Orlando appeared on the show to chat to hosts Matt Baker and Michelle Ackerley about his new film, Unlocked, which he stars alongside Michael Douglas. He joined comedian Susan Calman, who chatted about her new quiz show – The Boss.
Last week, Orlando posted a sweet tribute on Instagram to his ex-wife, actress Miranda Kerr, as she celebrated her 34th birthday. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY to an amazing mother, co-parent, and friend," the actor wrote, alongside an image of a wooden plank which read, "I love you mum" - clearly, a gift from their son Flynn, five.

The former couple have stayed on good terms since their split in 2013 after three years of marriage. In November, Miranda - who is engaged to Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel - revealed that she fell into a "really bad depression" following the end of her relationship with the Lord of the Rings star. "My mum used to call me a 'giggling Gert' because I was always laughing, even in my sleep," she told ELLE Canada. "When Orlando and I separated, I actually fell into a really bad depression. I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person."
The Australian model confessed that their five-year-old son's happiness will always come first, no matter what. "The most important thing is that when he has his time with me, we have quality time together, and when he's with his dad, he has quality time with him," she added. "And it works out really well because I book in my photo shoots for the time he's with his dad, and the rest of the time I just get to be a mum."
