The presenter revealed that he doesn't think he will become 'Sir Jonathan Ross' because of his prank on Russell Brand's BBC Radio 2 show.

Ross told The Mirror: "I very much doubt I will get to be Sir Jonathan Ross.
"My slight error of judgment a few years ago has prohibited me from ever acquiring national treasure status."
In 2008, Ross and Brand left obscene voice messages on actor Andrew Sachs's answerphone detailing Brand's relationship with Andrew's grand-daughter Georgina Baillie.
The 52-year-old added: "But they did give me an OBE before the incident and didn't take it away afterwards. For that, I am eternally grateful."
Ross left the BBC in 2010 and started hosting The Jonathan Ross Show show on ITV.
He was recently involved in ITV's charity appeal Text Santa and played Family Fortunes against comedienne Jo Brand and her family.
