Debbie McGee, 60, got into an awkward situation while presenting her show on BBC Radio Berkshire last weekend. The Strictly Come Dancing finalist took the opportunity to make a cheeky joke when she introduced her co-star Rob Lilley’s sports report. Debbie told her listeners: “It’s time to get the sport and the sport this morning is with Rob Lilley, but he doesn’t look like a lily.” The TV and radio personality then burst into a fit of giggles as she exclaimed: “Sorry Rob!”
Oh it just came out of my mouth, I’m sorry.
Rob seemed slightly perplexed by the insult as he replied: “I don’t even know what that means.”
Explaining her comment, Debbie answered: “A lily, a flower!”
However, Rob was unimpressed by the remark as he added: “What does that mean? Me, dainty?”
In spite of her co-host’s aggrieved response, the former magician’s assistant continued the joke as she mischievously said: “Listen, Petal.
“Oh it just came out of my mouth, I’m sorry!”
Rob went on to quiz the laughing star: “Shall I go home or do you want me to do the sport?”
