Simon Rimmer: Jason Manford reacts to Sunday Brunch co-host’s ‘fired’ blunder live on-air

Simon Rimmer, 56, and Tim Lovejoy, 51, were joined on Sunday Brunch by comedian Jason Manford, 38, to chat about his new game show today. As the British star was being introduced, Tim appeared to get tongue-tied which caused the studio to go up in laughter.

Speaking to viewers, the Channel 4 presenter welcomed Jason onto the show before making the slip up.

Tim said: “Welcome back to Sunday Brunch Live. We’re chatting now with Jason Manford.”

He explained the comedian is gearing up to front a brand new primetime game show for BBC One.

But the Sunday Brunch host couldn’t seem to get his words out and teased they he may be getting “fired” because of his errors.

Tim said: “You’re currently hosting a new game shoe, I mean show. It’s called err…”

Jason interjected: “You’re on fire today,” before chuckling at the Sunday Brunch presenter.

Tim replied: “I know. If I can get through this show without being fired.”

The comedian added: “I feel like that every week.”

His co-star Simon seemingly appeared to not have much sympathy for his colleague as he laughed off his mishap.

Meanwhile, the presenting duo were taken aback after their guest Danny McBride made a candid admission about the rapper Kanye West.

The actor revealed he chatted with the hip hop heavyweight about playing him in an autobiographical movie.

The US star explained: “He wanted to do a movie about the story of his life and he wanted me to play him.”

After Kanye visited Danny at his home in Charleston, the comedian also divulged his son’s reaction to the rapper being in their home.

He continued: “My son asked, ‘Do you think Kanye wants to watch me play Fortnite?’”

“So we just sat there and finished watching my son play Fortnite,” Danny finished.

The bizarre tale left the studio guests in giggles as the Sunday Brunch hosts were left shocked by the funny anecdote.
