Following the mishap, Richard's co-stars Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard played it cool

When it comes to live TV, there's always the possibility that things might go wrong, and in an earlier interview on Friday's show, Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard were left in a fit of giggles following their chat with Succession actor, Brian Cox.

During the live television interview, Brian was entertaining the hosts with an anecdote about his character, Logan Roy, on the hit HBO and Sky show, when he made something of a sweeping statement and apologised for the cheeky comment.
