If the UK preparing to welcome its third prime minister in two months wasn’t ridiculous enough for you, an appearance from quirky comedian Harry Hill on BBC Breakfast on Monday amid the inexplicable crisis in the Conservative Party should do it.
The TV Burp star sat on the red sofa to talk to presenter Victoria Fritz and promote his first solo tour in 10 years, Pedigree Fun. He was also accompanied by his puppet “son”, Gary.
The interview, which lasted around eight minutes, began with Hill sniffing the sofa, before being asked about the current political situation and what his plans were after the tour finishes in January.
“I do Junior Bake Off, have you seen that,” replied Hill, who paused for a moment for Fritz to respond before adding “no, she hasn’t.”
Fritz ended up concluding the interview by saying it had "been a long day already".
Others, meanwhile, have rushed to Hill’s defence, backing his unusual comedic style:
\u201cThis new @bbcbreakfast presenter lady is struggling to cope with an on-form Harry Hill. She doesn't seem to have a natural wit & sense of humour and she's killing the vibe stone-dead. \n\nNaga & Charlie would've run with it & the section would've been non-stop hilarity.\u201d
\u201cI\u2019ve just discovered, after 30 years, that some people are somehow capable of actually disliking Harry Hill, the ultimate comedy skeleton key. Every single one of them has the wit & brains of a smear of cat sick on a tax inspector\u2019s slipper, but apparently these freaks do exist.\u201d

\u201cMe coming for anyone slagging off Harry Hill this morning x\u201d
\u201cPeople are discussing Harry Hill, just like to say I would die for this man, TV burp was my childhood. Also, BBC Breakfast Presenter just was not great... it wasn't Harry making it awkward, it was her not understanding his comedy or how to conduct an interview around his chaos\u201d
