At the start of the programme, host Adam Hills introduced fellow comedian Alex Brooker before turning his attention to Josh.

He introduced him by joking: ‘The man who recently welcomed a new baby to the world, which means we literally know what he did last summer, Josh Widdicombe!’

Josh then started talking about the experience of becoming a father for the second time. He said: ‘I’ll take you through the whole story. I’ve had a baby; I can’t sleep, and I wish I hadn’t had a baby.

‘But luckily for you when I have had 12% of my required sleep, what I really want to do is rip the news to shreds.’

He also added: ‘I haven’t had a nap today; I was wondering if you and Alex could carry it for the first 15 minutes and then I will wake up for the guests?’

To which host Alex came back and joked: ‘Yeah, so like a normal show then?’

Back in 2019, Josh talked about marrying Rose during an appearance on Good Morning Britain.

As a photo of Josh and Rose flashed up on screen, Ben Shephard joked: ‘Punching as they say.’

The comedian laughed off the comment and went to talk about becoming a father while touring around the U.K. 

He said: ‘I can’t drink as much being a new dad. I went out for a few drinks when I was on tour in Scotland and got in at around 2am. 

‘I got to my hotel and my room key card didn’t work. I went downstairs and the receptionist told me I was the wrong hotel. I was so drunk I went to the wrong hotel in Edinburgh.’
