BBC Breakfast takes cheeky turn as Jon Kay grills Strictly star about ‘strong, powerful thighs’


BBC Breakfast became awkward after a Strictly Come Dancing star was welcomed on the show.

The show took cheeky turn as hosts Jon Kay and Sally Nugent welcomed cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason to the show after he wowed Strictly crowds with his performance last weekend.

John asked a rather cheeky question making things awkward

Sheku awkwardly laughed off John’s remarks

Sheku was promoting his new album and did a special intimate performance for the hosts and BBC viewers.

After the performance Jon said to him: “You must have incredibly powerful and strong thighs?”

Looking a little embarrassed, Sheku answered: “Oh it’s not that very heavy.”

Things got awkward in the studio so Sally chimed in: “Oh, I bet that’s a question you’ve never been asked before – we like to bring you the important stuff on BBC Breakfast.”

Sheku recently performed on Strictly with Zak Abel where Amy Dowden and Nikita Kuzmin danced to the track.

The professional dancers performed exceptionally well to Sheku’s track.

This isn’t the first time BBC Breakfast has suffered an awkward on-air moment.

Earlier on today, BBC Breakfast fans were left stunned as they spotted a “cheesed off” reporter grinding his teeth after thinking the cameras had cut.

Nick Eardley was on hand to discuss Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s impending Autumn Statement.

Nick then finished his report by saying: “That statement on Thursday is going to matter a lot to the country, the Prime Minister but also all of our finances as well.”

As Sally thanked him for his report, the screen split into two with Nick on the left and a lady in a different location appearing on the right.
