"Sam, I've been listening to you all morning, and you've been talking about the hats, the cocoa butter, but you didn't mention a speedo," she joked.

Sam and her other co-stars immediately burst out laughing as he then replied, in very revealing fashion: "Well, Robin, it is part of the very typical summer solstice kit and it is a gold lame one."

She responded: "You just took it to the next level," with Sam saying: "I can't stop, Robin. I'm like a six-year-old at a birthday party.

"I'm exhausted now from all this summer solstice stuff this morning," he shared, and his co-star simply began to give him a slow clap as she added: "Here's a slow clap for you this morning."
