Good Morning Britain is getting some grief online after Fatboy Slim (real name Norman Cook) was asked a very awkward and ill-timed question on the show today (October 19).

Co-presenter Charlotte Hawkins had been speaking to the superstar DJ about his charity walking marathon, before asking him about his estranged wife Zoe Ball. Norman was palpably uncomfortable and as it turns out, viewers found it ridiculous too.

Charlotte said: "Also we've got to have a mention for Zoe, who's going to be the first female to host the Breakfast Show on Radio 2, after being the first female to host the one on Radio 1 as well.

"It's good going for her isn't it, you must be very proud?"

The musician's response was short and sweet, as he clearly wanted to put this one to bed early.

"Yeah, she's doing well. Well done Zo," he replied.

Check out some of the fiercely confused viewer reactions on social media here:

Back in 2016, the pair issued a joint statement on Zoe's Twitter page regarding their separation.

"After many exciting adventures together over the last 18 years we have come to the end of our rainbow," it explained. "We are still great friends and will continue to support each other and raise our beautiful children together, living next door but one. X Zoe & Norm."
