Dan Walker didn't hesitate to cut off one BBC Breakfast guest when an interview headed in a slightly awkward direction.

Dan and co-host Louise Minchin were busy quizzing former Strictly Come Dancing star Ore Oduba about his new role in iconic musical The Rocky Horror Show, which is taking place at Southampton's Mayflower Theatre next month.

The legendary production has long since been known for its costumes and singalong potential, including main character Frank N. Furter's love of corsets.

Ore is set to play Brad, one half of the unsuspecting couple who wind up at Frank's castle after their car breaks down.

Speaking about his casting in the new production, Ore said: "All sorts of things happen in that castle. There's a transformation. And at the end of it, I come out wearing stockings, high heels and suspenders!"

Louise reflected on the audience's willingness to don their own costumes when heading to see the cult classic, which is when things turned slightly awkward.

"Enjoy the outfits!" Louise quipped as they prepared to say goodbye.

Ore responded: "You enjoy the outfits, Louise, when I play at the Manchester Royal Opera House! If I don't see you there, clad – and I'm talking to you, Dan Walker, as well-"

Which is when Dan cut in to interrupt: "Sorry, we've lost the line Ore! Sorry about that! Speak to you later on!"

Ore continued talking, but when he heard what Dan was saying, insisted: "No you haven't!"

"I've seen your corset before, Dan!" he continued.

"Back off!" Dan warned, as the trio shared a giggle.

Elsewhere on Wednesday's programme, Sally Nugent was interrupted during a live sporting broadcast from Wembley Stadium by a cardboard cutout falling onto her – knocking her microphone connection out.

The programme descended into chaos, quickly cutting back to Dan and Louise in the studio as Sally struggled to right the cutout figure of footie ace Raheem Sterling.

In the end, producer Charlye had to kneel behind Raheem to hold the cutout steady.

Charlye gave the camera a cheeky wave as Louise and Dan could be heard sharing a giggle in the studio.

"That's above and beyond! Give that girl a pay rise!" Louise joked.
