Things got a little bit X-rated on The Graham Norton Show's New Year's Eve special on Saturday night, when Graham Norton found himself yelling out the words: "I've c*m!"
Joining the host on the sofa this weekend were Hugh Laurie, Romesh Ranganathan, and Leah Williamson, alongside Olivia Colman and Michael Ward, who were promoting their upcoming film Empire of Light.
The romantic film, set in 1980s England, tells the story of Hilary (Olivia), a retired, lonely woman who works at a cinema in a seaside town, and Stephen, (Micheal) a young man letting loose before he heads off to college.
As the two isolated and working together in the quiet cinema in what is still a prejudiced country, Hilary and Stephen form an unlikely romance.
The film features a few, well, intimate scenes between Olivia and Michael's characters, which they got through with the help of an intimacy coordinator.
Speaking to the actors on Saturday night, Graham asked: "What is that like, dealing with a third person?"
Olivia raved that the coordinator they had on set was 'amazing', while Michael agreed it was 'really helpful.'
The Crown star then continued: "It’s embarrassing, isn’t it? Trying to do a sex scene and there’s a load of bored people with wet weather gear holding up booms or texting.
"One note she gave which was very helpful - which you can all try in an awkward moment when you’re not feeling it - is, when you're orgasming it's like the sun is hitting your face."
The award-winning actor went on to demonstrate the expression she would make if the warm sun was shining on her face, sighing 'ahhh'.
Graham was still a little bit confused by the pointer, and asked Olivia: "What, squinting?"
Suddenly realising what she meant, he added: "Oh! I thought you meant...", before pretending to squint and shield his eyes from the sun.
While pulling the face, Graham couldn't help but jokingly shout out: "I've c**!", sending the whole couch, and the rest of the studio audience, into fits of laughter.
Catching himself out, the TV host told himself: "It’s family viewing on BBC One, stop it!"
Elsewhere in the interview, Graham asked the two stars if the age difference between them ever made sex scenes awkward - with Olivia being 48, and Michael being 25.
"There was one particular moment", Olivia recalled, "When I’m astride Micheal in a compromising and slightly embarrassing situation - well, I find it embarrassing, Micheal was very cool with everything.
"He said, 'It's my mum’s birthday today. And I said, 'Oh lovely, how old is she?'
"'43!' I went, 'Okay Micheal, stop talking.' I'm quite a chunk older than his mother."
