Ant McPartlin was quick to laugh off a quip from Richard Madeley during the This Morning interview.
During their chat, Richard, 63, questioned the presenting duo about times their live TV shows have gone wrong, asking them: "Have you ever had a breakdown?"
Before they could answer, however, Richard cheekily added to Ant: "Not personally I mean..."
While it was a slightly awkward moment, Ant and Dec were quick to laugh it off, with Ant even joining in, telling Richard: "Well, that has happened!"
To this, Richard told Ant through laughter: "We've all been there!"
While some people were left cringing, other viewers loved the hilarious interview.
One person tweeted: "Loved that interview with ant and Dec Richard is priceless."
Another added: "Can we have Richard and Judy always interviewing Ant and Dec because that was brilliant #ThisMorning."
During their interview, Ant and Dec teased some big guests on this series of Saturday Night Takeaway, including Mark Wahlburg, Anthony Joshua and Craig David.
The pair also reminisced about their careers together, and mentioned they will soon be celebrating 30 years since they started working together.
Dec said: "Everyday I get to go to work with my best mate, we have the best job in the world".
Talking about rumours of a sitcom for the pair, they explained that while they've spoken about it for a few years, they are hesitant as they wouldn't want to get it wrong.
