He made his latest comments on the cookery section of the Good Morning show, after he went to chop a tomato for a quiche but realised cookery host Jeanette Thomas had already done it.

He said: "You naughty girl! I would say I am going to smack your bottom but, I would love to do that, but we are not allowed to on TV."

As Thomas tried to laugh off his comments, Roache added: "There's life in the old dog yet."

Speaking on the show, Roache later discussed his beliefs as a member of spiritual group the Pure Love movement.

He said: "However horrible somebody is, if you love them, pour love back at them. That will help them to recognise who they are."
