At the start of last night’s show, Bradley Walsh asked Shaun what it’s like sitting next to Issa.

“It’s so good I’ve written a poem in his honour,” Shaun said, before reading out said poem.

“The Governess and Issu…,” Shaun began, but Issa quickly interrupted.

“Hang on…Issu?” he asked. “I’m Issa.”
