Just as he was settling down on the sofa all ready for his showbiz slot on Friday's episode of This Morning he got a phone call from his home alarm system.
"I'm being burgled!" he told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, holding his phone up to the camera and saying, "Can you see that?" as the Caller ID for the alarm system flashed up.
"If you're burgling my house, my mum is on the way round!"
He added: "I'm hoping it's just the washing horse."
But perking back up and referencing four years to the day since his X Factor judges' houses, the presenter joked: "I might be being burgled but I've had a good four years!"
Thankfully it seemed all was okay as he updated viewers at the end of his slot, saying: "Just to confirm, if you were worried at home, [my mum] Linda is at the house. She's there! Watch out!
Good old mum!
