Football analyst Chris Kamara joked: “Onions!” as the studio audience laughed.

Simon giggled as he replied: “I had a little cry this morning when the car was late picking me up Steph, and I thought I was going to be late getting here!

“I can cry at anything!”

He admitted that even trivial reality TV turns on the waterworks for him.

“I can cry at the results show for Strictly, I get really emotional and obviously football makes me cry tears of joy at times as well,” Simon shrugged.

Steph nodded as she noted: “It’s good to be able to err…” she made a hand gesture to signify the important of showing your emotions as Simon turned to the audience who were listening intently.

“I like the response from the [audience],” he said.

“Maybe I’ll do a calendar where I’m just crying!”

“Traffic bad so I’m running late.”

Simon went on to admit that many people are aware that running late is difficult for him to deal with.

The chef added: “Anyone who knows me knows I HATE being late.

“So if I looked stressed at 12.30 you know why.”

Fortunately, Simon eventually made it to the show to film his segment alongside host Steph.
