Graham put his foot in it.

GRAHAM NORTON CAUSED a bit of upset on Friday night when he seemingly upset an entire country.

Graham had Anthony Joshua on his couch, along with Tom Hanks and Maisie Williams. Joshua talked about upcoming fights, including New Zealander Joseph Parker.


A photo of Joseph flashed up on the screen, to which Graham said:

Can I just say? That looks like it’s going to be an easy fight. He’s the king of pies! He must be a world-class athlete, but he doesn’t look like one, does he?

It looks like everything is grand now though, with Parker dusting off the remarks on Twitter

Graham even thanked him for it


The fight has since been announced for March, so I guess we’ll get to see Parker’s strength for ourselves.
