During the most recent episode of the popular ITV program, presenter Ranvir Singh was compelled to warn co-host Richard Madeley against comparing Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to “Russian dolls.”
The presenters briefly mentioned actor Ben Stiller’s trip to the war-torn Ukraine and his first encounter with Zelenskyy on Tuesday’s (June 21) program.
Journalist Sean Fletcher described the scene in the studio while reminding viewers that the president of Ukraine was also an actor and had previously played a president on television a few years prior.
Richard remarked, “It’s like Russian Dolls,” as he became enthused about the couple’s union.
Ranvir told Richard not to make the comparison
Ranvir was alarmed by his remarks but was laughing awkwardly. He quickly reprimanded him for making that specific comparison, but Richard snapped back, “Who cares?”
As the catastrophe played out on their screens, viewers quickly noticed the error and immediately went to Twitter to express their opinions.
