Just 17 WTF Interviews From "The One Show"

Some of the interviews that take place before the features are very weird.

As you know, The One Show consists of a celebrity sitting on a sofa, hoping to plug a book or show or something, but being asked a lot of questions as well to segue the interview into a random feature:

And if the celebrity is not being interviewed, they are made to sit there whilst an expert is being interviewed.

It can lead to some really weird interviews and exchanges. Here are some of my favourite ones:

1. When Michael Sheen apparently inspired an item on bus routes after the interview had ended.

2. When Debbie Harry (aka. Blondie) was asked her opinions on chickens after a feature about chickens.

A feature about gas and electricity prices then followed.
