Recalling the hilarious moment, Kate said: "First of all, I smelt really bad because I'd run to the event and it was on Tuesday when there were crazy downpours, so I got absolutely soaked and when I went into the warm room I started to smell a bit like a wet dog.

"You will see it go out on air tonight that my hair is like that scene with Monica from Friends.

"So I was already feeling a bit sweaty and uncomfortable and [Charles] came along."

Kate then admitted that her knowledge of Greek classics comes from Marvel's Avengers franchise and assumed that Charles was referring to Chris Hemsworth's Thor. 

"I thought he meant Thor and he got it wrong but he hadn't," she said.

"He was doing proper classics," added Ben. 

Referencing a picture which saw Charles and Kate laughing together, Kate jokingly said: "Charles is laughing at the thunderclap and probably wondering what the smell is at that moment."
