He added of the awkward moment: “This young lady came towards me and said, ‘I’m so sorry,’ usually when they come to me, they say, ‘Sorry, can I have a picture?’
“But this time, they came to me and said, ‘I’m so sorry, can I have a picture with Jamie please?’”
Laughing, Jamie chimed: “You was ready to go for it!”
Recalling his reaction to the female, he added: “[I said] Wow, why are you asking me? He’s here!”
Jamie’s co-host then joked that the fan may have believed Giovanni was Jamie’s bodyguard.
