Gethin Jones forced to awkwardly change Harry Styles question during Lizzo interview on The One Show

The One Show presenter Gethin Jones had to awkwardly reword a question he asked Lizzo about Harry Styles .

Jones co-presented the series alongside Lauren Laverne on Wednesday’s edition (4 May), which featured Lizzo as a guest.

The singer, via video link, discussed her appearance at the Met Gala earlier this week, as well her forthcoming new album.

However, the interview mmentarily hit a wall when Jones brought up the subject of Styles, whom Lizzo performed with at Coachella last month.

“We know your last gig pretty much would have been Coachella, performing with Harry Styles,” he said, adding: “You’re mates now – how come you’re mates with Harry? What’s going on there?”

Lizzo, seeming to think Jones was throwing her friendship with Styles into question, repeated the queston back to him in an incredulous manner, laughing. “What did you say?”

Jones apologised, stating: “Sorry, that was the English terminology.” He then reworded the question asking: “Have you become friends with Harry Styles recently?”

Another one of the episode’s guest, radio DJ Sara Cox, was in the studio with Jones, and could be seen laughing at the gaffe.

Lizzo then replied to his question, stating: “Um, not recently. We’ve been cool for a minute. When he covered mys ong and then I covere dhis song, we’ve bene firend siwhtr eahc othe rna dfast friends.”

At the end of the interview, Jones referred to the awkward moment, quipping: “’Cool for a minute.’ We’ll be ‘cool for a minute’ with Sara very shortly.”

Lizzo’s new album, titled Special, is out on 15 July.
