Fun Lovin' Criminals star Huey Morgan stunned fans of BBC quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks on Monday night (04Nov13) after complaining about song lyrics questions he was asked to complete by guest hosts Jordan 'Rizzle' Stephens and Harley 'sylvester' Alexander-Sule and smashing a ceramic mug. The singer, who is also a BBC DJ, appeared annoyed during the 'next lines' segment of the show, after the quiz masters, who make up U.K. rap duo Rizzle Kicks, kept asking him to complete lines from his own songs.
And when the fun loving hosts asked his team to complete a line from Kavana's I Can Make You Feel Good, Morgan flipped, hurled his mug to the table in front of him and yelled, "Who's that?"
As teammates Phill Jupitus and Laura Whitmore protected themselves from shards of shattered ceramics, Stephens asked, "Why are you annoyed by the next line game?" prompting angry Morgan to snarl, "Just go on with this... I just feel like a punk, I'm sorry".
But the co-host started taunting the singer, stating, "Huey, it's the game, bro... You don't have to smash a mug in my hair... Let's carry on, you're upset, I know."
Morgan then threatened, "You ain't seen me upset," prompting Alexander-Sule to introduce the next game advising comedian Noel Fielding and his team to try not to win or "Huey might get a bit cross".
Morgan's team eventually won the game and the Fun Lovin' Criminals star walked off the set as he the co-hosts were closing the show.
Blur bassist Alex James is set to add TV presenter to his resume after signing up to host a spin-off of U.K. comedy quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks. The rocker is set to front What A Load Of Buzzcocks, which will feature a retrospective look at the history of pop music over the last 17 years through old clips of the series.
James says, "I've always been a big fan of the show and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the highlights from the past 17 years."
The Doctor Who star was appearing in a show when he became desperate to go to the bathroom, but bravely soldiered on with his performance.
Revealing the incident on British comedy show Never Mind The Buzzcocks on Monday night (19Dec11), he explained, "I have a confession to make. I have c**pped myself onstage. I was wearing white polyester pants... I was singing a song and I thought I would fart and I went and completely had follow-through all down (my trousers).
"The person who was my understudy had put laxative in my water a couple of hours prior. I was (dancing), and I thought (as a) true professional, 'Don't stop the number', but I could see the people in the front row (noticing)."
Three-person teams of celebrities and permanent panelists face off in a series of music parlor games that get snarky and irreverent. Games include "Song Intros" (two players improvise the introduction to a well-known song to their teammate who has to guess the song) and "Next Lines" (players finish the lyric to a popular song). Each game is individually acored and at the end of the four games the team with the most points wins -- nothing. A remake of a BBC2 series of the same name.
