Dan Stevens wins all the awards for this glorious takedown of Boris Johnson on The One Show
Actor Dan Stevens, star of Downton Abbey, earned himself a different kind of place in TV history when he appeared on the One Show to promote his new series, Gaslit – which is about the Watergate Scandal.
Watch what he did.

“What you’ve got is a criminal for a leader who is wrapped in a messy war, embroiled in a stupid scandal and surrounded by ambitious idiots and really should resign, and erm …
No, I’m sorry that’s the intro to Boris Johnson.”
The reaction from Twitter says all that needs to be said.

I’m hearing Dan Stevens has now apologised for his Boris Johnson joke on The One Show. Apparently, Dan had had a very busy day of work and wasn’t aware at the time that he was breaking BBC rules. He also didn’t realise he was on The One Show.

Doubt Dan will be invited back on BBC – even though he’s saying what the majority of the nation are thinking.
