It’s been one year since Lewis Capaldi asked BBC news presenter if she’d requested a ‘rim’

People are still in stitches a year on after Lewis Capaldi brought up rimming on BBC Breakfast.
Feel like 2023's gone quickly? No, well this will make you feel like it's absolutely flown by. Remember when Capaldi sat down for some Breakfast chat with the BBC and ended up discussing rimming at 8:00am?
Here's a refresher of the iconic video:
Rather than waiting until off-camera, Capaldi wasted no time carrying on with a conversation he'd had with BBC Breakfast host Charlie Stayt backstage, reiterating he has 'great hair'.
Co-presenter, Naga Munchetty, then mouthed to Capaldi joking Stayt's hair is actually a wig, Capaldi making no effort to keep the joke private and questioning aloud: "It's a wig is it? Looks great."
Stayt returned the compliment, telling Capaldi he has 'great hair too' leading to a cheery high five from the singer, before the conversation then descended into 'chaos' when Munchetty got involved again.
Interrupting the blossoming bromance, Munchetty joked: "Would you like a room?"
"Would I what? I thought you said rim," Capaldi says. "I was like gheez."
Cue lots of awkward laughter from both Stayt, Munchetty and the camera crew behind the scenes.
Quickly changing the subject, Munchetty goes on to interject: "The time now, we're coming up to 9:00am, Lewis Capaldi's new single 'Forget Me' is out now. We're going to have a little word with Lewis. The headlines are coming up."
A year on and people definitely haven't forgotten about Capaldi or his appearance on the breakfast show - and won't be anytime soon.
At the time, Capaldi shared a clip of the appearance X - formerly known as Twitter - calling it a 'classic breakdown of communication'. The clip has since resurfaced on the platform, shared widely in the past few days.
The clip made Scott Bryan's 'WTF TV news moments from 2022,' the TV critic and broadcaster calling the incident 'chaos' and he also retweeted the video to mark it's one year anniversary.
People flocked to the post finding it just as funny now as they did back then.
One X user said: "Hope he's doing well and having a very well earned rest."
"He's a sweetheart," another added.
A third commented: "Love the idea of Naha[sic] propositioning him on live morning breakfast TV."
And a final resolved: "To this day, Charlie still doesn't understand what happened here."
