The 53-year-old said: "A lot of the American stars aren't approachable. It's ridiculous what one guy said to me once about Rihanna.

"I said, 'Hello Rihanna, how you are doing? My name is Eamonn. I will be doing the interview with you', and this guy, he banged me on the shoulder and said, 'Excuse me if you want to speak to Miss Rihanna you speak to me'.

"And I said, 'I am terribly sorry. I am so sorry. Are you on the programme?' He said, 'No I am not', and then used an expletive."

He also claimed that Meg Ryan should "not be exposed" to live interviews.

"Meg Ryan is the woman who should genuinely not be exposed to live broadcast interviews," he added.

"Because she psychologically doesn't want to be there and I do think she has got a problem and she doesn't want to talk about herself.

"Therefore be warned: anybody that gets an interview with Meg Ryan, just don't bother."
