Mel Giedroyc revealed on The Jonathan Ross Show that she was once left unimpressed by Sue Perkins when her broadcasting partner failed to show up on time for a meeting at ITV. The stars admitted that they had been caught up in “a couple of snips” over the years, but were quick to insist that their disagreements have never escalated into full-blown “rows”. 

Comedy duo Mel, 53 and Sue, 52, appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show this week to promote their new comedy series Hitmen: Reloaded. 

While discussing their new show, the stars opened up about arguments they had experienced in the past. 

When Jonathan, 61, asked the pair if they had ever fallen out, they replied candidly. 

“We’ve had a couple of snips,” Mel admitted, with Sue adding: “Mild skirmishes. Not rows. Maybe a dry eye-roll.”

At this point, Mel decided to share one story in particular that tested their friendship, after her pal Sue potentially jeopardised a meeting the two were due to attend at the ITV studios. 

She hit back: “There was more than that, mate. Actually in this very building – in reception. 

“We arranged to meet, let’s say it was 10am. I was there 20 minutes to – always early. 

“This was a tense morning, I think we were due to have a meeting with somebody about something,” Mel continued. 

“She rolls in…18 minutes late. I am livid. When I’m livid I just go very, very jolly and very, very passive aggressive.”

The stars then proceeded to discuss their new series Hitmen: Reloaded, which sees the two actresses do their fair share of arguing. 

Speaking about the show Sue said: “It’s about two middle aged hit women who spend a lot of time bickering in the van and occasionally do quite nasty fight sequences and blow people’s heads off.”

Sue also revealed that both her and Mel perform their own stunts, describing one time during filming where she “put her hip out” in the middle of a fight scene set in a toilet.

Meanwhile, Sue recently won the hearts of reality TV fans when she appeared as ‘Dragon’ on ITV’s The Masked Singer, which she described as “a really fab show”, adding that she “loved it”. 

At this point, presenter Jonathan turned to his other guests, which included David Walliams and Louis Theroux, to ask if they would ever take part. 

David pointed out that while he didn’t believe he could sing, a “lack of talent” had never stopped him before. 

Meanwhile, documentary presenter Louis admitted that while he “hasn’t got a brilliant voice”, the journalist does “like to think he’s a good dancer” and even suggested he should go on Strictly.

Mel and Sue are probably best known for hosting BAFTA Award-winning series The Great British Bake Off, before it left the BBC and moved to Channel 4 in 2016.  

Previously, the pair presented the lunchtime chat shows Light Lunch and Late Lunch on Channel 4.

The second season of Hitmen, subtitled Reloaded, first premiered on Sky Comedy on Wednesday September 29th at 9pm.

The Jonathan Ross Show, Saturday at 9:30pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
