Awkward moment presenter makes arm comment to Paralympian with one hand

Awkward moment presenter makes arm comment to Paralympian with one hand

Channel 4's Sunday Brunch presenter Tim Lovejoy directed the accidental comment at Paralympic champion Lauren Steadman

Channel 4 presenter Tim Lovejoy accidentally made an awkward 'arm comment' towards Paralympic champion Lauren Steadman, who has one hand.

Today's (August 27) Sunday Brunch was certainly an eventful one as the studio panel featured actor Philippa Dunne, TV presenter Anna Williamson, comedian Jamali Maddix, singer Claire Richards and Steadman.

Watch below as Steadman embarrasses Lovejoy and the whole studio bursts out laughing:

On today's show, co-host Simon Rimmer was missing once again as Lovejoy was joined by T4 presenter Miquita Oliver.

And many were pleased to Oliver back on their screens.

"Listening to Miquita this morning is transporting me back to the good old T4 days," one viewer said.

Another added: "Love seeing @miquitaoliver on #Sundaybrunch."

However, it seems that Lovejoy is still adjusting to the presenter change as he made an absolute blooper while trying to describe cooking techniques to Paralympian Steadman.

"Did you get a brown paper bags and do that," explains Lovejoy while making arm movements with both of his hands.

Quick-witted Steadman replied: "I only got one hand," as the whole began creasing.

Red-faced Lovejoy apologised instantly: "Sorry. I'm so sorry Lauren, I'm so sorry, I'm so embarrassed."

Steadman was more than fine with the exchange and has him on toast throughout the show.

Taking to X (Twitter) later on, the 30-year-old said she was still laughing at the incident.

"I am dying inside still," she wrote.

Commenting on the awkward blunder, one viewer said: "Quality Blooper!!"

Another added: "Bless him x."

To more serious matters, elsewhere in the show, Lovejoy explained that Rimmer - who has faced family tragedy - was missing because he was 'poorly'.

The presenter's father recently passed away.

Appearing on Steph's Packed Lunch, Rimmer thanked the NHS staff who assisted with his dad's end-of-life care.

He said: "Yeah, unfortunately, my dad passed away last Thursday.

"I’ve always, always loved the NHS but every single person that was involved at the end of my dad’s life.

"Not just for him and the care that he got, but us as family, in his final hours. They were just amazing, they could not have been more supportive.

"Just a massive thank you, thank you, thank you, to everybody at Arrowe Park Hospital who really just made my dad's final hours incredible. They really, really did."
