Andi carried on telling viewers about the competition and prizes they could win.

Afterwards, he joked that he was going to 'reprogramme the sprinklers so they don't come on again while I am doing live television'.

Hilarious

Andi may have been soggy and uncomfortable but Susanna and Piers found the whole situation hilarious.

Susanna pointed out what the rest of the show's viewers were thinking, saying the sprinklers explain why his garden looks so lush.

"I'm just drying myself off, it was literally like a Carry On sketch," he explained.

"There was water everywhere."

He added: "It's cold and I am soaking wet!"

Piers found the whole situation very amusing, joking: "Viewers could bet how many seconds Andi can survive in freezing cold water, and the winner gets a car!"

On-air blunders

It's not the first time that Andi has suffered an on-air blunder.

Last month, producers told him off for running out of time while he presented the competition slot from his garage.

"Leave it," he snapped, hearing producers grumble in his ear piece.

"Look they told me off for running out of time – the miserable people."
