Some viewers of The One Show have said they found themselves ‘switching off’ the programme as they made the same complaint about the show’s latest guests.
The BBC One magazine programme returned on Thursday night (April 28) with Alex Jones and Ronan Keating. They welcomed comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan onto the programme, along with Bonnie Langford as the trio appeared live on the sofa in the studio.
Romesh and Rob were on the programme to chat about the new series of their show, Rob and Romesh Vs, while Bonnie was celebrating 50 years on stage. However, viewers were quickly heading to social media to complain about the guests, claiming they were “too loud” as the show descended in chaos.
After hearing about the time they interviewed the World’s Strongest Man, a preview clip of their new show was shown and Rob, 36, co-star Romesh, 44, and fellow guest Bonnie, 57, all began to talk over one another – leaving the hosts struggling with what to do.
Ronan ended up teasing Rob over his singing ability and quipped: “I think you need to think about your tuning a little bit,” as Bonnie chimed in: “You were in a musical though, anyway,” noting Rob’s performance in Cinderella alongside singer Camila Cabello. Rob then interrupted: “I was in a Hollywood film,” as Romesh then started to talk over him: “Thanks Bonnie, I was also in that film.”
Rob shouted back: “He was a mouse, doesn’t really count. I was with Camila Cabello,” as Romesh replied: “So was I!” before adding: “Bonnie, if you’re bigging someone up, do your research. Both of us were in the film.”
@MissNortonC tweeted: “#TheOneShow appears to be 5 people screaming incoherently over each other. Time for a bath.”
“Can The One Show explain how we are meant to understand what is being said when 3 people are talking at once. Chaos. I turned sound off. #TheOneShow,” @SaxSurely commented.
@balkadog replied: “Alex should have interrupted! It was unusual for her not to take control. Ridiculous.”
“#TheOneShow what a bloody racket… turned over,” @Yvonne739 complained.
But as ever, not everyone agreed as @ForestDMorgan tweeted: “The chaotic energy of Rob and Romesh on #TheOneShow is quality even if the show is the lowest of the low.”
“Put #theoneshow on to see @robbeckettcomic & @RomeshRanga I’m crying laughing,” @CrossStitchEm shared.
