Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy shocked Sunday Brunch viewers when they walked off set after they shared their shameful secret on air.

The popular co-stars welcomed Jon Richardson, Lucy Beaumont, Anna Williamson and Ashley Roberts onto the show during this week’s instalment of the popular Channel 4 morning programme.

But it was the 40 year old who grabbed the eyes of the nation as she appeared on the show in a striking neon pink shirt which she synched up above her waist which she tied in a knot and fashioned into a crop top.

She teamed the bold shirt with a matching pair of neon trousers which she accessorised with a barbie pink pair of glittery high heels which she proudly showcased on the show.

The radio presenter joined the TV chefs on the show to promote her new show The Real Dirty Dancing which she hosts alongside close pal Keith Lemon in the heart of Norfolk.

The dynamic duo put the latest batch of budding celebrities to the test as they put on their dancing shoes and attempt to recreate the classic dance routine from the 1987 movie.

As she explained the show to unaware viewers at home, she was surprised to learn her co-hosts have never seen the beloved musical as she fumed at their ignorance and ordered them to leave the show.

After they confirmed their shameful secret on air, the pair hung their heads in shame and quickly walked off set as the cast and crew could be heard giggling out of frame.

Tim introduced the segment saying: “Let’s talk about your new show, The Real Dirty Dancing, explain the concept for me before we look at a clip.”

She excitedly explained: “Yes! I mean we all love the film don’t we? Dirty Dancing” before the pair confessed neither of them had watched the widely renowned musical on air.

She fumed: “Get out of here – the door’s there, you’re out! What? You both haven’t seen it? How have you not seen it?”

It was at this point that the pair shamefully walked off set as the cameraman showed the pair committing to the bit as they walked off set while Ashley sat on her own.

When she asked the pair why they hadn’t watched the epic love story, Tim gave a sorrowful excuse, saying: “‘Cause it was 1987, I was busy, I had stuff to do, I was about town, I don’t know.”

And they weren’t alone as viewers swarmed to social media to react to the surprising news as many of them confessed they also hadn’t watched the beloved movie.
