During his time on the show promoting his new film The Toll, Ranvir, 44, who recently had to apologise after a guest accidentally swore on live TV, spoke about Iwan's love for music and asked him about a concert he was to perform with his band this coming weekend.

Fans of the morning programme were left in disbelief at the lack of correct information the presenters were given about Iwan before interviewing him.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "@iwanrheon ….I felt so sorry for him, he seemed so confused as everything they said was inaccurate," alongside a woozy face emoji.

Another said: "Jesus wept! Those researchers at #GMB got everything wrong," followed by three crying with laughter emojis as a third chimed: "@GMB Iwan Rheon"s interview is a car crash".

"@GMB telling Iwan Rheon he once wanted to be in Eurovision. @iwanrheon not having any of it. Embarrassing level of research. Gone to absolute sh** since @piersmorgan left. #gmb #researchyourguests," another remarked.

While a fifth added: "Awkward interview. Constantly interrupting Iwan Rheon and clearly haven't done their research properly with the daft questions they're asking! #GMB".
