Andrew appeared to not realise the gaffe and host Phillip Schofield stepped in.

Phil said: "Andrew, you've turned your camera round."

Andrew, you've turned your camera round.

Andrew's daughter is then seen running out of another room waving her hands in the air as she came to his rescue.

Andrew said: "Oh I have! Sorry about that. I've got my lovely assistant [his daughter] Georgina, don't worry."

Phil joked: "Thank God someone wasn't sitting naked at the table on the other side of that."

He added: "Serious topic Andrew, if you could possibly switch that round. It's a lovely kitchen by the way."

Andrew then swiftly moved on to what he was speaking about.

However, moments later, he suffered another blunder when his camera went blurry.

Phil said: "What the hell have you done now?!" as Holly Willoughby burst into laughter.

Phil told Andrew: "You've gone blurred now. You've gone behind some sort of bathroom window. I don't know what's going on with that.

"You're providing a lot of fun for us. It's a very serious subject but this is like the comedy show going on here."

Meanwhile, during the segment, Matthew admitted he was "very angry" over Brits not self-isolating amid the coronavirus pandemic.

What did he say?

He said: "The reality is, these are extraordinary conditions and we have to stay at home.

"I haven't been out of this house at all now for three days. We're going to walk the dog later, we have a neighbour who walks the dog.

"It's getting to the point where I'm getting very angry about people who aren't self-isolating."
