When current presenters Alex Scott and Jermaine Jenas introduced Matt – who was sitting on a rickshaw – she said: “Can I just say it’s lovely to be back…

“With all the crew and everybody, it’s lovely to see you all, it really is.”

Jermaine then said: “It’s changed a bit…

“Yeah, it’s like going round a relative’s and they’ve redecorated.”

How did viewers react to seeing Matt on the show again?

After seeing Matt in his former environment, it didn’t take long for viewers to plead with him to come back.

“Come back Matt, all is forgiven! These two muppets can’t present for toffee! #TheOneShow,” one wrote.

Another pleaded: “Oh stay Matt Baker! Please stay!

“Why couldn’t the BBC have given you [Gary] Lineker money [cry-face emoji].”

A third made a comment about the current incarnation of the show.

They wrote: “Matt Baker must have been horrified with the state of his old show #TheOneShow.”
