Comic Relief is hit by a technical glitch as hosts Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness fall silent in stunned silence

ALESHA Dixon and Paddy McGuinness fell silent in stunned silence after Comic Relief was hit by a technical error – just 20 minutes into the show.

The hosts welcomed Mind Mangler – played by Henry Lewis – onto the stage just after Fantastic Beasts stars Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law surprised some school kids.

However, during Mind Mangler’s very brief appearance, viewers could still hear Eddie and Jude being over-dubbed.

The segment was quickly cut short with Alesha saying “Give it up for the Mind Mangler” before correcting herself and realizing there had been a “technical error”.

Viewers couldn’t help but notice the very fitting timing for things to go wrong, and wondered if it was planned all along.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “When Magic Goes Wrong… goes wrong. How embarrassing.”

Echoing her comments, someone else said, “Magic Goes Wrong goes wrong is literally the 2022 thing ever.”

While a third asked, “Is it wrong that I really can’t tell if that Mind Mangler part was really supposed to happen or if it was an actual technical error?”

At the start of the show, Paddy started proceedings and stunned his co-hosts with a rather rude joke.

As hundreds of red noses showered the audience, Lenny shouted, “It’s a nose shower,” but Paddy soon left his colleagues red-faced.

The Top Gear presenter quipped: “Oh no. No, sorry, sorry, sorry. Forgiveness. Buddy, it’s supposed to go on your nose.”

Then, in a breathtaking moment, Paddy shook his head before adding, “Sorry, that was my cousin.”

Almost immediately, Paddy’s fellow hosts looked embarrassed as he cracked what appeared to be an adult joke.
