Stars have since come out to console the actor, telling him it wasn't his fault and reminding him of their embarrassing TV moments.

Peep Show's Robert Webb wrote: "If you ever read it, you’ll find I based a whole book on the idea I was basically Luke Skywalker. Now then, take that probably quite big fee from Objective and relax and do a couple of plays this year, young man. Comedy grandad has spoken."

Meanwhile, Vernon Kay joked: "Mate, you didn’t host “Splash” you’ll be fine."
