“None of Cabinet Ministers would come on the telly because they were too scared.

“We all phoned up and went, ‘Hi, do you remember us?! Can you come back on the telly?’ And then they all came back on the telly.

“Actually, it would have been better if they didn’t. James are you… [won back over]?”

James just shook his head.

He said: “You don’t get to stop being a villain for two seconds and now you’re a hero.”

Alex Brooker then said: “You know what, nothing sums up 2020 more than the nation’s sweatheart being told to go [bleep] herself.”

Lorraine said: “It’s fine, I can take it!”

James quipped: “I’m not proud of it, Lorraine. Just can’t hear that man get defended especially by you.

“The danger of you saying it is people will go with it… ‘Oh yeah Lorraine likes penguins so Piers Morgan must be alright.'”
