John then said: "Oh dear. There's a helicopter landing right now. I've been to some severely strange places in my life, but I'll keep on going I suppose. As long as you guys are alright. Pasta's cooking. It's fresh pasta. The carb house here has a heliport, and I didn't know he was going to come in. But anyway, we might as well keep on going."

When the clip was posted on Twitter, fans were in hysterics.
