The Accidental Patridge account is easily one the best things on Twitter, capturing the most awkward and cringe things that are said on TV each day.

It never ceases to be hilarious, but it's possible that a clip that the account shared on Thursday is the funniest and most awkward thing you'll ever see.

The 11-second video sees Sky Sports At the Races presenter Derek Thompson cut to one of his colleagues at what appears to be a stable, before saying:'ve been joined by a beautiful lady.

Yep. We can't think of anything more awkward for a live television presenter. It's almost as if it is a sketch taken straight from an Alan Partridge episode.

The clip, which judging by the studio, graphics, clothes and grainy footage, appears to be from at least ten years ago. However, it was shared this week by Twitter user Chris Napthine and subsequently went viral, having been viewed more than 3 million times.

Needless to say, the reactions to it have been that of hilarity and astonishment.
