What did you miss?
The clip played on Friday’s instalment of the BBC show (22 September) was from CCTV footage and showed an unsuspecting man approaching a shop.
Out of the blue a pigeon hurtled towards him and smacked into the side of his head.
What, how, and why?
As the clip came up, Munchetty could be heard asking her co-presenter Ben Thompson: “Right, you need to explain what’s happening.”
“So, a pigeon flew into a man’s head when he went to the shops,” Thompson said, clearly amused.
“I don’t know why this amuses me so much. Neither pigeon nor man were hurt, we should be really clear.
“This is Michael Spears, he’s from Nottingham. He described it as being like being whacked full pelt with a feather pillow.”

“It was comedy gold and too good not to share!” he added.
Munchetty could not control her laughter and was heard chuckling and gasping.
“I’m sweating, I’m sorry!” she exclaimed.
Turning to Thompson as she tried to regain her composure, she went on: “It’s like when you watch this video and you know you are not supposed to laugh, it makes you laugh even more.”
Her co-host laughed: “It’s the way the pigeon sort of comes to and sort of saunters off, it's quite happy.”
“Pigeon is absolutely fine,” Munchetty agreed.
Thompson asked if they could have another look at the clip.
“Please,” Munchetty chimed in.
The TV stars found it as funny as the first time around, with both roaring with laughter again as the bird hit the man.
“I tell you what though as well, it's really good CCTV coverage,” Munchetty said.
“It’s better than some of the filming we do!” joked Thompson.
Munchetty told viewers she was “really hot” after the hilarious segment.
“I’m going to have to get make-up in to sort this out,” she said.
What did viewers think?
Viewers were just as tickled, with one joking on X, formerly Twitter: "'The pigeon and the man are fine!' needs to be on a t-shirt."
Someone else said it was "brilliant" and another fan posted: "Happy Friday and watch out for those low flying pigeons."
