The Most Awkward Celebrity Interviews In Popworld History
When boozy arguments break out in the pub over “the funniest British comedy show ever”, one title is always criminally absent.
We are, of bloody course, talking about Channel 4’s early-noughties, early-morning charts show Popworld. Fronted by the anarchic Simon Amstell and Miquita Oliver, Popworld could only loosely be called a music show.
Sure, there were lip-synced performances, and dramatic chart announcements, but it mainly functioned as a conduit for Simon Amstell to take the piss out of celebrities to their face.
There was the time that he asked Britney Spears if she’d ever licked a battery…
And when he grilled The Kooks over Katie Melua...
Who could forget the time that he tried to tickle Gwen Stefani?
When he asked Will Young questions that they’d forgotten to ask Lemar...
And when Simon got angry at The Killers for not bringing along Brandon Flowers…
We could keep on doing this, but there’s only so many videos on YouTube and, tbh, it’s all very good. Watch this 2005 Best Of…
But despite all of of his efforts, Simon didn’t achieve the most awkward moment in Popworld history. That title goes to Alex Zane, his short-lived successor (like, the show got cancelled. He didn’t die), in this interview with Avril Lavigne…
