Emma, 42, and Paddy, 45, gave BBC viewers a run down of the schedule for tonight’s Comic Relief 2019 telethon, with the blonde struggling to hide her delight about the cast of Magic Mike Live performing later on in the evening.
As Paddy revealed the upcoming schedule, Emma jumped in on several occasions to tease the upcoming routine by the half-naked male dancers.
Jokingly becoming increasingly frustrated, Paddy told his co-host: “You need to rein it in Willis, this is a a family show,” to which Emma agreed with a cheeky grin other face.
“Ladies out there, you don’t want to see a load of half-naked men gyrating on the stage, do ya?” Paddy asked the audience, as he faced a chorus of cheers.
“They do,” Paddy remarked as he laughed at the response, before going on to add what else viewers could expect form the evening of entertainment, all in aid of charity.
Whereas Paddy joked about his co-host’s excitement at the male stripper segment coming up on the show, viewers at home seemed a little more distracted by Emma’s blonde locks.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer posted: “Is it just me or does Emma Willis look uncannily like Jack Frost #ComicRelief.”
Another added: “Emma Willis as a blonde? I dig it #ComicRelief.”
Following the host’s introduction to this evening’s events, Comic Relief patron and comedian Lenny Henry, 60, to explain why it was so important the fundraising event is still going, 30 years after it first launched.
