Honestly, some celebs will do anything to boost ratings.
Eagle-eyed viewers couldn’t help but notice Simon had a hole in his jeans as he presented the Channel 4 show.
And it was in a rather unfortunate position...
Cue the inevitable double entendre....
And genuine concern...
We’re assured it’s actually Simon’s inner thigh on display, but at least he eventually noticed things were getting a little drafty down there.

The British rapper’s Sunday struggle on the live show made for uncomfortably relatable morning viewing.
“Just to warn you, I’m going to be extremely hung over,” he tweeted the previous evening.

Fellow guests joked that his hangover was “getting progressively worse” as the show went on – seeing Stephen’s delicate state aggravated by having to try each dish made on the show.
“I might need a sick bucket,” he admitted.
Always drink responsibly, people.
