The actor, best known about ‘The Partridge Family’, appeared via videolink to chat to Eamonn and Ruth Langsford, but took offence when they began to question him about his recent bankruptcy.
After accusing them of trying to “rubbish” him, and scolding Ruth for interrupting him, the interview continued to get increasingly more awkward, as he hit back: “I’m sorry, I don’t understand what you’re asking me about my ‘debts’... I’m not going to discuss that.”

Trying to lighten the mood, the awkward chat culminated in Eamonn asking him which of his hits best sums up his current mood, a joke which appeared to go over the American star’s head.
However, he didn’t leave it there, and later in the show, Eamonn made light of the interview, during another videolink, this time with presenter Andi Peters.

During a segment about wine-tasting, Eamonn struggled to hear Andi’s question, joking: “I’m getting like David Cassidy here.”
He then proceded to put on an American accent and imitating their uncomfortable interview, asking: “What? Sorry? What did you say to me? What does the wine taste like that? Why did you ask me that? You people!”
Ruth also joked about the incident, claiming: “Of all the days, I need a drink today.”
Eamonn referenced the interview on his Twitter page after the show, comparing it to a similar appearance David Blaine made on breakfast television years earlier.
