Joanna Lumley wasn’t the only A-lister guests taking a spot on the famous green sofas earlier this evening as former One Direction singer Niall Horan joined the discussion. The One Show’s Alex Jones and co-host Chris Ramsey began to quiz pop star Niall about life as a solo artist and life on the road which led to a surprising discussion with Joanna about rockstar Rod Stewart on the BBC show.
Alex started the conversation: “Now we heard, Joanna, on the music theme, that this song which we’re going to play now was dedicated to you.”
The One Show studios than began to fill with the sounds of Rod Stewart hit Girl from the North Country.
The song was a cover of a single made famous by Bob Dylan some years before Rod recorded it.
Joanna left The One Show hosts on tenterhooks as they awaited her answer.
